PM-03: Will Your Records Survive an Audit?
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
The United States Government and the healthcare industry recoup significant amounts of money annually from healthcare providers as a direct result of medical record audits. For many providers, the adoption of electronic record systems in recent years has only increased the complexity of being in compliance with an already complex system. This course will provide a review of the necessary knowledgebase required for the proper documentation of optometric records, including required exam elements, interpretation and report, modifiers and drawings. Recommendations on steps to take when being audited will also be discussed. As healthcare delivery transitions from a fee-for-service to a fee-for-value model, the question is no longer “will I be audited” but “when will I be audited.” This course will prepare you. Speakers include Michael McGovern, OD, FAAO, Richard Soden, OD, FAAO. COPE ID: 54157-PM
