Program Description: As the use of Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems has expanded, so has the number of documentation, coding and billing problems associated with the use of these record keeping systems. Unfortunately, it seems like many of the EHR systems being used by Home Health, Hospice and Personal Care Agencies were developed primarily by programmers, with only minimal input from the clinicians, coders and billers responsible for actually ensuring that the services recorded are factually accurate and fully comply with applicable statutory and regulatory requirements. In recent years, we have seen administrative, civil and criminal cases brought against agencies based on false or fraudulent information entered into an agency’s EHR. This webinar examines the primary problems typically identified by government auditors and discuss how these problems could have been avoided. It also examines how one agency tackled this problem head-on, and decided the best way to fix these common, recurrent, EHR problems was to build their own! This webinar is 60 minutes and includes a brief Q & A session.

Program Learning Outcome: Attendees will actively engage in the learning activity and identify key compliance standards related to electronic health records (EHR).
