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

This session will demonstrate the story of how one facility designed a comprehensive plan to educate providers based on structured dual coding exercises, audit samples of office-based physician’s medical records, and acute care records in order to assess for clinical documentation compliance and adequacy to apply ICD-10-CM/PCS codes.

  • Advantages to using a 1:1 approach to provider education.
  • Suggested model for introducing professional CDI staff to providers.
  • Tips for how to encourage physician interest in the project.
  • Use of supporting documentation and educational tools.
  • Suggested model for HIM coding, CDI staff, and professional coders to collaborate for education of providers.
  • Advantages of tracking metrics and utilizing a data visualization tool to provide transparency to Program and Executive sponsorship.
