Wound Care Documentation
Webinar – Wednesday, August 17, 2016
8:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. PST – Webinar Recording Available
The documentation captured, during an encounter, becomes part of the patient’s legal medical record. As healthcare providers, we believe one of the medical record’s most critical functions is to plan and provide continuity of care for a patient’s medical treatment. Healthcare providers need to also remember the additional functions of the medical record, including providing information for the financial reimbursement, information for quality improvement/assurance and peer-review committees, state licensing and state regulatory agencies when assessing the quality of care provided and the critical information in an accreditation process.
Common documentation and coverage issues will often result in denials. Learn how to safe guard your agency against documentation issues. In this interactive program, we will discuss the different types of wounds, the new OASIS changes with OASIS C2 related to the wound section, and continuing documentation of medical necessity for coverage.
