E/M Chart Auditing Workshop

A proactive stance is your best defense against an audit.

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.

Keep a healthy bottom line with this comprehensive self-audit system.

4 Reasons to Attend
  1. Adopt a baseline 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.

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. Class participants will learn how to reduce practice risk and improve claim submissions.

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
