Proactive CDI: Tackling the Problem of Physician Engagement
Leadership research survey indicates growing role of CDI professionals in clinical validation, denials prevention, and clinical appeals
The number one problem facing CDI departments nationwide is physician engagement. CDI has for much of its history been reactive in nature; i.e., querying unclear/nonspecific documentation after the physician has already documented it in the chart.
This report offers statistics from a national survey of 119 CDI directors/leaders/supervisors of their efforts to make CDI proactive—i.e., educating physicians on what to document prior to setting pen to paper/fingers to keyboard. It also offers best practices and survey analysis on the subject from the leaders of seven high-performing CDI departments across the nation.
