Clinical Documentation Improvement
Clinical documentation forms an integral part of every encounter your organization and personnel have with the patients you serve. Through consistent recordkeeping that’s both timely and accurate, the status of patients, the progression of their treatments and other actions taken to enable their recovery can be translated into appropriate medical coding.
Of course, the accuracy of your facility’s medical coding has a significant impact on the tracking of your patient care and the reimbursements you subsequently receive. That’s why successful clinical documentation improvement — or CDI — forms such a crucial intersection of clinical practices, documentation processes and coding procedures.
It’s also why any successful CDI program must include a wide selection of the professionals and technologies involved in the primary and supporting roles associated with patient care. In addition, it has to provide the necessary training to ensure that all components work together in an effective manner that puts both patient treatment and the financial well-being of your organization front and center.
