“He said that she said that they said…”
The major issue with the RACs is the disconnect between what sometimes is said and what is billed. The “root cause analysis” of this dynamic inevitably will point to failure to document sufficiently, according to our special guest on Monitor Monday: Jon Elion, president and CEO of ChartWise Medical Systems. Ergo, clinical documentation improvement, the good doctor concludes. Make sure your clinical documentation specialists are registered to listen to this special edition of Monitor Monday.
Also, most would agree that services billed must reflect actual services provided to beneficiaries, as documented in patient records. But does that always occur with the regularity it should? Christina Panos with Wolters Kluwer Law & Business will explain why effective charge-capture practices must be based on documentation found within each patient’s medical record.
Always-popular attorney David Glaser with the law firm of Fredrikson & Byron also will enlighten us all Monday with his refreshing take on a prickly subject that could turn out to be “risky business.”
And J. Paul Spencer, the compliance officer for Fi-Med Management, will return with an exclusive update on the Medicaid RACs. Finally, again sitting in for Monitor Monday senior correspondent Nancy Beckley will be longtime listener Taryn Schraad, audit and appeal specialist for Lawrence Memorial Hospital in Lawrence, Kan.
All this and more is coming up on Monitor Monday on June 24.
