E/M Chart Auditing Workshop

A proactive stance is your best defense against an audit. You can pay a consultant to do it, wait for an audit letter, or take a proactive stance and implement your own self-audit procedures. This session will expand your knowledge of evaluation and management coding audits. With increased scrutiny from the OIG, government-contracted and third-party auditors make practice self-checks more important than ever. Improving audit proficiency reduces practice risk and promotes accurate claim submission.

4 Reasons to Attend

  1. Adopt a comprehensive self-audit system used by professional auditors.
  2. Discover missed revenue opportunities when auditing charts based on documentation.
  3. Receive professional tips and auditing tools to help you audit like a pro.
  4. In-class case exercises will improve comprehension and ensure that chart documentation supports the claim submitted.

Class Highlights

  • Create a systematic approach to cross-checking records so you can code E/M encounters with confidence
  • Improve communication with providers and staff about chart documentation
  • Verify appropriate levels of history, exam, and medical decision-making
  • Expert guidance on key components and potential problem areas
  • Identify areas of risk leading to E/M over or under coding and documentation
  • Ensure that your coding practices are compliant with the regulations set forth by private and government payors

It is a matter of "when" not "if" your medical practice will be the target of an audit. Be prepared to defend your practice and code to the letter of the law. This Chart Audit Workshop is a must on your annual training list. This interactive workshop walks you through the audit process by covering the details of key elements of the history, exam, medical decision making for both inpatient and outpatient evaluation and management code.
