  • Fall Prevention: Improving Strength, Balance and Flexibility in Older Adults

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 10/08/2019

    Older adults are the fastest growing population in the United States. Falls are a major public health concern in older adults, and the leading cause of injury-related death in this age group. Chiropractors are well-suited by their training and expertise to assess fall risk in older adults and implement evidence-based fall prevention strategies. In this session, Dr. Lisa Killinger, DC, will examine the issue of fall prevention in older adults. She will explore why older patients fall and review evidence-based assessment tools related to fall risk. Strategies to improve several of the key causes of falls will be shared. Simple steps will be discussed to improve the balance, strength and flexibility of older adult patients, while not ignoring the role posture plays in falls as well.

  • Medicare Coding and Documentation Toolkit, Part 3: The Middle of Care

    Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits

    As the patient progresses through treatment, it’s critical that you systematically document their progress in the context of the treatment plan and functional goals. This course prepares you to appropriately code for chiropractic services under Medicare, including proper application of the AT modifier on adjustment and use of macros. In addition, you will learn about the vital components of clinical documentation for the Medicare patient at the midpoint of care, including how to thoroughly record subjective and objective assessments, updates to the treatment plan, techniques or passive therapies applied during visits, and changes to treatment frequency along with an explanation as to the rationale for the change. Finally, presenters Jennifer Rathmann, DC, and Lee Matthis, DC will prepare you to handle and methodically document the necessary conversations with your patient about progress, self-management techniques, potential new treatments or frequency, and in certain instances, referral to another provider. Medicare Coding and Documentation Toolkit Part 3: The Middle of Care is the third course in a four-part series . It is recommended, though not required, that you take Part 1 and Part 2 prior to taking this course.

  • Medicare Coding and Documentation Toolkit, Part 4: The End of Care

    Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits

    In Part IV of this series, Dr. Rathmann and Dr. Matthis will examine how chiropractors can repeat, revise, and apply the same steps from Parts II and III to the end of caring for a patient. Building a system to code future visits as “elective” instead of episodic, and properly transitioning to GA modifiers will be discussed. How to properly prepare final clinical documentation will be identified, including final outcomes assessments, VAS/PEG assessments, self-management suggestions, and the signed/dated/scanned ABN form if continuing maintenance care is chosen by the patient. How to manage end of care conversations with patients will be explained, including the release from care, referrals if the patient has not met their functional goals or can be helped by another practitioner, self-management techniques and maintenance care discussions, and explaining the ABN form and Medicare coverage of “elective” chiropractic visits if the patient does elect maintenance care.

    As progress towards established goals plateaus, you may encounter the point of care where it is time to transition your Medicare patient from episodic care to elective care – also known as maintenance care.  After completing this course, you will understand how to correctly code chiropractic care using GA modifiers to reflect elective care versus “episodic” care caused by an episode or crisis.  Presenters Jennifer Rathmann, DC, and Lee Matthis, DC will offer you the tools to easily recognize the “end of care,” appropriately finalize the patient’s progress in the record, and build a system that ensures you properly code the patient’s care as “elective” for visits beyond the episode of care.   

    You will also gain insights into how to engage your patients in conversations about elective care, which is not covered by Medicare, as well as the importance of notifying the provider if a new injury or flare-up occurs, which would prompt a new episode.  Finally, the presenters will explain how to use the Advanced Beneficiary Notice (ABN) to provide chiropractic care to Medicare patients after the end of episodic care and how to establish an alert system to update these important forms annually with elective patient populations.  

    Medicare Coding and Documentation Toolkit Part 4: The End of Care is the fourth course in a four-part series.  It is recommended, though not required, that you take Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3 prior to taking this course.
