Accurate documentation is key to good patient care, but it is also linked to reimbursement and subject to the scrutiny of outside reviews by all carriers. In a time of decreased reimbursement, it is more important than ever to capture all of the medically necessary work for your providers.

In part one, specifically, we will cover the How to's of preparation for teaching your physician E/M Coding - tips, techniques, and strategies.

You Will Learn:

  • Strategies for effective communication with your providers. One cannot expect a provider to change a behavior, if the provider does not understand what is being asked of them and why. It is not productive to talk to a provider in a coding language that they do not understand. Participants will learn how to bridge the language barrier between coding and medicine.
  • Participants also need to give providers rationales as to why the change is necessary. Obtaining a working relationship, involving mutual respect goes a long way to developing a strong repoire with providers.
  • Review some of the most commonly identified areas of insufficient documentation, e.g. ROS and Family Hx.
  • Both bad examples of documentation and good examples of documentation.
