Documentation Review

An important part of the medical visit process is documentation. This is the creation of a record detailing what happened during a patient’s visit, including issues or complaints, suggested medical treatment, required testing, etc. As such, you want to ensure that the documentation is clear and concise as this information guides the medical coding and billing for the services rendered.

As you can imagine, there are several reasons for documenting a patient’s visit properly. Here are a few:

  • Communicating with other health professionals. Documentation is the what, why, and how of the care delivered to a patient. If these records are utilized by other providers or nursing staff, understanding the patient’s history is critical to providing the best possible healthcare.
  • Reducing risk management exposure. An accurately documented patient record serves as proof of treatment and care, helping to lessen liability concerns in case of a legal claim.
  • Ensures proper reimbursement. Correct documentation plays a vital role in revenue cycle management and ensuring that a provider is reimbursed appropriately for services rendered.

With your busy schedule, you may not have time to keep up with continuing education on how to improve provider documentation. This is why having Billed Right as a strategic partner can help. Our team has years of experience in reviewing documentation and providing feedback on utilizing proper coding and billing guidelines.

OUR EXPERTISE

How do we do it?

We go into the documentation, only after the visit notes are locked:

  • The coding team retrieves a random sample of weekly visit notes and reviews the components of the documentation to ensure proper guidelines are followed.
  • Education is then provided to doctors on their usage of CPT/ICD-10 to help them improve on future documentation.

 

 

Documentation review is just one part of the Revenue Cycle Management process. Contact us today to learn more about how we can partner with you!
