Clinical Documentation Improvement (CDI)

Clinical Documentation Standardization                  Reduction in Claims Denials and Improved Coder Productivity                           Increased Quality Measures for Providers

In many hospitals today, care is still documented utilizing individual unit or clinician specific methods and preferences.

A range of terminology may be used to describe the care and new forms proliferate, creating redundancies, making trending and quality reporting difficult,

impeding smooth data flow into the EMR, and ultimately defeating the integrated capabilities of today’s leading advanced

clinical systems. This lack of standardization can be the case whether the health record is hardcopy or electronic.

The implementation of advanced clinical systems and electronic medical records provides the best opportunity to standardize documentation and

implement care planning models that utilize standardized language. This effort is vitally important to meet the intent of Meaningful Use criteria and to

provide more effective and satisfactory use of the electronic health record.

We provide expert Clinical Specialists who assist health care facilities to:

  • Assess current clinical documentation for terminology, compliance, duplication and reporting needs

  • Assess care planning models and identify a multi-disciplinary approach that will work best for your facility
  • Simplify clinician workflows that support adherence to standards of care
  • Design clinical systems to leverage information integration, automated reporting and data flow to the EMR
  • Streamline the build to improve ongoing IT support
  • Monitor and report on quality components for both pre and post implementation
