Gain an understanding of audit factors that are most important, and what to do if the audit yields a bad result.

The federal governments increasing interest in fraud, waste and abuse heightens the awareness of physician practices, both large and small, of the increasing scrutiny of physician documentation to support billings. In the past, audits were performed and physicians were lectured but all too often little improvement was noted. How can practices efficiently and effectively audit physician services? If we audit and have a bad result, what are the next steps? This educational material focuses on understanding the regulatory landscape, why the audit process is important, what factors are important to the audit, how to document the audit, and addressing the outcomes.
