Product Description

Clinical Documentation and Audits – The Clinician Connection

Since the clinician’s role is to provide care to patients and families at the end of life, why be concerned about a medical review audit by a Medicare contractor?  Why worry about a survey?  And what does any of this have to do with documentation? The answer is that payment can be denied when eligibility documentation is weak. Poor survey outcomes, as a result of incomplete documentation, puts the hospice in a reactive and defensive mode.

Join this 60-minute audio session presented by expert speaker Roseanne Berry, MSN, RN, who will address the connection between documentation and successfully surviving medical review by the various Medicare contractors (yes, there is more than your Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC), and the documentation connection to passing Medicare surveys. You'll explore the role of a hospice’s monitoring and auditing processes in improving compliance at the clinician level.

Plus, you'll learn:

  • What are the important Eligibility Assessment tools?
  • Where are the areas of focus for Documentation?
  • Monitoring and auditing principles?

Here's a look at what Roseanne will cover:

  • Review the purpose of documentation and the role of the clinician.
  • Demonstrate the use of monitoring and auditing processes to improve success in medical review audits and Medicare surveys.
