Clinical Documentation Improvement
What is Clinical Documentation Improvement?
Clinical documentation improvement focuses on the overall quality of care in healthcare organizations. CDI programs play a vital role for patient care by reporting diagnoses and procedures, sharing data with caregivers and boosting claims processing. Hospitals with effective CDI programs ensure that documentation reflects severity of illness and complexity of care. The result? Improved coding specificity, better case mix index (CMI) and enhanced reimbursement.
