One topic that continues to be requested is the powerful webcast by Dr. Erica Remer "How to Recognize Respiratory Failure and Prevent Denials." So, we're bringing it back by popular demand for an encore presentation. And for good reason: the information is useful to identify respiratory failure and improve documentation and to fight denials, according to attendees. They also told us that the knowledge shared by Dr. Remer was excellent, and in particular, so was the explanation of respiratory failure. And this is important because, so often, diagnosing respiratory failure is a challenge for some providers who don't make the diagnosis when it is presented, or identify everything as respiratory failure when it is not, thereby setting up the perfect scenario for clinical validation denials. Attendees also lauded Dr. Remer for the examples she provided of physician queries and clinical validation denials. Others said that Dr. Remer's examples of accurate documentation help to demonstrate the severity of illness (SOI).
Why This is Relevant:
Respiratory failure indicates severe pathology and is life-threatening. Providers either don't make the diagnosis when it is present or call everything respiratory failure and set up their institutions for clinical validation denials. As an attendee, you will be able to recognize respiratory failure and will be able to compose compliant queries and prevent denials.
From this exclusive ICD10monitor encore webcast, led by Dr. Erica Remer, you will be empowered to…
- Recognize clinical indicators for respiratory failure
- Distinguish between respiratory failure and other conditions, like respiratory distress and hypoxia
- Compose compliant traditional and clinical validation queries regarding respiratory failure
- Understand postoperative respiratory failure
