1A: Hospitalist, and Surgeons, and Consulting Providers- OH MY!

Expand Session Information

Inpatient Pro-Fee services oftentimes collide with multiple providers and specialties caring for the same patient. Many times, we find hospital protocols are taking precedence over the need for medical necessity, and we all know that ALL services must be medically reasonable, indicated, and that we must prove each is medically necessary. During this session we will discuss complexities associated with a multiple provider approach to care, global bundling concerns, concurrent care, critical care, split-shared services, and of course discharges. Case studies will be presented for a hands-on learning opportunity.

1E: Compliant Provider Queries

Expand Session Information

Querying is an important part of the coding and clinical documentation improvement process. A query may be necessary when there is incomplete, conflicting, and/or ambiguous information in the medical record. Coders should be able to identify when a query is appropriate and when it is not. In order to assign diagnosis and procedural codes to the highest degree of specificity, there must be supportin gdocumentation. Querying should occur only to improve documentation and never to increase revenue. A query should be non-leading and unbias. Did you know even your query template header may lead your provider in an unintended direction? Join this session an dlearn all about writing compliant provider queries.
