Description

This course contains the most up to date and relevant tools for clinical documentation in physical therapy for survival in today’s health care environment. The course includes the text entitled Physical Therapy Documentation: From Examination to Outcome (2nd ed) by Mia Erickson, PT, Ralph Utzman, PT, and Rebecca McKnight, PT, copyright 2014. This course not only provides the basics for documentation, but most importantly benefits more seasoned therapists who have been in the field, because of its integration of evidence based practice into documentation. New clinicians as well as experienced clinicians will benefit from the information on improving documentation quality in the areas of skilled care and medical necessity. Practice problems (case studies) are included that range from simple to complex within varied practice settings. This is a must course for ALL PTs and PTAs who need to update their documentation skills in order to comply with current Medicare and other insurance reimbursement rules.-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------***COURSE OBJECTIVES***At the completion of this course, the physical therapy clinician will be able to: 1.
