• Maximizing CDI opportunities in community hospitals

    Community hospitals are increasingly creating clinical documentation integrity (CDI) programs to address documentation gaps and deficiencies, and improve financial and quality outcomes. The challenge is that community hospital CDI programs are typically understaffed, with inefficient manual workflows that only touch a fraction of charts and miss significant opportunity. Queries are often retrospective, causing additional burden and rework for physicians. Now, AI and automation – traditionally only accessible to large hospitals and health systems – are changing the game for community hospital CDI teams.

    Join us to hear how community HIS leaders use this technology to address their unique needs by improving outcomes such as case mix index and associated reimbursement, streamlining workflows between clinicians and CDI staff, and dramatically increasing CDI productivity. You’ll also learn the five strategies for successful adoption of this technology in community hospitals.
