Dissecting the OMS Operative Report - On Demand Access

The OMS operative report is the first line of defense for the coding and reimbursement of a procedure or surgery. Comprehensive operative report documentation can make the difference between an organization receiving timely payment or fighting with insurance companies for reimbursement it may not receive due to documentation deficiencies. Every operative report consists of the following components: heading, history/indications for surgery, body of the report, and findings and follow-up required for the patient. In this 90-minute webinar, participants will discuss the key components of the OMS operative report, strategies for successfully dissecting it, applicable OMS billing rules, auditing protocols and practical case studies on this topic.
