An Effective Approach to Coding and Compliance Auditing and Education
- January 11, 2019
Balancing the tension between government compliance and financial viability takes effort, and it is even more challenging when the physician resists cooperation. Too often, practitioners do not know their weaknesses and vulnerabilities in coding and documentation. Knowledge is power, as the adage goes—the more you know, the more you can control events. And what you don’t know can hurt you, particularly about the compliance and financial matters of your medical practice. When you know your vulnerabilities, you can take appropriate action. An effective coding audit can result from a well thought-out compliance plan, a customized approach, and investment in the time and energy to create an atmosphere of pro-active education and support.
