    CMS to Host Session on Billing and Coding With Electronic Health Records

    CMS wants to help health care providers code their billing claims appropriately in this increasingly electronic environment. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) will host a presentation and "listening session" on May 3 in Woodlawn, Maryland, to discuss the impact of electronic health records (EHRs) on coding trends, the increase in code levels billed for some Medicare services, and developing standards for coding with EHRs.

    After a break from the presentations, invited speakers will discuss key issues such as the impact of EHRs on the quality of clinical care, provider efficiency, and coding challenges and opportunities facing various groups, including hospitals, clinicians, and other interested stakeholders.

    CMS provides a list of invited speakers and online registration at this link.
