Service Provision Documentation in Early Intervention: NYC/NYS
Course Objectives, Outcomes & Other Relevant Information

Correct documentation of the NYC Early Intervention session note and progress is of critical importance, and is emphasized by the the New York City Quality Assurance Unit, which provides professional oversight. 

Excellent service provision is – to the reviewing eyes of an auditor – is only as good as the session & progress notes documenting that service. Increasingly, service providers are at risk for ‘red-flagging’ because of ‘problem’ documentation, despite their good to excellent level of professional service provision. This jeopardizes their professional standing in a unique pediatric home-care industry where the old adage “reputation is EVERYTHING” – runs true.

If you are an early intervention provider, come & learn best practices of session and progress note documentation, and to how to avoid the many ways your documentation may be ‘flagged’ for review. Learn what is expected of you to correctly complete a daily session treatment (service provision) note, or quarterly or semi-annual progress note! Avoid having to re-fix or re-write a session or progress note, by 'getting it done right the first time!

More and more early intervention therapists, educators, and social workers – service providers – are under ‘professional review’ by programmatic and fiscal auditors, IPRO, the Office of the Medicaid Inspector’s Office (OMIG) the Office of Professions, and in some unfortunate cases – the NYC Department of Investigations. In some instances, some have been arrested for fraud, and have served prison sentences in addition to losing their professional licensure. In some cases, their photographs and details of their fraud have been made very public.

In today’s climate of zero tolerance for fraud, every early intervention provider must take especial care to document in ways that are appropriate and correct – both programmatically, fiscally, and ethically. Unbeknownst to many early intervention providers the New York Early Intervention System (NYEIS) can track overlaps for given therapist who is working for different agencies.

Regard your good name as the richest jewel you can possibly be possessed of. By educating yourself through this course, you will become more aware of the pitfalls of poor documentation that may lead to increased scrutiny of your practice. Your allegiance to your own professional well-being, your reputation, and your financial security may be bettered by studying the contents of this critically essential course!

This primer is a MUST READ for all early intervention who service the professional needs of infants and toddlers in the NYC & New York State Early Intervention program!
