Join Amy Sear for a useful and practical webinar on good quality medical records.

The advantages of good documentation are many, including that it actually makes our work easier. But the most important reasons for good records are the many legal, insurance reimbursement and risk management ones. More and more Florida acupuncturists are encountering problems because of poor or inadequate medical records. This includes trouble with malpractice litigation, insurance reimbursement, and even getting into disciplinary (license) trouble with the Board of Acupuncture.

Too often we are left to make up our own system and with very little training or specifics. FSOMA has asked me to do this webinar to provide guidance and structure as a tool to help its members.

This webinar will provide:

1. The reasons to have medical records, in the first place, which also drives content under each clinical situation.
2. Requirements here in the state of Florida for the content of medical records in acupuncture practice.
3. What makes up good medical records/documentation
4. “Quality versus quantity”. How to improve the quality and clarity of notes. It is not necessarily about more content.
5. Technology tools to make better notes with less work.

The information is appropriate for anyone in any size or type of practice
