2 2007 UBO/UBU Conference From Registration to Accounts Receivable 2 Objectives DoDI Definition of an APV Definition of an APU Documentation guidelines Coding accurately Exercises Summary Questions

3 2007 UBO/UBU Conference From Registration to Accounts Receivable 3 DoDI Dated 23 September 1996 Supersedes previous DoDI “Same Day Surgery” 21 July 1994 Re-issuance and purpose Applicability and scope Definitions of APV and APU Policy Responsibilities Procedures

4 2007 UBO/UBU Conference From Registration to Accounts Receivable 4 Definitions APV – Ambulatory Procedure Visit – Immediate (day of), pre-procedure, and immediate post procedure care – Usually requires less than 24 hours of care in the unit APU – Ambulatory Procedure Unit – A location within the MTF or a freestanding outpatient site – Must be equipped, staffed and designated for providing the intensive level of care required for APVs

5 2007 UBO/UBU Conference From Registration to Accounts Receivable 5 Documentation Guidelines To ensure that medical record documentation is accurate, the following principles should be followed – The medical record should be complete and legible – The documentation of each patient encounter should include: Reason for the encounter, relevant history, physical examination findings, and prior diagnostic test results Assessment, clinical impression, or diagnosis Medical plan of care Date and legible identity of the observer —Continued—

6 2007 UBO/UBU Conference From Registration to Accounts Receivable 6 Documentation Guidelines – If not documented, the rationale for ordering diagnostic and other ancillary services should be easily inferred – Past and present diagnoses should be accessible to the treating and/or consulting physician – Appropriate health risk factors should be identified – The patient's progress, response to and changes in treatment, and revision of diagnosis should be documented – The Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) and International Classification of Diseases, 9th Revision, Clinical Modification codes reported on the health insurance claim form (ICD-9-CM) or billing statement should be supported by the documentation in the medical record

9 2007 UBO/UBU Conference From Registration to Accounts Receivable 9 History: Patient is a 50 y/o man was evaluated for hematuria. A CT scan demonstrated a filling defect and possible lesion at the left ureteral pelvic junction. Description of Procedure: The patient was taken to the OR and after placement of adequate general anesthesia the patient was placed in the dorsal lithotomy position. The genitalia was prepped and draped in the usual sterile fashion. The urethra was cannulated with a cystoscope and this was passed under direct vision into the patient’s bladder. The patient was found to have both edema and probable left- sided bladder tumor extending into the posterior wall of the left bladder. Using an open-ended catheter, a left retrograde pyelogram was obtained demonstrating left ureterectasis and a left ureteral pelvic junction obstruction. A mm guide wire was then passed under fluoroscopic guidance to the left kidney. The ureter was dilated by balloon and using the flexible ureteroscope, the patient underwent ureteroscopy. The patient was found to have a small kink in the ureter at the left ureter pelvic junction, but no lesions were noted. The ureteroscope was removed and the patient’s bladder tumor (3 cm) was resected. The periphery of the tumor was then cauterized. The patient was taken to recovery in good condition.

11 2007 UBO/UBU Conference From Registration to Accounts Receivable 11 History: Colon Cancer Screening Description of Procedure: The patient was placed in a left lateral decubitus position. DRE was unremarkable. There was a 2 mm nodule in the median lobe of the prostate that felt benign. Sphincter tone was good. The colonoscope was passed into the rectum. Retroversion revealed no abnormalities. The rectal mucosa appeared normal and preparation was excellent. There was a diminutive polyp in the mid rectum. This was removed with hot biopsy forceps. The colonoscope was then advanced past the hepatic flexure where a 6 mm sessile polyp was found. This was removed by snare technique. The scope was advanced to the terminal ileum, no other abnormalities were seen. The scope was withdrawn and air removed from the colon. The patient tolerated the procedure well.

13 2007 UBO/UBU Conference From Registration to Accounts Receivable 13 History: This 23 year-old male presents with a twisting knee injury consistent with medial meniscus tear of the right knee. Confirmed by MRI. Description of Procedure: The patient is brought to the OR and placed under general anesthetic. The right leg was prepped and draped sterilely then exsanguinated. The tourniquet was inflated to 350 mmHg for a total tourniquet time of 30 minutes. The trocar was placed superior medially in the knee. Anteromedial and anterolateral stab wounds were then made. The arthroscope was placed in the anterolateral portal and connected to the video arthroscope. The arthroscope was then placed through the suprapatellar pouch under the patella, where there were some grade 2 chondromalacia changes in the mid-portion of the patella. A chondroplasty was performed. The arthroscope was then placed on the medial femoral condyle into the medial compartment where some grade 2 and areas of grade 3 chondromalacia changes were noted. In addition there was a small flap tear, as well as some tearing of the posterior horn of the medial meniscus. Using a combination of basket forceps and full rays re-sector, a partial medial menisectomy was performed. In addition, chondroplasty was performed of the medial femoral condyle. The arthroscope was then placed on the intracondylar notch of the anterior cruciate ligament. It was probed, stressed and no abnormality was found. The scope was then placed in the lateral compartment where the lateral femoral condyle and lateral tibial plateau were normal. The lateral meniscus was normal. The knee was then fully irrigated, the arthroscope was removed as was the cannula that was placed superior medially in the knee. The portals were closed with 3-0 nylon sutures. The patient tolerated the procedure well. Code Assignment: Coding Example
