Product Description

Learn to Create an Audit Compliance Plan Specific to Your Practice and Insure Compliance with an RAC Audit

Even though there are specific guidelines for physician documentation, sometimes this documentation can be grey or interpreted differently by auditors or physicians. If a practice has more than one auditor, each auditor can view the guidelines differently than the other and this can create differences in the result of the audit and frustrations to providers. Providers also ask for education information in writing. An auditing compliance plan will specify in writing the details for physician documentation and will insure all auditors are reviewing the medical record correctly.

In this session by expert speaker Melody S. Irvine you will learn how to make this compliance plan specific for your practice. Implementing an auditing compliance plan at your practice can insure that every auditor is auditing according to the guidelines and compliance specifications that are written by your practice.
