Physicians who provide E/M services must document the necessary clinical information to support their medical decision-making. This is where CDI specialists play an important role, and The Documentation Improvement Guide to Physician E/M by Glenn Krauss, RHIA, BBA, CCS, CCS-P, CPUR, CCDS, C-CDI can help. This reference guide helps CDI specialists explain to physicians how complete and accurate documentation benefits their E/M payments, prevents medical necessity denials, and provides the information they need to document correctly.

This handbook offers the perfect portable reference guide for CDI specialists to educate physicians about E/M documentation. Provided in packs of 10, CDI specialists can distribute copies to physicians during documentation improvement education sessions or in response to physician questions and requests for additional information.
This reference guide will help CDI specialists:
  • Better understand the complex guidelines that affect physician payment for E/M services
  • Explain the importance of documentation to physicians beyond hospital reimbursement
  • Clarify the purpose of queries and how responding to them benefits physicians’ payments and public profiles
  • Encourage physicians to provide adequate documentation that will reduce the number of denials for lack of documented medical necessity
  • Access a comprehensive list of additional online resources to further aid them in their important role
