Our Inpatient CDI team focuses on increasing DRG accuracy rates, analyzing each record to ensure the DRG assignment is correct, including CCs or MCCs. In addition to ensuring the MS-DRG/APR DRG has the highest yet most appropriate value, our CDI specialists assess potential documentation opportunities in claim denial rates, patient population, SOI, and ROM.
We help with claim denials and meet health plan requirements, particularly in terms of risk adjustment documentation and reporting best practices. Our outpatient CDI team drives better reimbursement and incentive pay by ensuring diagnoses are supported and reported at the highest level of specificity, verifying optimal coding of the patient encounter, as reflected in documentation, identifying opportunities for specificity in physician documentation, and capturing HCCs and improving risk adjustment scores.
