About the Course
Clinical documentation is part of every service complementary and alternative medicine providers render to patients. It is a reflection of your professionalism and it sets you apart from other alternative providers.
The seminar will focus on avoiding common documentation errors, meeting today’s standards, and new technologies and requirements that will soon be the norm for healthcare professionals. The program will also look at briefly at billing and coding, including ways to prepare for the shift to ICD-10.
Breakout sessions for each discipline will be held following a general session that establishes a common background.
