What Does the Final Radiology Report Support?
Kristen Bickel Sliwinski, CCA, RCC

Charge capture in radiology is challenging. Departmental charges may be submitted before the final interpretation is authenticated. However, as the final report supports both the facility and provider charges it is important to confirm that it clearly defends all charges submitted. The session will be presented in a hands-on format where attendees will review actual reports for common imaging studies and procedures to practice spotting areas that may delay reimbursement or deny appropriate charges considering the current coding conventions.

At the conclusion of the session, the attendee will be able to:
Define what areas of the final report may be used to support charges
Identify areas of opportunity for improved dictation within their own groups
Assess the value of implementing an internal QA/review process

Noon-1 p.m.

1-5 p.m.
Does the Interventional Procedure Note Support the Charges?
Jennifer Bash, RHIA, CPC, CIRCC, RCC

Each provider has their own style of describing the procedures performed.  Structured reporting isn’t required, but it is important to ensure that each component of the case is clearly identified.  The pre-procedure, intra-procedure, and post-procedure imaging summarized in a paragraph called “Findings” may not support the charges expected. The session will be presented in a hands-on format where attendees will review actual reports for common interventional radiology studies to practice spotting areas that may delay reimbursement or deny appropriate charges considering the current coding conventions.

At the conclusion of the session, the attendee will be able to:
Define key components for procedures.
Identify areas of opportunity for improved dictation within their own groups.
Assess the value of implementing an internal QA/review process
