Auditing of CDIS

Does anyone have a company that comes in and audits your CDIS team?  If so what company do you have do this?   We are having a lot of mismatches I want to get to the bottom of the problem and get this rectified as soon as possible.  Thank you in advance for your assistance. 


  • We do not use a company for CDI audits, but I try to go through the DRG mismatches and look at the ones caused by coding guidelines, etc.. there's nothing you can do about subsequent documentation or op note available after CDI review but the ones based on guidelines and coding clinics, etc.. are ones that you can tailor education for the CDI's.


  • In our department,  we rectify our mismatches weekly per CDIS. It's a good learning experiencefor CDIS and coder. 
  • How do you preform CDIS audits? Concurrently or retrospective? Do you use scoring?

    Thanks, Wendy
