Hello – Welcome back to the field of HIM.
You should develop a delinquency policy which outlines the various types of delinquencies – for example the Op note within 24 hours and chart completion within 30 days. Then each of the delinquencies are categorized, totaled and reported for administrative reports. This might include individual provider numbers and facility numbers as well.
The facility policy creates accountability for your providers, as well.
