Bethlehem, PA (PRWEB) October 13, 2008
Dr. Ruthann Russo, author of A Compelling Case for Clinical Documentation and creator of the CAMP™ Method training system announced a series of free webinars addressing the book and the training method. The first two sessions will be held October 15 and October 22, 2008 at 1:00 ET. Registration is available at http://www.acompellingcase.com.
The web-based presentations are designed to introduce healthcare executives, managers and staff to Russo's newest publication, A Compelling Case for Clinical Documentation, a guidebook and training system for implementing a clinical documentation management program or evaluating the status of existing programs.
Webinar attendees will learn how to use the CAMP™ Method to:
- Base all of their CDI teaching and operations on the 7 criteria for high quality clinical documentation
- Get physicians to feel they are partners in the clinical documentation process
- Ensure a compliant CDI program
- Increase query response and decrease query rates
- Achieve the most from the CDI auditing and monitoring process
- Measure training success
"Any discussion about healthcare in the U.S. should revolve around patients. A Compelling Case for Clinical Documentation demonstrates that through proper training and best practices a modern healthcare organization can align with its medical staff and achieve operational efficiencies, increased regulatory compliance, accurate reimbursement and patient satisfaction while still focusing on high levels of patient care," said Dr. Ruthann Russo.
