Sponsored by
Nuance

As budgets shrink, healthcare organizations are clamoring for more precise data to justify the cost of Clinical Documentation Improvement (CDI) programs, software, and physician time/effort. Current CDI ROI measurement challenges revolve around how to calculate incremental improvement for mature programs. Organizations need to shift their ROI methodology to measure the benefit provided by Computer-Assisted Physician Documentation (CAPD) for each encounter.

During this webinar on Tuesday, March 31st at 1 pm ET learn how to:

  • Make accurate outcomes a continuous, additive measure of benefit generated from in the moment advice
  • Engage multiple departmental stakeholders with actionable data

How AI Improves Documentation and Quality Care in Pediatric and Acute Care Settings

Sponsored by
Nuance

Different care settings present unique challenges. In pediatric populations, clinical indicators within the population vary widely depending on the child’s age and developmental stage. Further complicating matters, the guidelines are complex and often subject to discretionary acceptance. In acute hospitals, consistently achieving the types of improvements necessary for value-based care requires a new approach.

In this session on Thursday, February 20th at 1 pm ET, speakers will demonstrate the ways in which AI integrates in workflow to capture appropriate documentation at the point-of-care to guide providers on diagnoses that can automatically query, clarify, document in the medical record to facilitate coding, quality scoring, and accurate clinical communication.

Learning Objectives:

  • Review the positive quality and financial outcomes of deploying a clinically-focused approach to documentation improvement
  • Learn how AI can guide providers with diagnoses and treatments and improve clinical documentation and coding at the point-of-care
  • Takeaway best practices for adopting conversational AI solutions into the documentation workflow at your organization

Strategic Implementation of 2020 Code Changes and their Impact on Compliance

Sponsored by
Change Healthcare

Compliance risks can occur at any point in the revenue cycle.  The mid-revenue cycle is the point at which clinical documentation improvement, coding, charge capture, prebill reviews, and claims processing occurs.  Given the number of processes at this point in the revenue cycle, significant revenue can be lost due to poor practices in any one of these areas.  Shoring up the mid-revenue cycle can help mitigate compliance risk due to a failure to adhere to best practices in any of these areas and allow for optimization of revenue and improvements in quality performance.  Join us for a detailed discussion of the opportunities for an optimal mid-revenue cycle. 

Learning objectives:

• Understand how tight management of claims on hold for edits and denials is essential to a healthy revenue cycle.
• Recognize the importance of engaging physicians in the clinical documentation improvement process.
• Identify why it’s important to have payer-specific requirements at the point of claims processing, not at the point of coding.
• Understand the updated 2020 ICD-10 and CPT codes and their effect on compliance.
