Patient Safety and Health Care Education and Consulting
This webinar is a must attend program for any nurse, physician, or healthcare professional working in healthcare today. Accurate, concise documentation is the key to preventing claims of fraud and abuse, and is vitally important if the medical records are reviewed by the Recovery Audit Contractors (RACs), the Office of Inspector General (OIG), or Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Yet many hospitals have seen an increase in documentation problems with the introduction of electronic health records.
Our expert speaker will discuss the importance of documentation to avoid allegations of malpractice, substandard care, accreditation nightmares and denial of reimbursement, and will provide over 50 recommendations to improve documentation. The presentation will cover key problematic Joint Commission and CMS Hospital Conditions of Participation (CoP) requirements and identify issues that need to be documented in order to be reimbursed by CMS and avoid allegation of fraud, abuse and improper documentation by the RACs. It will also review the new Medicare Outpatient Observation Notice (MOON) form for 2020.
This program will also assist in determining the fields that should be present as hospitals amend electronic medical records to capture the elements required by CMS and the Joint Commission, including requirements for protocols, standing orders, and order sets and how to document these in the medical record.
