Identifying whether a condition, that occurred in the operative suite or in the post-operative period, is a surgical or post-operative complication can be challenging, even for the most seasoned
professionals. Dr. Adriane Martin, a board-certified general surgeon, will cover common intra-operative complications and post-operative conditions. She will provide participants with a clear
understanding of these events/conditions. The impact of these conditions upon the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) quality measures will also be examined.
A clear understanding of intra-operative and post-operative complications is critical in health care's
quality driven environment. At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to:
- Define a "cause and effect" relationship;
- Identify situations in which diagnosis/conditions are potentially "inherent and/or unavoidable";
- Describe common diagnoses which are potential "surgical complications"; and
- Identify CMS quality measures impacted by "complications"
By gaining a clear understanding of operative and post-operative complications participants will ensure that patient care is being accurately reported. In turn, reimbursement and quality scores will be reflective of the care delivered.
Who Should Attend
Inpatient clinical documentation improvement and coding professionals, revenue cycle/integrity managers, quality improvement professionals and health information managers involved in CMS quality measures.
