All across HIM and CDI the topic of when to query the provider is identified as a challenging topic. Knowing when and when not to query for documentation clarification is a vital part of the day to day work of the Coding and CDI Professional. But there are also compliance risks with querying, thus it's extremely important to know and understand these risks and vulnerabilities. Queries should be included in reviews and audits to ensure compliance is being met, both from the HIM Coding and CDI perspectives. Looking for query solutions and answers can help to identify the root causes for non-answered and non-compliant queries. Now is the time, to learn more about when and when NOT to query!
During this 90 minute educational program information will be provided and case scenario's will be shared that capture when and when not to query.
