If all encounter documentation notes look the same—or all examinations are the same for every patient—the audit risk is high.
Durham, N.C. (PRWEB) April 23, 2018
AudioEducator, a division of audio conference and corporate education leader ProEdTech, will host the live webinar “2018 CMS Guidelines for Physician Documentation and E&M Codes” with industry veteran Melody S. Irvine on Thursday, April 26, 2018 at 1:00pm ET.
Physicians, coders, and billers know that the documentation must support the encounter—but how is EMR set up for documentation? If all the notes look the same—or all examinations are the same for every patient—the risk for an audit is high. And many other documentation pitfalls also have the potential to incur scrutiny. It’s time for an upgrade!
It will be critical to ensure compliance with 2018 physician documentation requirements in light of the possible changes to documentation CMS is proposing for evaluation and management (E&M) codes.
In this session, coding expert Melody S. Irvine will discuss the CMS Proposed Policy. She will also discuss CMS’s proposed E&M code changes. She will outline the specific areas CMS is looking at for documentation and how the new focus will affect future provider documentation.
E&M codes are always on the OIG Workplan, so get prepared to protect facility from unnecessary audits. This session will explain how to spot cloned-looking documentation and other potentially problematic notes, such as over-coding of encounters, that could send up a red flag with the feds.
The session will help anyone and everyone responsible for medical facility coding and billing to understand:
- Possible changes CMS is proposing for E&M documentation
- EMR concerns for documentation
- Risks as per the OIG Workplan
- Cloned notes and other potential risks
- Whether providers are actually performing the services they have documented
