Medicare Coding and Documentation Toolkit, Part 1: An Episode of Care

  • Registration Closed

Prepare your practice for data-driven, value-based models of care that are demanded by today’s healthcare environment.  This course provides a framework for navigating the value-based healthcare environment through the delivery of episodic care.  Presented by Jennifer Rathmann, DC, and Lee Matthis, DC, this course explains the fundamentals of reimbursement under Medicare, which emphasize a crisis or episode.  This learning opportunity describes each phase of the episodic care treatment model (beginning, middle and end) and provides you the information you need to properly code and bill your services, document the clinical visit, and discuss the patient’s options with them in order to provide patient-centered care.  

Factors such as patient choice and increased out-of-pocket costs make it important for providers to offer the most effective and efficient care in order to attract patients to their practice.  By taking this course, you will gain insights into how to train your team to follow best practices for proper Medicare documentation and billing and how to measure your practice’s improvement in these areas using tools such as a scorecard. This course can help keep your practice competitive in today’s value-focused healthcare environment.  

Medicare Coding and Documentation Toolkit Part 1: An Episode of Care is the first course in a four-part series. The presenters will introduce you to several common definitions of concepts discussed throughout the series. It is recommended, though not required, that you take Part 1 prior to taking the remainder of the courses in the series.
