Please review the assignment instructions below, and each of the deliverables:
Scenario: You are the new HIM Director for Community Healthcare which includes an 1) acute care hospital, an 2) attached clinic and an 3) attached long term health facility. After several weeks on the job you realize that the documentation guidelines are outdated and it appears they have not been updated for nearly 10 years. After asking questions of the staff, it sounds like they are following current documentation standards, it is just that the written guidelines have not been brought up to date. You set out to update the written guidelines.
You first need to compile the guidelines set forth by the CMS since those are the regulatory bodies that monitor your organization.
