Hello. There have been many changes in healthcare in general in the last year or so. CDI has always been focused on chart accuracy and providing proper documentation to support diagnosis that is in the medical record. I have noticed that because of the increase in financial pressures placed on healthcare, health institutions have a higher expectation of CDI reviews and how it affects reimbursement.
I would like to know if your institutions have implemented a change in focus of your CDI programs because of this.
