With the prevalence of the electronic health record (EHR), the process of prescribing medication has changed in many ways. Some of the changes have been very beneficial, but others have increased risks. The use of drop-down menus requires the prescriber to be precise in choosing the correct medication and dose. Medical malpractice claims have also revealed situations involving bypassing system alerts, look-alike/sound-alike drugs, prescribing in handoffs of care, and office prescribing practices. These situations and others have been implicated in adverse events related to EHR medication prescribing. Click here to view the bibliography.

"Preparing for the 2021 E/M Changes"
Presented by Kim Huey, MJ, CCS-P, PCS, CPC, CPCO, COC, CHC 

*CME credit may apply.
     2021 brings the most drastic changes in coding of office visits since the inception of the Evaluation and Management concept in 1992. For almost 30 years, office visits have been coded based on the three key components of history, examination and medical decision-making. Time was not a factor unless the visit was dominated by counseling. In 2021, visits will be coded based on either time or medical decision-making. This will require changes in documentation as well as coding. This change was prompted by CMS, but made by the American Medical Association to affect the very definition of the codes. This webinar is presented by Kim Huey, an independent coding and reimbursement consultant, providing audits, training, and oversight of professional coding.‚Äč
