Clinical Documentation Improvement (CDI)

Hospitals & Medical Practices
Hospitals and healthcare centers across the country are implementing clinical documentation improvement (CDI) programs. The main focus is on maximizing revenue and reducing medical coding and billing errors; healthcare facilities are enforcing changes to improve end-to-end patient care.

Starting a program in your healthcare practice needs to be thoroughly thought out and planned, but it doesn’t have to be overwhelming. Advancing documentation is essentially a good goal with down-stream gains of improved reimbursement and effective clinical data.

An effective Clinical Documentation Improvement (CDI) program can reduce denials and improve the appeals process using improved clinical documentation from a reimbursement perspective. Clinically, it results in a more helpful medical record and more specific patient information and data.

The capacity to collect and track data has emerged in more robust and expanded CDI programs. The impact of CDI today may be described as the completeness, consistency, organization, and accuracy of the medical record, reflecting the physician’s clinical judgment and medical decision making. The overarching purpose of a CDI program is to enhance clinical documentation, coding, and reimbursement.

Sunlit Cove Healthcare Consultants can assist you with the assessment, implementation, and maintenance of a CDI program that can have positive outcomes, including, but not limited to:

Standardizing care across teams
Reducing claim denials and increasing reimbursements
Managing procedure quality and bench-marking
Improving patient throughput and satisfaction
