Clinical Documentation Improvement Program
Clinical documentation is at the core of every patient encounter. In order to be meaningful, it must always be accurate, timely, and reflect the scope of services provided.Successful clinical documentation improvement (CDI) programs facilitate the accurate representation of a patient’s clinical status, which translates into coded data. Coded data is then translated into quality reporting, physician report cards, reimbursement, public health data, and disease tracking and trending.
The convergence of clinical documentation and coding processes is vital to a healthy revenue cycle, and more important, to a healthy patient. To that end, CDI has a direct impact on patient care by providing information to all members of the care team, as well as those downstream who may be treating the patient at a later date.A CDI program involves a myriad of people, processes, and technology that must all work in sync to ensure success. Organizations need a well-rounded individual who can effectively articulate all the pieces, including documentation requirements, code assignment, coding guidelines, and quality reporting
