Avoiding audits, compliance planning and MACRA super users


Cathie Biga, RN, MSN, discusses the importance of pre-planning for physician practices to avoid an audit. Having a full compliance plan for coding and documentation audits helps with appropriateness criteria, electronic medical record standards and making sure billing matches up with documentation. She also recommends that practices have at least one person who understands the MACRA legislation and shares the information with the entire group.
