Clinical Documentation Excellence

Clinical Documentation Excellence is a bulletin that focuses on topics relevant to Primary Care Providers. In each issue we focus on a topic that is timely or requested by our clients. The information typically focuses on clinical background, diagnosis tips, documentation requirements and ICD-10 coding guidance. Occasionally, we will digress to make sure providers are in the know regarding issues that impact compliance. The format is intended to be a quick read for busy providers, with emphasis on key words and bottom-line actions or conclusions.
