Latest CASE STUDIES
By AGS Health
July 28, 2022
Most medical procedures are moving to outpatient facilities, thanks to technological advancements and minimally invasive surgical procedures. Outpatient services in lower-cost settings have also benefited from financial incentives, patient preferences, government support, and other policies. But value-based care incentives have been the driving force behind this trend. Value-based payment models encourage patients to use outpatient care facilities. According to a study by Deloitte, the aggregate share of outpatient services in total hospital revenue increased from 28 percent in 1994 to nearly half (48 percent) by 2018. Patient preferences and clinical advancements that reduce complications and allow patients to return home sooner are driving much of this growth. Because of this growth, a robust outpatient clinical documentation information (CDI) system is necessary to manage the increase in outpatient services.
As technologies have advanced and costs have skyrocketed, a larger share of medical services are able to be performed as outpatient – driving the need for improved outpatient clinical documentation (CDI) programs. CDI processes should be performed during a patient encounter, which is why CDI technology is so important. The main benefits of outpatient CDI include:
Once a solid outpatient CDI has been established, it can be extended to the ambulatory setting. The following issues must be addressed to achieve this:
It's imperative to understand organizational objectives and develop an ambulatory program that supports them. The success of any ambulatory CDI program depends on strong leadership and the ability to adapt to change.
