VBP, HAC, PSI… Oh My! The Pre-Bill Review Gives Focus to CDI

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Participants will understand the importance of the pre-bill review in relation to a clinical documentation improvement (CDI) program, coder, CDS, and physician education, but also its impact on the accuracy of payment with a proven ROI.  They will also understand the impact of a well-structured physician advisor program on the pre-bill process and the CDI program and will gain important information related to how the pre-bill process compliments specialized audits such as patient safety indicator, ROM, and SOI audits as well as ICD -10 audits.  The presentation will include actual case studies and metrics captured with demonstrable impact on quality metrics, CMI, and responsiveness of physicians to the CDI program.  By the end of the presentation, the participant will have an understanding of the importance of a customized study of their facility’s records to delivery concise specific education to physicians and the CDI team to effect change through a new infrastructure.

Session Objectives:

  • Understand that the quality of care is reflective of the quality of documentation and coding.
  • Understand the importance of the pre-bill review as the foundation for impacting change within a coding and documentation program.
  • Appreciate measurable results of the pre-bill review on the Clinical Documentation Program, physician education, quality metrics, and financial accuracy with reinforcement by a successful physician advisor program.
  • Take away key concepts and insights for development of a customized facility infrastructure.
