All About wound Care

When it comes to coding, billing, and documentation, it is so important to make sure that all the “T’s” are crossed, and all the “I’s” are dotted. In other words, in the event of an audit, you need to make sure that the medical record documentation supports the coding of the services that were provided to justify the reimbursements that were made. Why is this so important? At some point everyone is audited. An audit should never be more than an inconvenience. Never a life changing event.

Learning Objectives: At the end of the educational program, the learner will be able to:

  • Understand what the appropriate documentation requirements with treating wounds
  • Understand the importance of documentation of the amount of material used with using advanced wound care products
  • Understand the rules and regulations about medical appropriateness of advanced wound care products
  • Part 1 - Course Staff
