Failure to properly document a patient encounter can lead to significant liability issues for healthcare providers and is one of the most common allegations seen in medical malpractice claims. Proper documentation will not only protect you from a potential claim but will also improve the physician-patient relationship and enhance reimbursement!
Join MLMIC and MSSNY on March 30, 2023, for a presentation entitled “Documentation Fundamentals: Strategies to Avoid Malpractice Claims and Improve The Physician-Patient Relationship.” Deanna Mirro Altmann, Risk Management Consultant with MLMIC Insurance Company will review the fundamentals and common liability issues associated with documentation in the medical record, discuss the impact of the 21st Century Cures Act and offer strategies to help improve the quality of patient care documentation, as well as reduce potential liability exposures to physicians and their organization. At the end of this presentation attendees should be able to:
- identify the fundamental aspects of appropriate medical record documentation;
- discuss how documentation can impact medical malpractice litigation;
- understand how the 21st Cures Act impacts the physician-patient relationship; and
