Clinical Documentation Improvement Programs have been around for years, now. After some research, however, I discovered that it has been around for much longer than many of you might think. (And I have the proof to show, on this week’s show!)

Anyway, there is a change in the air, and both our guest speakers this week have been pushing that change, as much as possible. The idea is to get CDI specialists to not fall into the prevalent trap of focusing too much on the reimbursement side – finding or supporting the highest paying DRG possible for a claim. While that is an important part of the whole process, it appears to have become, in many instances, the most important driver for the condition of the medical record. On this week’s show, then, we will go over how they think this can change and why it needs to change.
