Improving CDI Programs and Alternative Methods and Solutions for Documenting a Clinical Encounter

Improve your CDI program and learn how to properly document clinical encounters to ensure compliance and accuracy.

The electronic health record has negatively impacted and degraded the quality of the medical record from a communication of patient care perspective. Hospitals and health systems have taken the root of heavily investing in clinical documentation improvement initiatives with the outcome goal of improving revenue through case-mix increases. A concomitant improvement in the quality and completeness of physician documentation has not been measurably achieved through current day approaches to CDI. This highly informative topic will be outlining and sharing how to capitalize upon the opportunity to harness the capabilities of current CDI programs to embrace process improvement in engaging physicians and the entire care team in a nonsiloed approach to achieving clinical documentation excellence. You will be able to define best practice standards and principles of documentation that best communicates patient care, applying these same standards and principles into daily chart reviews while addressing insufficiencies in documentation through a collaborative constituency approach working with physicians. Resources will be provided which are designed to be utilized as a how to roadmap for transformation of current CDI programs from reactive to proactive, driving achievement of clinical documentation excellence with optimal reimbursement while reducing medical necessity and clinical validation denials as well as financial and compliance exposure.
