Bridging the Gap Between Coding and CDI

Kristi Fahy, RHIA

The shift to value-based reimbursement methodologies means that both clinical documentation improvement (CDI) and coding accuracy are more important than ever before. These specialties are necessary for improving patient outcomes, ensuring continuity of care, and for attaining appropriate reimbursement. It’s important that coding and CDI teams utilize a collaborative approach to maximize the outcomes of each program. Computer-assisted coding (CAC) technologies can help to bridge the gap between the teams. During the presentation, we will discuss how CAC fuses coding and CDI through workflow configurations that help to improve communication and efficiency and, provide robust reporting that trends progress.
