Mother May I? Use EMR Forms to Reduce Your Billing and Precert Costs

As health care providers, we want to offer the very best quality care to each of our patients. The clinical documentation processes that physicians follow are arguably as important as their interactions with patients. EHR notes can increase communication within the practice, provide better continuity of care, and improve claim reimbursement. Learn how to create EHR forms that pull relevant information into forms specifically designed for the precert department. And see how Ortho Northeast has utilized their EHR forms to improve clinical notes that ensure the payer has the necessary information to authorize or pay a service. Better yet, they can ensure coding compliance with payer guidelines and follow coding rules. Click the link below to view the 2018 Centricity™ LIVE presentation.
