Creating a state-of-the-art clinical documentation improvement (CDI) program isn’t just about boosting coding accuracy. It’s a key strategy in managing the transition from volume-based to value-based care, say healthcare leaders. That transition is a risky endeavor that is putting hospital and physician financial performance to the test. As hospitals participate in new care and business models aimed at improving value, leaders must ensure that their organizations are able to maintain reimbursement levels, effectively treat the chronically ill—especially in outpatient settings—and gather accurate data that will allow them to assess performance and segment their varying populations. While some organizations often believe they are leaving revenue on the table because of documentation and coding issues, CDI offers numerous opportunities for improving financial performance, finds a recent HealthLeaders Media survey of 149 healthcare executives at provider organizations.

Regulatory compliance is more than a series of rules to adhere to, and getting it right could save you time and money.
Historically, compliance has been regarded as a checklist of fixed requirements. But this reactive outlook risks being too short-sighted.

more compute resources than legacy applications.
Legacy systems are no longer capable of meeting the
present and future needs of the organization.
