Are your patients being placed properly within the healthcare continuum? Clinical documentation improvement (CDI) plays a vital role from the moment the patient enters a hospital emergency room.
The question of when a patient should be admitted to a hospital is, and always has been, a matter of medical judgment by physicians. CDI can help secure clear and concise documentation to support the physician’s medical judgment in the medical record.
This webinar, held October 14, will discuss the ever-changing two-midnight rule, physician documentation necessary to support inpatient admissions and explore how CDI can help secure complete and accurate documentation of diagnoses, severity and risk for patients.
As front-line stewards of health information, CDI/HIM professionals can help ensure that the health of a population is accurately reflected and also help reduce overall cost across the continuum of care. Hierarchical Condition Codes (HCCs) play a key role and it’s crucial to understand them.
This webinar offers an in-depth look at HCCs, covering how coding and CDI effect HCCs, financial impact, comparison to CRGs, the connection between risk stratification and documentation/coding guidelines, and how HCCs are used today in population health management and value based purchasing.
With the advent of value-based purchasing, it’s time for a close look at the key patient safety indicators (PSIs) with the most impact on hospital reimbursement and quality scores. Not all PSIs are weighted equally. Are you ready to address the top PSIs?
The first in a two-part series, this webinar on Wednesday, August 19, will focus on PSI 3 (pressure ulcer rate), PSI 9 (Perioperative Hemorrhage or Hematoma Rate) and PSI 11 (Postoperative Respiratory Rate). A subsequent webinar will focus on PSI 12, 13, and 15.
How are you mapping your journey from volume to value-based care? In this recorded webinar, you can examine a multi-step process to value-based care that includes evaluating value metrics. Learn how this approach can simplify your transition and help you track provider performance.
In a world of value-based purchasing and new state-based quality measures, you need to understand how hospital-acquired complications (HACs) and potentially preventable complications (PPCs) could prove to be game-changers for your organization.
In this webinar you will learn strategies that can take you from reactive to proactive when it comes to accurate capture of HAC rates and PPCs—which can then help you protect your organization.
You’ve followed countless ICD-10-ready checklists and read even more playbooks—and now you’re ready to act. As you get closer to October 1, do you know what to focus on?
