New E/M Guidelines: How organizations are moving forward successfully - Webinar Recording

In the final webinar of our three-part E/M coding series with the American Medical Association (AMA), panelists shared the progress they’re witnessing as organizations continue to transition to the new E/M guidelines. They discussed areas of success, offered advice for working through some of the challenges, and reinforced training and auditing concepts to support ongoing knowledge transfer throughout your organization. 

Over the past several years, the AMA and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) worked together to achieve these changes, resulting in the most significant updates to E/M office documentation in over 25 years. The modified approach, which rolled out on Jan. 1, 2021, aims to reduce the administrative burden for clinicians and healthcare providers and realign focus on what’s needed for quality patient care.  

EM Transition Webinar_1200x628_recordingNordic’s Chief Medical Officer Craig Joseph, MD and Manager for Performance Improvement Lori Parrish joined Barbara Levy, MDco-chair of the AMA’s CPT®/RUC E/M Workgroup, to offer their insights into: 

  • The guiding principles of why these changes were made 
  • What we’ve learned so far

  • Concrete steps to take to maximize the benefits of the updated guidelines
