TMS Documentation: Expert Perspectives

The CTMSS Insurance Committee presents: "TMS Documentation: Expert Perspectives". In this panel discussion, we will discuss the range of approaches when it comes to documenting TMS sessions. We will also explore how the documentation serves multiple purposes for different audiences: clinical and administrative staff, patients, payers, and the court.

At the end of this presentation, participants will be able to:

  1. describe the core elements of a TMS procedure note in order to adequately convey clinical information to others involved in the care of a patient.
  2. understand the range of approaches to documentation of TMS sessions and the benefits and limitations of each approach.
  3. develop an approach to documentation of TMS sessions for your practice that meets the expectations of relevant insurance plans and malpractice carriers.

This Grand Rounds Webinar will highly encourage audience participation!
