Confidently Auditing Therapy Documentation:
A Primer for Quality Assurance, Performance Improvement & Clinician Proficiency
Webinar – Tuesday, December 13, 2016
8:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. PST – Webinar Recording Available
The important task of auditing interdisciplinary documentation is not an easy one. Evaluating the quality of the content for disciplines that are different from the clinical background of the reviewers is especially challenging. With many internal and external reviewers having a background in nursing, therapy documentation can seem like a foreign language. Many agencies have firsthand experience with denials and the associated loss of revenue due to “insufficient” therapy documentation but still lack confidence that they can proactively manage the ever-present risks.
This session will provide a solid foundation for auditing the quality of therapy documentation by focusing on the key elements that define and confirm “skilled, reasonable and necessary”. In addition, the Kornetti & Kraft Health Care Solutions’ Quality Therapy Documentation Audit Tool will be included at no extra charge.
Attendees will come away from this session empowered to confidently audit therapy documentation in an effective and efficient manner.
This program will benefit Therapists and Therapy Assistants – all disciplines, Compliance officers, Administrators/Directors, Clinical Staff Managers, Clinical Educators, Nurse Case Managers, and Quality Managers.
- · Identify key elements that contribute to quality therapy documentation
- · Utilize a quality auditing tool for review of agency therapy documentation
- · Provide clinicians direction for improvement of defensibility of existing documentation
