Access to good training and education on practice management and coding issues has proved beneficial to physician success. Getting up-to-date information on compliance, insurance reimbursement, office efficiency, coding and billing is crucial for effective and efficient practice management. The ACR’s Committee on Rheumatologic Care (CORC) has created the premier one-day E/M Documentation Trends and Best Practices coding workshop for rheumatologists, fellows in training and practice administrators.

To be held in New Orleans on March 27 during the State-of-the-Art Clinical Symposium, this workshop is designed to meet the demand for training and education on new coding guidelines. This workshop will sift through the major changes to evaluation and management (E/M) codes that affect billing, coding and claims processing, and will help attendees determine how to begin preparing for these changes now, by revising templates and educating practice staff before Jan. 1, 2021.
Physicians must reinvent and readjust their operations to create better efficiencies, as well as methodically evaluate their revenue cycle to capitalize on cash flow. This practice realignment includes taking a broader view of every aspect of a practice, which comprises taking a closer look at the daily operations of the practice. Physicians and practice administrators may have to reengineer workloads, workflows and staff responsibilities; review contracts; evaluate accounts receivable; and assess collections—all of which require education and training.
Real-life cases and discussions that connect clinical scenarios to a selection of CPT and diagnosis codes make this workshop ideal for rheumatologists and coding staff. This workshop is rich with clinical descriptions, a comprehensive workbook, resource guides, templates, and coding examples attendees will keep for future reference. A bonus breakout session designed as an interactive open forum, with a mix of physicians, consultants and practice managers/administrators on hand, will address key issues facing rheumatology practices. Significant time is set aside for questions and audience participation.
In a time of great change for medical practices, healthcare professionals must be ready to move with the ever-changing tide. This year’s meeting promises to be educational and invaluable as we welcome an amazing team of industry experts to share their perspectives and experience on practical solutions attendees will be able to readily implement in their offices.
This one-day coding workshop will:
- Discuss key changes in the medical decision-making chart and identify the new terminology required for documentation;
- Identify the differences in documentation for time vs. medical decision making;
- Discuss the ins and outs of what providers will no longer have to re-document in the medical records for history and examination;
- Offer a panel discussion to share best practices for coding in 2020, collections, appeals and practice improvement;
- Identify tools and resources for rheumatology practices; and
- Offer attendees the chance to exchange ideas with their peers about the latest rheumatology management hot topics.
Register today for the 2020 ACR E/M Documentation Trends and Best Practices coding workshop.
