Are your physicians providing detailed documentation as they adhere the 2021 Evaluation and Management (E&M) Guidelines? Frank Cohen, senior healthcare analyst and director of business intelligence for DoctorsManagement, is concerned that they might not be – which, he believes, squarely puts them in an uphill battle, defending themselves from quality audits and potential malpractice suits. And Cohen has the numbers to back up his concerns, which he will share during the next live edition of Monitor Mondays.
Other segments to be featured during the live broadcast include the following:
