Vital Clinical Documentation for the CHC Provider
Ongoing webinar series
Clinical documentation is the core of effective and safe patient care. Coding within CHCs continues to be challenging for providers and coders. Our web-based program offers a step-by-step curriculum where participants will learn key components of coding patient history, physical exams and medical decision-making. Using real life clinical examples, participants will see that it’s not the quantity of documentation that matters–it’s the quality.
