With the Financial Health of Hospitals at Stake, AI-Powered CDI Can Provide a Critical Revenue Boost
A proven way to inject much-needed efficiency is to rely on technologies such as artificial intelligence to automate tedious manual processes and improve the speed and accuracy of humans as they perform complicated tasks.
Now that almost all clinical documentation lives in an electronic health record, the goal of standardization is pushing facilities to evaluate the documentation that accompanies each encounter.
By implementing AI-powered CDI tools, charts can be reviewed by a machine before being coded and billed, enforcing the consistency needed to capture risk scores, prevent denials and survive audits.
Now, as physicians struggle to keep pace with increased case volumes and complex reimbursement schemes from payers, the capacity of CDI programs to preserve documentation quality while minimizing manual processes is even more important.
