If Data Could Talk, What Would It Say?

AHIMA23 is more than an event, it’s where health information comes to life.

As a result, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services issues special provisions for telehealth during the pandemic, but it did not address the importance of documentation. This article offers telehealth documentation best practices to protect against such issues as denial of payment for services build and negative impacts on patient care.
