The Note Bloat Dilemma | Causes & Cure
Physician practices are busy, and any wasted time can be detrimental to the revenue cycle. Note bloat is not a gastrointestinal sign of disease but a condition found in some revenue cycles that prevents an efficient, compliant process of clinical documentation.
One of the primary goals of the 2021 E/M Guideline changes was to reduce administrative burden on clinicians and their practices. As an AMA official involved in the changes, part of the reason was to “eliminate the hassle factor” and “make it easy to do what’s clinically relevant and appropriate.”
In this webinar, Dr. CJ Wolf and Stephani Scott bring their decades of coding and compliance experience to the table, discussing how to reduce note bloat and improve revenue cycle and documentation efficiencies.
