Giving audit results to a provider is a daunting task.  Even for a seasoned auditor, looking at new ways to present information to a provider shows growth.  If the news isn’t all positive, there is an increased need to have tools in your pocket to help with the meeting.  For best results, you need to keep the provider engaged and not focusing on mistakes found and how they will defend themselves.  The conversation with the provider should be professional, focused and have positive, solution giving information for them.  Rather than focus on the negative of what was done wrong, focus on what was done correctly and how, potentially, with minor changes!

Having given audit results on hundreds of charts, as an experienced auditor, this webinar will offer tips for anyone working with providers in providing audit results or other educational events.  Every encounter with a provider is a chance to educate and build a trust that opens their ears and minds to what you are saying.  It’s all about the semantics of the conversation.
