Recorded March 21, 2019
CMS recognized hospitalists as their specialty in 2017, long after they were a mainstay of providing care to hospitalized patients. Coding Hospitalist Services will cover selecting the correct category of code for inpatients, observations patients, and patients seen in the ED and sent home. It will review the first CMS frequency data for E/M services and describe the documentation requirements for inpatient and observation services.
After the webinar, participants will be able to:
- Compare the frequency data of their physicians with the CMS norms
- Select the correct category of code
- Describe the documentation requirements for history, exam and MDM
