Overview

Balancing the tension between governmental compliance and financial viability takes effort. It is even more challenging when the physicians resist cooperation or do not engage in the review and educational process of ongoing coding and documentation reviews. Too often, practitioners do not know their weaknesses and vulnerabilities in coding and documentation, including their use of electronic health records templates. Knowledge is power — the more you know, the more you can control events. What you don’t know can hurt you, particularly when it comes to the compliance and financial matters of your hospital, health system, medical practice and the practice of your employed providers.

When you know your vulnerabilities, you can take appropriate action. An effective coding audit can result from a carefully considered compliance plan, a customized approach, and investment in the time and energy to create an atmosphere of proactive education and support. Our presenters will help participants identify tools to create an effective coding education plan. They will share resources health care organizations can use to stay current on compliance changes and teach participants how to evaluate their organization's vulnerabilities to protect it during an audit.

Objectives

  • identify the tools to create an effective coding education plan for your organization
  • discuss where to find resources to stay current on compliance guideline changes
  • evaluate your organization’s vulnerabilities so you can protect it during an audit
