ICD-10: Been There. Done That. Leading It.

Why CDI is crucial for outpatient and physician services

As volume shifts from inpatient to outpatient services at hospitals and clinics, attention to clinical documentation improvement (CDI) is more crucial than ever. Outpatient reimbursement is diverse with multiple APC payments from one claim. Charges come in from various hospital departments, such as radiology, lab, and emergency. The claim scrubbing process often happens reactively on the back end.

The bottom line. Without an efficient review process, the risk of denials can only increase. Yet, in a recent 3M survey of outpatient and physician services, only five percent had a CDI program in place. Join us January 27 at 12:00 CT to learn why an outpatient CDI program is essential and how to get started.

  1. I have trained many Provider’s. I don’t feel comfortable being a teacher for a room full of coders. Where does that comfort level come from?
