THIS WEEK, we continue a discussion with Glenn Krauss, Sharon Easterling and Bill Malm, speaking to something we all feel quite deeply about – the use of CDI programs to boost revenue, instead of documentation in the medical record.

Remember Dr. Lawrence Weed?

“This record cannot be separated from the care of that patient.”

Anyway, we’ll talk again about where we’ve seen many CDI programs going, and why we suggest there needs to be a different approach.

SO… THIS week, our Panel will be discussing :

  • WHERE should your CDI program begin on the patient encounter path
  • WHERE should it stop – or does it ever stop
  • WHAT regulations should a CDI be well-versed in for Inpatient care
  • WHAT regulations should a CDI be well-versed in for Outpatient care
  • WHY does CDI usually start 24-48 hours after admission
  • HOW should CDI in the ER be different – or should it
  • WHAT are some examples of bad vs. good documentation that CDI could have caught and then taught a better way

So join us, share your own insights and bring your questions for us!
