Leveraging CDI in a Value-Based Reimbursement World

By Leigh Poland RHIA, CCS & Suhas Nair


The Value-Based Payment model for medical services is gradually replacing the traditional Fee-for-Service model for payers and healthcare organizations. Clinical documentation programs are being reinvented due to the ever-changing nature of the healthcare industry. Value-based purchasing and other reimbursement issues, such as patient safety indicators, audits, and hospital-acquired complications (HAC), are dependent upon reliable, accurate, and complete documentation.
