Welcome message from Dr. Stephen Levinson, MD
The introduction of electronic health records (EHRs) has introduced significant challenges to compliant E/M documentation and coding. The “over-billing” consequences of these coding discrepancies are now in the public spotlight with the U.S. Attorney General, Secretary of Health and Human Services, OIG, and Congressional Committees threatening incentive funding and aggressively targeting non-compliant practices and facilities.
This 4-hour workshop created by Stephen Levinson, MD, a nationally renowned expert in compliant EHR documentation and coding, provides coders and auditors a dynamic interactive forum to analyze the most commonly missed and misinterpreted E/M elements commonly encountered in electronic record designs and dramatically improve their E/M coding.
