Clinical Documentation Improvement (CDI) built on top of industry-leading clinical NLP.

Automate Abstraction. Empower CDI Specialists.

EZDI Booth at ACDIS 2021

challenges

What’s bothering CDI teams at your facilities?

Real-time Audits

Manual, spread-sheet dependent processes and tracking of queries that can be cumbersome and lead to disparity across operations

Incomplete documentation

Incomplete or inaccurate documentation leading to denied claims or inaccurate reimbursements. This impacts the quality of care and hospital revenues.

Risk Adjustment

Unable to capture hierarchical condition categories (HCC) and risk adjustment factor (RAF)

suggestions

Improve discharge not final billed (DNFB) and case mix index (CMI) metrics

Take moonshots

Difficulty in measuring and improving productivity and financial impact

Clinical NLP

Struggling to improve physicians’ query response and acceptance rate

grouper

Communication gaps between CDI specialists (CDIS), coders and auditors.

Evaluation in detail

Establish the CDI program and set up ongoing processes to improve clinical documentation.

Solution

An advanced CDI software designed from the ground up to elevate document quality.

Concurrent CDI

Prioritize cases to be reviewed, consolidate clinical information, and identify physician query opportunities concurrently while the patient is admitted reducing AR and DNFB days.

Measure the CDI program success

Follow AHIMA and ACDIS guidelines and understand the impact of your CDI program with measurement of CMI, risk scoring, quality measures, productivity, and much more.

Seamless integration with your CDI program

CDI software that integrates into your existing workflow, automates the chart review process, identify and tracks key parameters such as query response and acceptance rate.

Technology

A technology-first approach to clinical content

An industry-leading NLP technology

With integrated NLP, semantic web & machine learning, the queries are automatically generated and sent to the CDI specialist for validation and approval before sending it to the Physician.

Automated data collection & prioritization

Streamlines and strengthen your CDI process by abstracting clinical data concurrently and analyzing the health records for conflicting, incomplete, or nonspecific provider documentation.

A better way to improve clinical documentation

An easier, better, and faster way to automate all your mundane tasks leveraging NLP with a complete audit trail for regulatory compliance reviews and the necessary framework for gap analysis.

Benefits

Coding Guidelines

An integrated physicians query workflow

After identifying an opportunity for a physician query, CDI software helps you send the query using a predefined template. The method for clarification can be electronic or printed.

It also helps you to keep track of all the queries and answers for further evaluation and audit. All queries are viewable to the coders, helping to eliminate repeated queries during coding, significantly decreasing your DNFC (Discharged Not Final Coded) value.

Machine Learning

Better outcomes

CDI software provides you with all the vital information necessary to identify and clarify missing, conflicting, or nonspecific physician documentation. It helps you to

  • assign accurate diagnostic and procedural coding,
  • build working DRGs/ DRG assignments,
  • The severity of Illness and expected Risk of Mortality, aimed at appropriate reimbursement

This approach improves the quality of care and drives better quality measures (and reimbursement) for the hospitals. As a result, you will be better prepared for the RAC audit.
