Accurate, concise documentation is the key to preventing claims of fraud and abuse, and is vital if the records are reviewed by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Yet, many hospitals have seen an increase in documentation problems with the introduction of electronic health records. Our speaker will discuss the importance of documentation to avoid allegations of malpractice, substandard care, accreditation nightmares, and denial of reimbursement, and will provide recommendations to improve documentation. This program will cover the basics of
documentation including the principles set forth by the American Nurses Association (ANA), as well as expectations from the CMS and The Joint Commission. Additionally, legal implications surrounding documentation will be addressed.
Target Audience: CEOs, COOs, CNOs, Compliance Officers, Joint Commission Coordinators, Quality Improvement Personnel, Risk Managers, and Legal Counsel
