Possible Pitfalls of Auditing Electronic
Medical Records
Speaker: Melody Irvine
Live Audio Conference
Wednesday, March 11, 2015
Time: 1 pm ET | 12 pm CT | 11 am MT | 10 am PT
Length: 60 minutes
Identify and Remove Issues with Your Electronic Medical Records Before They Create RAC Audits for Your Physicìans.
As auditors you need to be keenly aware of potential problems with EMR systems. If your EMR system is programmed to choose the level for the physicìan, or allow cut and paste, these are just two of many areas that could create RAC audits for your physicìans. You want to safe guard your physicìans and make them aware of why, how and what to identify potential problems with EMR systems.

Physicìans have been burdened with EMR systems. They are seeing fewer patients these days, therefore its affecting their reimbursements. They need auditors, coders and others to help them make sure their systems are working to their benefit. 

Expert speaker Melody Irvine in this 60-minute session, will help you identify and remove potential issues before they become problems for you and your physicìans. Melody will look at all the possible grey areas of EMR—terminology, drop down boxes, medical necessity and others—that could hold potential problems in the future. Read more
Topics covered in the session:
  • Copy and Paste and potential risks—how does DHHS, Medìcare and even attorneys view the copy and paste features
  • Medical Necessity—Does your computer have a human brain to decipher medical necessity? If the physicìan performs a comprehensive history and exam with low medical decision making, the EMR may code this as a 99215 and these kind of practices put physicìans in a high-risk category for RAC audits
  • Risks with EMR for History, Exam and Medical Decision Making—how are the grey areas deciphered in your EMR system? Are chronìc problems that were not addressed during the visìt counted for? This is just one example of the various problems that have been identified with EMR systems.
