Many of you might remember my post about EMR documentation by exception. Today I came across the best description of the problem with this form of documentation:
When a consultant sends you an EMR note, you are reading his Billing Justification.
Seems like this post is appropriate for President’s Day. Imagine the founding fathers wrote the constitution or bill of rights in order to justify their billing. We’d have 100 amendments, but only 10 of them that other people needed to read. Luckily our founding fathers had the good sense to only pen what was needed. Maybe we should take a lesson from these amazing men.
