MSHIMA | Is Your CDI Program an Asset or a Liability – Measuring Real Performance

Join Glenn Krauss and Dr. Keith Stokes to learn if your CDI program is an asset or a liability.

Live & Recorded Virtual Event

Overview

Hospital finances are feeling the pinch. Shrinking reimbursements, rising costs, and claim denials are forming a perfect storm. Payers are tightening their belts, scrutinizing procedures and demanding meticulous documentation. This, coupled with inflationary pressures and a staffing crunch, is squeezing hospital budgets, forcing some to consider service cuts, layoffs, or even bankruptcy.

However, there is a lifeline! Join Glenn Krauss and Dr. Keith Stokes to learn how to use your CDI Program as an asset.

Some key takeaways from the session:

  • Learn why denials are becoming more pervasive and more difficult to overturn and affect payment
  • Identify inherent weaknesses and shortcomings of present-day CDI programs that contribute to unnecessary self-inflicted denials
  • Learn the key components of a CDI program to implement to drive operational performance with alleviation of medical necessity and clinical validation denials, increasing sustainable net patient revenue
  • Understand why spending more monies, hiring more CDI staff, and investing in more CDI software is not the answer to addressing ongoing payer denials
  • Gather the knowledge and depth of understanding in best practice standards and principles of CDI programs to hold CDI leadership accountable for rightsizing and transforming CDI into a role-based operation that promotes and focuses upon proactive preemptive denials avoidance documentation
