Understanding Your Audience is Vital in Documenting an Initial Visit
Presented by Dr April Lee D.C., CPCO

Speaking date and time to be determined

Documentation for an initial visit or new episode shouldn’t take all day! But how do you know what is too much and what isn’t enough? With increased regulations and policies, your documentation can take more time than the time spent with the patient. We all know that more patient visits equal increased revenue and feeling like you must write the next best-selling novel only keeps you from reaching your fullest potential. Knowing your audience will often guide you through the level of documentation needed. Many offices fail to understand that documentation plays one of the most critical roles in their practice finances. We hear it all the time, “I don’t have a problem with my documentation; I am getting paid for everything I am doing.” But we wonder if they have looked to make sure.

We’ll identify which missing components can become critical issues for your practice, along with the steps you can take immediately to better communicate through documentation to provide better protection for your practice and your patients.

Risk Management and Compliance take on many forms in this very highly regulated industry of healthcare. It’s estimated that 75% of Chiropractic practices are non-compliant with HIPAA. Additionally, the eight fundamental elements of an effective compliance program are specifically mentioned in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act as a “must have” for certain healthcare providers as a condition of participation in Medicare. A typical roadblock to a successful compliance program is appropriate and systematic implementation in the practice. This session will review the four most important Risk Management issues faced by a typical chiropractic office, and what to do to protect your practice and your patients.

Compliance Implications of the No Surprises Act-Now and Next Year
Presented by Kathy (KMC) Weidner, MCS-P, CCPC, CCCA

The Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021 was enacted on December 27, 2020, with aspects of the No Surprises Act portion enforced on January 1, 2022. It resulted in providers nationwide scrambling to identify and implement the necessary changes. Unfortunately, even as the year progresses, providers are putting their practices at risk by ignoring the part of the rule that applies to them. The rule is complex – aspects of it are in a transition stage and portions are being challenged by medical associations. This does not mean that a provider can ignore the rules. Enforcement means penalty if the requirements are not followed. Unfortunately, presenters are providing incorrect information about the rule and making it more difficult for providers to fall into line with the requirements. We’ll help providers identify what portion of the law applies to them and immediately make changes to be compliant, provide real-time examples, and important forms to make the process compliant in the practice.


Parker Seminars Dallas 2022 – Routine Office Visit (ROV) Documentation is Often Far from Routine / Documentation, Coding and Billing of Therapy and Exercise Services / Regulations and Risk Management Associated with Maintenance Care

Saturday, October 1st - Saturday, October 1st 2022 8:00 am - 5:00 pm Parker University Campus
2540 Walnut Hl Ln, Dallas, TX
RSVP Save to Calendar

Routine Office Visit (ROV) Documentation is Often Far from Routine - 8:00-10:00 AM
Often, providers forget that the ROV within “episodic care” must have a minimum set of targeted “updated” (comparative) subjective data components from the previous or initial visit, when applicable.
Documentation, Coding and Billing of Therapy and Exercise Services - 1:30-3:30 PM
It is widely accepted that most conditions that respond favorably to chiropractic care might get better results in less time when therapeutic modalities and procedures are utilized in the treatment plan.
Regulations and Risk Management Associated with Maintenance Care - 4:00-5:00 PM
Never has it been more important to understand the difference between clinically appropriate care and medically necessary care.
