Healthcare Documentation Today: Challenges and Opportunities for AHDI and Its Professionals (or, What Would Buddy Do?) - Available
November 6, 2014 12:00PM- November 6, 2014 01:00PM

Title: Healthcare Documentation Today: Challenges and Opportunities for AHDI and Its Professionals (or, What Would Buddy Do?)

Presenter: Susan Dooley, MHA, CMT, AHDI-F

Date: November 6

Time: 12 PM Pacific/3 PM Eastern

CEC Given: 1 ML


You think things change rapidly in the way that we give medical care to patients in the United States? Well, take that, multiply by infinity, and you have the changes in the way the business of healthcare is run. Our own industry of healthcare documentation is a microcosm of that system, and each of us can relate numerous incidents of change that we have witnessed over our careers. In this presentation, we will look at the state of the healthcare and healthcare documentation industries today from the standpoint of health administration and policy as well as business and reimbursement factors. It’s impossible to fully understand the state of healthcare today without reviewing the factors that brought us to this point, so we will discuss this as well. Finally, we will consider the challenges and opportunities ahead for professionals in healthcare documentation, as well as for consumers of healthcare in general.
