Recent findings from HFMA's Executive Survey, Clinical Documentation Meets Financial Performance, confirm the transition to ICD-10 is the top clinical documentation priority, with optimizing reimbursement and improving quality metrics vying for second. While improving the accuracy of clinical documentation is the greatest opportunity for financial improvement, disruption of physician workflow and difficulty working with technologies and systems are two of the top barriers respondents noted for improving the documentation process.

During this webinar, the speakers share practical advice on how to improve your organization’s revenue through a strategic end-to-end clinical documentation chain and engage your physicians in the clinical documentation improvement process. This webinar also provides ways to optimize health information management (HIM) resources to focus on key initiatives including an efficient way for clinicians to create more complete and compliant clinical documentation while improving coding, downstream revenue cycle, and quality reporting processes.

  • Identify best practices to engage physicians to support ICD-10/coding processes and improve reimbursement and productivity.
