Clinical Documentation

Fight Back RAC

The key to quality patient care and appropriate reimbursement is complete and specific clinical documentation. The translation of clinical documentation to coded data is never a simple task. Whether services are acute care, rehabilitation or psychiatry, most facilities have opportunities for documentation improvement.

Using a team based approach to facilitate improved documentation your staff can be trained concurrently to enhance existing efforts and coding through monitoring patient records for issues affecting reimbursement. By bringing possible issues up to a physician during the patient stay the need for HIM staff to query busy physicians after discharge would be reduced and the quality of record documentation can be improved, leading to improved care and more accurate reimbursement.
