Implementing Clinical Documentation Improvement in the Outpatient Environment Webinar

Exploring Outpatient CDI: Key Objectives and Strategies

CDI is moving into the outpatient environment, but the needs and impacts are very different, from the typical inpatient CDI programs. Setting up a program that works within the flow of the providers to allow for buy-in and developing metrics that verify success are necessary to support the program. CDI should improve and support quality of the patient care and continuity of care. Developing the right team and the right communication path will strengthen the program.

Key Objectives:
• Identify the purpose of a CDI program
• Recognize the needs and impacts
• Increase buy-in from the providers
• Focus on insuring quality of patient care is critical
• Develop a team concept for effectiveness

Why is this topic important?
More and more services are performed in an outpatient setting, so traditional inpatient CDI does not always meet the needs of an organization. Also, as payment methodologies continue to change CDI can play a huge role in ensuring everything is coded as accurately as possible and that the integrity of the documentation supports the coding.

Who would benefit from this topic?
Coders, CDI professionals, Compliance, Risk Management, Billing
