CMS is asking for your input! We all have ideas on how we would change healthcare documentation requirements and get rid of the burdensome requirements and regulations if it were up to us, so go ahead, speak up! The Patients over Paperwork Initiative is aimed at significantly cutting the “Red Tape” from clinicians’ requirements. If you had a say in changing reporting and documentation requirements, what would you do?
- What about coding? Should we change everything to PCS? One code set? That would be too easy…
- Is there perhaps an easier way to improve policies and requirements with Medicare and Medicaid?
- What do you think about the reform with E/M coding requirements?
- How many hours are spent in documentation and coding?
If you have suggestions, speak up. Comments must be submitted by August 12, 2019.
