This webinar is a must-attend program for any nurse, physician, or professional working in health care today. Accurate, concise documentation in medical records is the key to preventing claims of fraud and abuse, and is vital if the records are reviewed by the Recovery Audit Contractors (RACs), the Office of Inspector General (OIG), or the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Yet many hospitals have seen an increase in documentation problems with the introduction of electronic health records.
Our expert speaker will discuss the importance of documentation to avoid allegations of malpractice, substandard care, accreditation nightmares and denial of reimbursement, and will provide more than 50 recommendations to improve documentation. The presentation will cover key problematic Joint Commission (TJC) and CMS Hospital Conditions of Participation (CoP) requirements. It will also identify issues that must be documented in order to be reimbursed by CMS, as well as avoid allegation of fraud, abuse and improper documentation. It will also review the new Medicare Outpatient Observation Notice (MOON) form for 2020.
This program will also assist in determining the fields that should be present as hospitals amend electronic medical records to capture the elements required by CMS and the Joint Commission, including requirements for protocols, standing orders, and order sets.
At the conclusion of this session, participants should be able to:
- Discuss two recommendations or tips to improve documentation to reduce the risk of liability.
- Explain what should be documented in the assessment pain.
- Describe that TJC has the Record of Care chapter which includes many things that must be documented in the medical record.
- Explain the CMS requirement that all orders be in writing in the order sheet even if hospitals use approved protocols.
- Discuss that both CMS and TJC have standards that require specific documentation of verbal orders.ain
