This program teaches the principles of Rational Physician Coding and how to apply this systematic approach to E/M coding and documentation to the most common inpatient encounters. See how to calculate your medical decision-making first and then use this key component to select the highest ethical level of care every time for every patient. Then, using real-life clinical examples, we take you step-by-step through the process of documenting the history, exam and medical decision-making for multiple encounters.
