AAHIM | Your Data is Your Voice: Lessons in Clinical Documentation Improvement

Industry-wide healthcare reforms are seeking to change care delivery and payment through the use of data.


Industry-wide healthcare reforms are seeking to change care delivery and payment through the use of data. Moreover, traditional methods of reimbursement are being abandoned. Recent legislative and policy-making has fast-tracked the shift of healthcare payment to measurable value and quality outcomes. Now more than ever, the data you produce will drive your economic future. This session will explore five best practices to chart a strategic path through data-driven clinical documentation improvement, cultural changes and technologies in a new healthcare landscape.


By the end of the presentation, attendees will be able to:

  1. Identify transformations coming your way as a result of industry changes.
  2. Describe the best practices to update and strengthen operations under emerging care delivery and population-based payment (PBP) models.
  3. Implement changes in improved data capture that aligns with essential documentation within the primary care group practice and among organizational leaders including coding staff.
