Program Description

Querying in the outpatient (OP) setting is a practice on the horizon and is taking off. For clinical documentation improvement (CDI) and coding professionals, understanding the ethical and compliant query process is key to success. The OP setting includes documentation diagnosis, evaluation and management, CPT, and OP procedure clarification. An AHIMA Practice Brief entitled “Guidelines for Physician Office Query Practice” (July 2018) provides important guidance that applies to query activities and processes in the outpatient setting. During this webinar, the presenters will:


  • Provide an overview of the AHIMA Practice Brief
  • Review outpatient query opportunities and rationale
  • Discuss OP query best practices
  • Enhance knowledge through OP case review and discussion


Who Should Attend
Physicians, OP CDI and Coding Staff, Coding Directors and Managers, Coding Auditors and Educators, CDI Management and Leadership, Coding Compliance and Revenue Cycle Staff, and Risk Management.
