Why establishing a baseline audit can be a good move for your practice

If a practice has never performed an E/M audit or any other type of audit used for gathering data, begin with a baseline audit to determine the level of risk. A baseline audit will help the practice map out its audit efforts and agenda for at least one year. It will also determine how often an auditor should reaudit certain providers.

A baseline audit will identify the following:

  • Control weaknesses in coding/billing system
  • The potential need for broad-based education
  • The need for provider documentation and billing practice improvements
