Product Description

Find out what you absolutely must have - and can’t have - in your physician queries.

If only coding were as easy as a quick interpretation of the physician’s documentation... Because it’s not that easy, every coder is faced with querying physicians for more information. And capturing inpatient severity is even more critical now with MS-DRGs having freshly cropped up in inpatient hospital coding. But there’s a right way and a wrong way to query, and you don’t want to fall on the wrong side of the compliance tracks.

To learn the latest ins and outs of a proper physician query, join nationally known coding and compliance expert, Gloryanne Bryant, RHIA, CCS, for this 1-hour encore teleconference. She’ll cover everything you need to know, from when you should and shouldn’t query to the right way to ask your questions.

Who should attend: Hospital inpatient coders, DRG coordinators, coding supervisors and concurrent documentation specialists.

Here's a sampling of what you’ll learn:

  • Background information on the Physician Query Process: Why it’s done and who can do it.
  • Tips on when you should -- and shouldn’t -- query a physician.
