% of Initial Reviews vs. % of Continued Stay Reviews

I would like to know what other CDI departments are striving for in the balance  % of initial reviews vs. % of continued stay reviews.  Should this be a 50-50 split?  Out of the total reviews performed in one month what should the % of these 2 types of reviews be? 


  • We  have a goal of 10 and 10 for the first 2 years and then increases to 12-15 of each per day after that.
  • we strive for 10 new cases/day with whatever is needed in follow up - i.e. query response, looking for additional cc/mcc/procedure that may change the DRG etc..  The review process will dictate the number of continued stay reviews.    Our primary goal is to touch as many records as possible with a CDI review to reach a certain % overall of records reviewed in the facility
  • Do each of you have a Coverage Rate Goal?
