‐ Oct 4, 2021 12:15pm

Despite the continued research and education on malnutrition, there remain challenges in accurately diagnosing and documenting this diagnosis correctly for patient and financial reimbursement benefit. This webinar was chosen as a platform for providing success stories and strategies on how physicians, dietitians and clinical documentation specialists can collaborate together to diagnosis and document malnutrition appropriately. The faculty will present collaboratively by interacting with one another to address malnutrition and diagnosis and documentation strategies.

Learning Objectives:

  • Explain the importance of diagnosing and documenting malnutrition correctly and how it relates to a medical institution.
  • Expound on strategies utilized by the dietitian in relaying the malnutrition diagnosis to the physician, so that the diagnosis is documented in the patient’s chart.
  • Describe how the provider and documentation specialist can work together to ensure accurate, complete and appropriate coding/billing for the malnutrition diagnosis.
