Most physicians end up missing crucial elements while documenting services, even though they understand the importance of documenting them effectively. In order to ensure proper reimbursement, improving clinical documentation has become essential, especially since physicians are increasingly subjected to pre- and post-payment audits, as well as third-party scrutiny.
Even though you have been getting paid for your services, it does not mean that the payment will continue, unless your documentation supports the services that you provided. You need to understand that your payment could be affected by lack of specificity. However, getting to know about the correlation between clinical documentation, quality of care and physician reimbursement can be a challenge.
In this session, expert speaker Melody S. Irvine will assist you in analyzing documentation for the biggest issues affecting physician reimbursement. Melody will assist you in identifying common errors in medical record documentation by reviewing examples of actual documentation.
