Webinar on Demand: The New Horizon: Physician Querying for the Outpatient Setting
CHIA Product Code: WEB148
Webinar Date: October 10, 2018
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
