Description

Medical house call practices have several unique demands placed on them in caring for their vulnerable, frail patient segment. More recently this has included a particular focus on the importance of documentation and coding. This has been driven by CMS audits, revenue demands, as well as IAH and other value-based initiatives in which coding, patient acuity, and revenue are inextricably linked.

Join us and learn how to help your practice by assisting your providers to document and code accurately and efficiently. In this session we will review the role the house call team plays in documentation and revenue cycle management, offering tips to reduce provider burden, and enhancing practice revenue.
