Join us for a 4-hour CME accredited activity entitled, “Clinical Documentation Improvement,” on Saturday, September 13, 9:00 am – 1:30 pm. Our experts will outline information that is required to be incorporated into clinical documentation within the patient’s medical record to avoid being denied by 3rd party payers because of “lack of supporting documentation,” “insufficient documentation,” or “lack of medical necessity.”
The physician’s documentation is the most powerful communication component in medical practice today, and is the core communication within the medical record. Everything that chronicles your patient care from quality performance indicators, medical necessity, severity of illness, length of stay, level of care, utilization of resources and yes, ultimate reimbursement is derived from your clinical documentation within the office or hospital medical record alone! Current reimbursement trends as well as future healthcare reform initiatives necessitate accurate and complete clinical documentation in support of value based, cost effective and efficient delivery of patient care. Effective, explicit clinical documentation has a dynamic, positive impact on clinical, financial, and compliance profiles.
We hope you will join us, either “in person” or via webcast. The session will take place at SMA’s Headquarters office, located at 35 W. Lakeshore Drive, Suite 201, in Birmingham, Alabama. Alternatively, watch from the comfort of your home, office, or anywhere an internet connection is available, on a personal computer or laptop.
