  • Public Interest Webinar Series: Electronic Medical Records, Part III:Coding and billing integrity

    Includes a Live Event on 06/01/2018 at 2:00 PM (EDT)

    While current public policy strongly encourages providers to use EHRs, the government has also expressed its concern that some providers may be using EHR functionalities to bill improperly. EHR systems pose certain risks of documentation errors that can result in incorrect coding and billing. In addition, some EHR functionalities that are intended to assist providers in coding correctly and capturing charges completely with greater efficiency have proven to have limited effectiveness to date and to present additional compliance issues in practice.

    Time: 2:00-3:30 PM Eastern (90 minutes)
    Session Format: Live Webinar

    While current public policy strongly encourages providers to use EHRs, the government has also expressed its concern that some providers may be using EHR functionalities to bill improperly.  EHR systems pose certain risks of documentation errors that can result in incorrect coding and billing.  In addition, some EHR functionalities that are intended to assist providers in coding correctly and capturing charges completely with greater efficiency have proven to have limited effectiveness to date and to present additional compliance issues in practice.

    This Webinar will explore (1) the government's current focus on EHR coding and billing issues, (2) common sources of errors in Evaluation and Management coding in EHR systems, and (3) current limitations in EHR "coding engine" and charge capture capabilities.  The speakers will focus on the policy and public interest issues that these issues raise and suggest approaches to avoiding these issues and promoting compliance in the EHR environment of today.
