Session Description

As healthcare organizations work with ICD-10, they are also adopting and adapting to new technologies and workflows for documentation capture. In this session, the presenters will use examples of common issues discovered by CDISs when evaluating documentation for ICD-10. They will suggest how to enlist HDSs to determine how documentation capture tools and processes can be improved to resolve each scenario. Utilizing both CDISs and HDSs, organizations can build a strong documentation quality improvement cycle in which common CDI queries can be reduced or eliminated over time.

 

Learning Objectives:

1. Describe the roles and goals of both healthcare documentation specialists (HDSs) and clinical

documentation improvement specialists (CDISs) and how they fit into the documentation capture workflow within healthcare organizations.

2. Highlight common documentation issues discovered by CDISs.

3. Describe various documentation capture scenarios that may contribute to poor content quality.

4. Illustrate how common documentation issues can be addressed by HDSs through collaboration with CDISs.
