Some of the most commonly queried diagnoses become focus areas simply because different physicians have different clinical definitions for what constitutes a given condition.

To help reduce confusion, CDI professionals can bring coding, quality, and clinical teams together to conduct research and create systemwide, universally accepted criteria for these conditions.

This webinar will describe a strategic initiative for systemwide clinical definitions that’s underway at Wake Forest Baptist Health in North Carolina. Speakers from Wake Forest will detail the lessons learned, review metrics to help lead data-driven decision-making, and suggest easy-to-implement EHR and IT changes to help reduce documentation burdens on physicians.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Identify opportunities to leverage EHR and IT in enhancing provider clinical documentation to improve workflow and efficiency
  • Define clinical indicators and discuss their role in clinical documentation
  • Evaluate whether clinical indicator research and development could be beneficial for their own organization
