Computer-Assisted CDI

Overview

Precise codes, every time, through improved documentation

Clinical Documentation Integrity (CDI) requires a comprehensive, multidisciplinary, enterprise-wide effort to translate a patient’s condition into precise codes accurately. The AGS AI Platform CDI module automatically analyzes digital patient charts for errors and suggests potential queries for improved data quality that result in better clinical information, compliance, and revenue.

Collaboration Across Teams

Provides a unified data platform for collaboration between Coding, HIM, Clinical, and CDI teams.

Alerts and Notifications

Real-time quality measure alerts for HACs, readmissions, and PSIs.

Geographic redundancy

Leverages multi-location data storage to ensure 99+% uptime.

Features

Computer-Assisted CDI Features and Capabilities

Intelligent CDI Worklists
Cover More Charts
Charts are prioritized based on suggested queries so staff can look at every relevant chart before it gets coded.
Work Concurrently
Real-time synchronization of clinical notes and attachments from the EHR means your team can work alongside physicians in the EHR.
Prioritize and Hold
Keep track of charts with queries awaiting a response and hold charts from coding so queries don’t get missed.
Automatic Query Suggestions
Automatic Query Identification
Focus your CDI team on the charts that have potential queries automatically identified.
Predictive Coding and Queries
Each chart will be predictively coded based on current documentation and queries suggested based on potential coding opportunities or missing support.
Query Templates
With over 100 query templates in place, creating and responding to a query is lightning fast. You can edit or create new query templates that fit your organization.
Actionable CDI Reporting
Show Financial Impact
Instantly understand the impact of your CDI program with real-time measurement of CMI, risk scoring, quality measures, and staff productivity.
Focus on Non-Compliant Providers
Easily identify providers that are not responding to queries in a timely fashion, and see what queries are not needed based on provider feedback.
Audit CDI and Coding Variance
Review the variance you see between CDI coding assumptions and actual coding going out on claims.

Encoders and Groupers

Integrated Encoder

CDI comes with a built-in ‘book-based’ encoder, helping you select the right code with full supporting guideline information and coding clinics.

Integrated References

An integrated reference guide provides detailed visuals and anatomical information for coders to reference during the coding process.

Integrated and 3M Grouper

DRG and MSDRG grouping is built-in, but for those who need the 3M APR Grouper, that is easily activated through an existing integration with 3M (separate 3M fees apply).
