The operative report is the first line of defense for the coding and reimbursement of a procedure or surgery.  Comprehensive operative report documentation can make the difference between an organization receiving timely payment or fighting with insurance companies for reimbursement they may or may not receive due to documentation deficiencies.  Every operative report consists of the following components: heading, history/indications for surgery, the body of the report, and findings and follow-up required for the patient.  In this webinar, expert speaker Toni Elhoms will discuss the key components of the operative report, strategies for successfully dissecting the operative report, applicable billing rules, auditing protocols, and review practical examples.
