Read Frequently Asked Questions

The training program will allow directors and clinicians to establish best practices for thriving medical documentation patterns and practices. It will provide an overview of how the interdisciplinary team can successfully establish protocols and strategies for clear, concise and supportive documentation.

Why Should You Attend:

The key to having pristine medical records lies in the underlying education provided to all staff who contribute to the medical record. Thorough and timely documentation with respect to treatment objectives can help clearly demonstrate a beneficiary’s need for skilled care. Clinical staff must learn how to document medical necessity. The unique skills of the nurse, therapist, physician and social service clinician must be evident from medical record entries.

Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Service (CMS) establishes laws by which the post-acute providers must abide by. Understanding technical eligibility and practical matter criteria are just two of the essential pieces to the medical record puzzle. The interdisciplinary team has long struggled to coordinate the medical record to support the skilled nature of services provided and allow for consistency in medical descriptors supporting coordination of care.

This course will highlight the definition of medical necessity. Learn how to assess if patient evaluations are thorough and the elements are captured within the medical record. Are the daily skills of the licensed professional represented within the documentation? This presentation will highlight tips for training staff to capture the skills provided in a concise manner that is efficient and conveys the critical elements of care.
