Course description

Clinical Documentation Improvement (CDI) - The Basics Course

Strong clinical documentation leads to better patient outcomes and timely reimbursement. As the foundation of every medical record, its purpose is to tell the patient’s story. When documentation is vague, ambiguous, or missing, there are gaps in the patient’s information that may be critical to optimal outcomes. CDI introduction course will help you outline the best practices. Historically, clinical documentation has been focused on the hospital records. Many hospitals employ clinical documentation specialists who concurrently review the records and query the provider for unclear evidence of the patient’s status. The physician practice is now included in clinical documentation quality. Prior to this shift, the physician practice protocol has generally been reactive rather than proactive. In order to meet timely reimbursement and shift to value-based payment methodologies, it is critical to improve the documentation quality. Healthcare is rapidly changing, but you can stay in the game by taking a proactive approach to clinical documentation!
