The American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) specialty conference about documentation for occupational therapists (OTs) will take place October 2-3 at the Hyatt Regency Schaumburg in Chicago.

During the conference, called “Effective Documentation: The Key to Payment & Articulating Our Distinct Value,” experts will teach strategies to help OTs write more effective and concise documentation demonstrating medical necessity for reimbursement, according to the AOTA website.

Session topics will include: “Write It Right: What Really Matters in Documentation,” “Medicare Part A Update” and “Medicare Part B Update,” “Early Intervention Documentation,” and “Demonstrating the Distinct Value of Occupational Therapy Through Documentation.”
