Clinical Documentation Improvement – What is it and Why is it so Important?
Clinical Documentation Improvement – CDI for short – is a crucial part of the healthcare compliance and coding world.
The compliance and coding worlds are filled with acronyms – and we’ve got another one for you: CDI. That stands for Clinical Documentation Improvement, and it’s a crucial piece of the healthcare puzzle.
We invited Joanne Spethman, a Coding, CDI, and HIM Consultant, to share insights from her 30+ year career in inpatient and professional coding, CDI and HCC auditing on our latest episode of Compliance Conversations.
Tune in to Joanne and CJ’s conversation to learn more about:
- Some of the biggest challenges with overlap between clinical and coding teams (and what to do about it)
- How to break down silos between coders and CDI professionals
- Career paths and opportunities for clinical staff to transition to a CDI role
