JOIN OUR FREE WEBINAR: A PRACTICAL APPROACH TO OUTPATIENT CLINICAL DOCUMENTATION IMPROVEMENT

Wednesday, April 25, 2018 at 2 pm EDT

With Clinical Documentation Improvement (CDI) now firmly established within inpatient care, it’s time to turn our attention to an outpatient care CDI rollout. One solid advantage? Knowing—and learning from—inpatient CDI implementation challenges. In this webinar, you’ll gain an understanding of what to expect as CDI moves into the outpatient arena. You will receive one AHIMA CEU in Performance Improvement when you attend this webinar.*

Learn how to draw on the five basic components common to all CDI programs when implementing outpatient CDI.


Topics to be covered include:

  • How to leverage inpatient CDI similarities when building an outpatient CDI program
  • Understanding the metrics and reports that are valuable for monitoring and improving CDI programs
  • The value of the Risk Adjustment Factor in inpatient and outpatient CDI
  • The importance of selecting appropriate Key Performance Indicators for measuring documentation quality for both acute (inpatient) and chronic (outpatient) care settings
