Are you struggling to engage providers in clinical documentation improvement? Would you benefit from learning how to successfully bridge the gap between clinical documentation and coding guidelines/regulatory requirement? In this workshop you will learn how to communicate effectively with providers. The presenters will discuss the complexities of documentation and coding from the provider and coder perspective.
- Understand complex documentation deficiencies from the clinical and coding perspective
- Key strategies for developing collaborative relationships between providers and coders/auditors
- Learn how to connect with your physician and provide meaningful feedback
- Discuss what providers can learn from coders/auditors to improve clinical documentation
Why is this topic important?
Documentation is crucial from a continuity of care perspective as well as a compliance perspective to support codes that are billed, quality initiatives, and supporting payer methodologies like HCC. Often, our coding descriptors or guidelines don’t clearly align with how providers communicate or document in the medical record. This workshop helps bridge the gap between provider and coder/auditor. We are on the same team and working toward the same goals – quality patient care and compliant reimbursement.
Who would benefit from this topic?
Coders, auditors, CDI professionals, and providers
