Overview

Proper coding requires meaningful documentation that is complete, accurate, and consistent. A properly configured clinical documentation improvement (CDI) program can help achieve this goal and drive greater revenue outcomes for your organization.

You can count on the AGS Health team to provide retrospective, concurrent, and prospective reviews of clinical documentation. We will help you identify missing information, place physician queries, and recommend improvement opportunities to ensure your documentation is ready for coding.
