Mastering Physician Queries in the Hospital Setting
March 04, 2015 11:00am MT
Join Pamela Haney, CPC, CIC and Christopher G Richards, RHIA, BA, BSHIM as they discuss the art of mastering physician queries in the hospital setting, including when a query occurs and its role in the documentation process.
Coders have a fiduciary responsibility to get documentation right. Physician querying is a vital part of the documentation process. These steps can be difficult for coders to master. The querying of physician occurs for several reasons: clarification of documentation to ensure DRG optimization; resolving contradictions to address inconsistent information; and completeness to ensure data quality.
This presentation will overview documentation expectations, the query process, methods of auditing, and monitoring and maintaining a compliant physician query process.
