Audit Risks for 2021: New E&M Guidelines and Documentation with Financial Considerations

Is your organization ready for the new evaluation and management (E&M) documentation changes that will take effect on January 1, 2021? 

The changes were intended to simplify documentation requirements; however, they will impact multiple areas such as electronic medical records, creation of new documentation patterns, charge determination questions, code selection based on time vs. medical necessity and potential billing profile shifts for providers. 

Day Egusquiza, President of AR Systems, Karen Kvarfordt, RHIA, President of DiagnosisPlus, Inc., and SAI Global's Marcy Utley, Senior Product Manager discuss these considerations, practical applications and audit risks anticipated with these updates.

Additionally, our experts will identify trends that are here to stay in compliance education and new market potentials for doctors and hospital organizations.
