Do You Understand Those Specific Areas of EMR Where The Provider May Be Vulnerable To A Payer Audit?

Electronic Medical Records enhance the efficiency of the health care and make it less expensive, as well as improve the quality of care by making patients’ medical history easily available to all who treat them. As the use of EMR increases in the provider arena, problems have been identified that affect claims billed.  

This session conducted by Dorothy D.

Here are a few topics covered in the session:

  • Advantages to EMR, including increased legibility
