E&M: The Good. The Bad and the Ugly
COVID-19 is a disruptor of giant proportions. Case in point: The lead story for tomorrow’s Talk-Ten-Tuesdays was the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, featuring Dr. John Foggle, who has spent the last three months working on the front lines in an urban, academic medical emergency department, treating COVID patients. Dr. Foggle had to cancel because he was asked to lecture on the deadly virus at Walter Reed National Medical Center.
So, given the attention being given to the coronavirus, it’s not surprising that evaluation and management (E&M) guideline changes for 2021 could be overlooked. That’s why we asked Shannon DeConda to share additional insight on these changes taking place in four short months.
The live broadcast will also feature these other segments:
