should be documented to the degree that it was actually performed.
This documentation should support the E & M code that is charged.
• Complete all charts within 72 hours of the encounter (unless waiting
on pathology or another test result that would affect diagnostic codes)
to allow for efficient patient billing.
• Should there ever be any concern over proper E & M documentation,
the practitioner will ask for the assistance of one of the supervising
physicians and/or certified coders that are on staff of IMPC.

documented and billed by utilizing the EMR.

team, it is expected of all employees to go “above and beyond” their
job description.
