In January, HSG conducted a survey about several provider compensation topics – including how organizations perceived the new coding and documentation changes would impact them. Now that everyone has had a few months of actual experience with the changes, we want to know how you’re faring. Click here to access the article about the survey results, and add your comments below.
What have you experienced in your organizations? Please comment below.
- Have providers continued to use the familiar MDM approach – or have they moved to time spent when advantageous?
- Capturing and documenting time spent is a foreign concept for many specialties. Have the providers devised mechanisms to accurately accomplish this change?
- Historic EMR documentation templates were designed to capture elements of the history and physical and have not focused on the criteria applicable to either of these coding documentation approaches. How have you, or your vendor, revised documentation templates to accurately capture information to maximize coding potential? Are you capturing the thought processes behind the plan of care development?
- Have individual and group coding curves, wRVU generation, or reimbursements changed because of the 2023 coding documentation changes?
