Documentation for Compliance, Revenue Capture and Quality - June 28 
The implementation of electronic health records (EHR) has created new challenges in terms of documentation risk and compliance. In the paper world, if it wasn't documented, it wasn’t done. In the electronic world, if it's documented, we question whether it was really done. This session will focus on the importance of documentation from the compliance, revenue capture and quality perspectives. It will also discuss the most common documentation best practices and errors in the EHR world.
