As health care continues to move toward value-based care and pay-for-performance models, the financial ramifications of performance on certain quality measures also increase. In this new environment, clinical documentation plays a more critical role in care quality, driving health care providers to collaborate with clinical documentation, quality, and coding teams for more accurate data reporting.
