“Finally Friday!” Dealing with Copy & Paste in Documentation

Postby erniedls » Tue Feb 23, 2016 5:52 pm

On this edition of "Finally Friday!" we had a very special presentation by John Zelem, MD, FACS, a General Surgeon, and Vice President of Compliance and Physician Education (ACE) for Executive Health Resources (EHR).

Dr. Zelem answers these questions for us:
  1. Is “Cloning” really such a big problem and how can you tell?
  2. What part of it is illegal, and what part is just poor documentation habits?
  3. What’s the difference between Cloning and “Note Bloat”?
  4. What does the AHIMA, the OIG, CMS, and the DOJ say about it all?
