As ambulatory care grows and value-based payment expands across the care continuum, so does CMS and payer scrutiny of professional provider services. To improve risk adjustment scores, quality and financial outcomes, practice managers are looking to eliminate deficiencies in documentation, coding and billing. But outpatient Clinical Documentation Improvement (CDI) is more complex to implement than inpatient, with different coding requirements and payment methodologies, as well as higher patient volumes and shorter encounter times. In this session, practice managers will hear how one organization, planned a CDI initiative for value based and risk adjusted payment methodologies. Practice managers will learn the specific ways they can tailor that model within their own physician practices to gather tangible results including risk scores, quality data outcomes, and revenue impact will be discussed.
This session will provide you with the knowledge to:
- Identify regulatory mandates, clinical documentation requirements and reimbursement guidelines for outpatient practices
- Detail the case study organization's implementation for outpatient Clinical Documentation Improvement
- Transfer sussessful CDI program processes and strategies to your physician practice
