Product Description

Strategies for EMR Implementation to Minimize Coding Errors and Audit Risk

Physician practices often become so involved with the implementation of Electronic Health Records and ensuring compliance with meaningful use that they overlook the coding and documentation aspects. 

Expert speaker Kim Huey, MJ, CPC, CCS-P, PCS, CPCO in this session, will discuss the coding and documentation hazards inherent in Electronic Health Records, including excessive documentation that is not medically necessary, cloning, and inappropriate diagnosis codes. You will further get suggestions for compliant coding and billing.

This audio session will also review EMR design and templates and strategies for EMR implementation to minimize coding errors and audit risk.

Kim will address the following issues:

  • Is meaningful use really meaningful?
  • Is information available between entities?
  • Is the quality of care improved – or even maintained?
  • Is the health information secure?
  • Are medically necessary services provided, documented, billed for, and reimbursed appropriately?

Session Highlights:
