Medical Coding Review & Clinical Documentation Improvement (CDI)

Hospitals & Medical Practices
The physician, the hospital, and everyone else involved in the healthcare chain records, communicates and arrive, at a consensus on the patient's necessary care based on accurate medical codes.

A single wrong medical code can have a tremendous impact on your reimbursement and revenue cycle. That is why it is crucial to stay compliant with the current coding guidelines.

The current state of medical coding: the Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates medical coding jobs will increase 13% from 2016–2026 with an additional 27,800 new medical coding jobs expected by 2026.

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
Developing more thorough, accurate procedure notes
