Prepare a clinical workflow to optimize time management, increase clinical efficiency and conserve cognitive energy.
Identify the updated 2021 Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) outpatient documentation guidelines and how these can facilitate high-yield, clinically relevant patient encounters and minimize superfluous documentation.
Utilize the electronic medical record to decrease time spent on documentation and other non-clinical tasks.
Improve the overall burden of work by automating repetitive tasks, delegating to ancillary staff, and eliminating low-yield duties.
This course will review various ways to increase clinic-based efficiency. We will focus on: optimizing electronic medical record utilization, utilizing clinic staff efficiently, and reviewing the basics of clinic based billing and coding. These strategies, in turn, should improve patient care and also decrease physician and advanced practice provider burnout.
