The roots of our Comprehensive CDI originate from our inpatient offering going back to the early 1990s. Our inpatient offering has continued to evolve over the past 25 years not only to address reimbursement objectives but also to use a clinically based approach that helps clients improve quality scores and compliance.
We developed a CDI solution that addresses documentation, coding, and charge capture for Outpatient Facilities’ services. In addition, we have a Professional Fee CDI solution that helps health systems capture opportunities with both fee-for-service and risk-based contracts. Regardless of the site of care in the health system and the related coding roles, we can help our clients with documentation, coding, and charging so that they get credit for the acuity of their patients and realize accurate reimbursement and quality scores.
