What Is CDI and How Does It Impact You?

“CDI (Clinical Documentation Improvement) has been described as the process of improving healthcare records to ensure improved patient outcomes, data quality, and accurate reimbursement. Hospitals began CDI programs as a response to the advent of DRGs (Diagnosis Related Groups) as a form of reimbursement. Most physicians have experienced the request for supplementary documentation to support additional or more specific ICD codes to enhance hospital reimbursement and data collection.”
