Chapter Meeting
Challenges and Benefits of a Clinical Documentation Improvement Program

Health care organizations may encounter financial or compliance risk if they fail to recognize the importance of documentation content and processes.  Many decisions, both internal and external, rely on the accuracy, comprehensiveness, and timliness of clinical documentation.  With ICD-10 implementation nearing, coders see the increased need for complete and detailed documentation.  In addition, many other programs are dependent on quality documentation such as meaningful use, PQRS, RAC reviews, etc.  This informative presentation will provide an overview of a working clinical documentation improvement program at UW Hospital & Clinics.
