Correct documentation and coding for E/M (evaluation and management) services are among the most misunderstood requirements placed on a physician. Improper documentation and/or coding for E/M services can result in major compliance violations and/or loss of income for the practice. The implementation of EHR systems which offer coding or coding recommendations has further added to the confusion and error potential.
Do you know what actions need to be taken to protect the practice for both compliance and income optimization (within the parameters as set forth by a compliant coding structure in your practice)? How do you teach E/M to your providers? What should you look for once an EHR has been implemented? How do you simplify this confounding topic for your providers to enable them to care for patients and not be overwhelmed by E/M calculations?
Join this session with certified coding instructor and compliance officer Barbara J. Cobuzzi - MBA, CPC, CENTC, COC, CPC-P, CPC-I, CPCO, who will take on all the above questions in detail. She will discuss the potential coding dangers related to E/M and how your providers can steer clear of them. She will also share tips and ideas for presenting E/M service issues effectively, getting E/M documentation right and discuss how to take care of EHR issues effectively.
