IC42: Documentation for Complex Rehab Technology: The Ethical Dilemma

IC42 Documents

Documentation is critical for the provision of Complex Rehab Technology (CRT). Suppliers work with clinicians who have varying degrees of experience in seating and mobility. This course will discuss the roles of the supplier and the clinician in developing the required information for funding. Some situations require more guidance from the supplier to assist the clinician in medical justification for mobility and positioning devices. This presentation will offer effective ways to ensure that the client's needs are being met. Suppliers and clinicians must understand where the line is drawn and who writes the medical necessity.
