Product Description

Take note before you amend those medical notes -- you could be launching a compliance disaster.

The modern medical record is much, much more, than a document that manages patient care — it must hold valuable information for insurance companies, government agencies and lawyers. Needless to say, maintaining those records is a big compliance weight on your team's shoulders. But you can learn the ropes during this presentation with corporate compliance officer and billing expert Kenneth Engel, CPC, CHC, ACS-EM, CCP. He'll guide you through potential regulatory issues associated with the creation of medical records (both paper and electronic) and share his best practices that could save your practice or facility big bucks in legal fees.

Topics covered:

  • What documentation really is, and why it's so important for your practice/facility to get it right.
  • The rules on creating a medical record ... and what you risk if you go outside them.
  • How much time you have to complete a medical record.
  • Need to correct, edit and amend notes in an existing record? Here's how to do it without creating trouble for yourself.
  • Paper vs. electronic: Get the skinny on the pros and cons … and when it's best to use either type.
  • The keys to compliant record maintenance -- following these rules and regs will keep you out of the courtroom.

Who should attend? Coding professionals, billing specialists, medical office managers, HIM directors, practice managers, case managers and all doctors, physicians, nurses, therapists or anyone else who works with medical records.
