This extensive program will transform the way that you and your staff face that vital piece of the healthcare puzzle: Documentation and Compliance.
Physical Therapists do amazing work that helps people move their lives in a more positive direction, but unfortunately, too frequently they are not being paid for their services. Complain all we like, the reason for this is often improper or poor documentation.
We have partnered with PT Compliance Group to offer this outstanding course that promises to Transform Your Documentation. We offer this course as either an Online Only Program where you can watch the lectures and take the exams at your own pace at home, or you can take this offering as a Hybrid course where you can watch the lectures online and then come in for a 1-Day Live Documentation Workshop! If you opt for the workshop be sure to bring some of your documentation so we can see how you are doing!
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
Identify methods to write defensible documentation that links objective and measurable physical impairments to functional deficits that requires the skilled intervention of a physical or occupational therapist
Describe how to establish medical necessity for patient evaluations that defensively document reasonable and necessary services under current third party payer requirement.
Explain how to justify individualized documentation of patient progression that assesses condition, complexities, and sophistication.
Demonstrate knowledge of how to successfully write defensible documentation for initial evaluations, daily notes, progress notes, reevaluations, and discharge summaries.
