Coding, Classification & Reimbursement

1.  Physician Advisor

Posted 14 days ago
​We are developing a policy for escalating a documentation issue to a physician advisor.  These issues could be related to coding, CDI or compliance.  Does anyone have a similar policy that would be willing share specifically related to who is responsible for completing the addendum to the medical record - the attending physician or physician advisor.  Do you have a job description for your physician advisor you would share.  You can e-mail to me at julie.morrison@reidhealth .org.   Thank you

​I would also be interested in the physician advisor job description.  If anyone wants to share it would be appreciated!

​The AHIMA CDI Toolkit also contains a sample job description for physician advisors.
