Product Description

How Auditors Can Transition and Implement Policies for Physical Health Records Electronically


Physician offices have moved towards transitioning physical patient health records to their electronic counterparts. However, this has created a cluster of challenges for auditors who prefer following guidelines and policies created for dealing with paper records. The E&M rules for 1995 and 1997 are still around, and auditors may not know how to apply those guidelines to EHRs.

Join this informative session by nationally-recognized expert Jill M. Young, CPC, CEDC, CIMC, to learn more about this transition and determine key risk areas. Jill will share tips for spotting manipulated entries, while also discussing policies and OIG reports relating to EHRs. The session will also shed light on the most common transitions/translations made by EHR software that contribute to noncompliant documentation.

  • Cut and paste, cloning, and carry forward: Do they help or hurt your documentation?
  • Templates: Whether it is OK to use them, and if so, when and how?

  • Common process areas that cause coding errors within your EHR and billing process
