Product Description

Learn What’s Appropriate to Cut-and-Paste—and What’s Not

Is your cloned or cut-and-pasted documentation compliant? What should you do when the physicians don’t follow the rules for unique documentation for each date of service? Are “smart phrases” okay to use?

Get the answers to these questions and more in this live audio conference by healthcare compliance guru Jill Young. Learn the current rules and policies on cut-and-pasted documentation and cloning. Find out when it’s okay to pull forward information in chart documentation and when it’s not. Also learn what information you can cut-and-paste without getting into trouble, what other insurance carriers say about cut-and-paste documentation, and the financial risk you face with cut-and-pasted notes.

After attending this informative session, you’ll understand the concept of “clinical plagiarism” and walk away with tips for recognizing cut-and-pasted or cloned documentation. You’ll know how to explain efficient documentation methods to physicians, so you can eliminate the need for templates. Also, you’ll understand the penalties to physicians for non-unique documentation.
