Robert, a listener of Talk Ten Tuesdays, reported during last Tuesday’s broadcast that in reviewing his electronic medical record (EMR) the entire physical exam was counterfeit – no exam was performed.

So, in response to last Tuesday’s fascinating case about this documented, but unperformed physical examination, coding and compliance expert, Sally Streiber, president of Practical Coding Solutions, LLC, will discuss how the EMR and templating can be a friend or a foe. She will detail the approach to determining whether the incident was accidental or intentional, and what actions must be taken.

Other segments to be featured on the broadcast include:

  • Dateline Washington: Leslie Krigstein, vice president of congressional affairs for the College of Health Information Management Executives (CHIME), will report on the latest healthcare news coming out of Washington, D.C.

  • News Desk: Lorraine M. Martínez with Inmediata, a healthcare billing and reimbursement company operating in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, is scheduled to provide listeners with a live update from San Juan, Puerto Rico on how hospitals there are dealing with aftermath of Hurricane Maria.
