Physician education is critical to ensure clinical documentation meets medical coding requirements.
As ICD-10 continues to bring major challenges for medical coders nationwide, physician education enables awareness of clinical documentation improvement strategies to ensure appropriate reimbursement.
Because coders get their data directly from the physician, gaps and errors in documentation often come straight from the top. These documentation inefficiencies increase the amount of time dedicated to compliance auditing, resulting in lost profits, denied claims, and negative patient outcomes.
Gain documentation efficiencies that drive revenue and reduce denials.
