MSHIMA | Assessing the Performance of Your Clinical Documentation Improvement (CDI) Program: Discover the Real Impact on Your Bottom Line

Assessing the real performance of a CDI program using a “Role Based” approach to CDI is instrumental in evaluating the “Real” Return on Investment of any CDI program. This is the first step in identifying transformative processes CDI must embrace and incorporate into current CDI operatives to drive sustainable integrity in physician documentation in support of net patient revenue less prone to denials and costly financial takebacks.

Overview

Clinical Documentation Integrity Programs have become ingrained in most hospitals and health systems, designed, and intended to improve reimbursement through the physician query process. Physician queries are the hallmark and fundamentals of the CDI profession, becoming more predominant as CDI programs deploy advanced CDI software utilizing some form of Artificial Intelligence. Key Performance Indicators that are currently used to measure performance of CDI programs incorporate task-based CDI activities versus role-based approaches to physician documentation improvement/integrity. By focusing upon reimbursement-based outcomes versus true physician documentation process improvement, measurable meaningful sustainable physician documentation is not being achieved. In many instances, CDI programs are generating and contributing to costly self-inflicted payer denials. Assessing the real performance of a CDI program using a “Role Based” approach to CDI is instrumental in evaluating the “Real” Return on Investment of any CDI program. This is the first step in identifying transformative processes CDI must embrace and incorporate into current CDI operatives to drive sustainable integrity in physician documentation in support of net patient revenue less prone to denials and costly financial takebacks.
