Why is it essential to identify potential queries as soon as possible in the coding process?

Identifying potential queries early in the coding process is crucial because it prevents the unnecessary effort of revisiting and touching the record multiple times. Making key notations along the way helps in efficiently finding the supporting documentation needed for the queries, saving a tremendous amount of time and increasing productivity.

How will this course help me in identifying what needs to be queried?

This course will provide guidance on recognizing key words or documentation that signal a potential query opportunity. It will help coders know what might need to be clarified, such as diagnosis, procedure, POA, etc., allowing them to look for relevant information in the record documentation actively.

How will this course impact my overall coding productivity?

By implementing the strategies taught in this course, coders can reduce the time-consuming nature of writing queries and avoid the repetitive task of going through records. With an efficient approach to identifying potential queries and gathering clinical indicators, coders can enhance their overall productivity, accuracy, and job satisfaction.
