We evaluate, improve, and monitor CDI, so you don’t have to.
Thorough, accurate clinical documentation is critical for many reasons: to support care decisions during and after a patient encounter, to reflect the severity of illness and risk of mortality for a patient population, and to drive accurate reimbursement. And as the bulk of care delivery shifts to the outpatient setting, proactively managing patient authorization and accurate documentation is more critical than ever.
