Successfully managing a corporate charge description master (CDM) is arguably one of the most important steps in streamlining and centralizing revenue cycle operations across a health system with multiple hospitals. 

In this presentation, Trinity Health will share their approach, challenges, and the benefits realized from standardizing their CDMs across their 47-hospital, multi-HIS environment. This presentation will explore different approaches to corporate CDM maintenance and standardization found in modern health systems, and the advantages of disadvantages of keeping your hospitals’ CDMs independent, partially standardizing some aspects of the CDM, or bringing all facilities under the same corporate standard. We will cover key factors to consider and common problems in corporate CDM management, for example how to manage acquired hospitals that are using different HIS / EHR platforms, lack of clear ownership, and maintaining charge data visibility.

After This Webinar You'll Be Able To:

  • Apply lessons learned from the early adopters of the ICD-10 coding system
  • Understand different types of corporate CDM standardization models and their strengths and weaknesses
  • Be familiar with how to create and efficiently maintain corporate CDM standard across multiple hospitals
  • Understand common pitfalls to avoid when adding new hospitals into an existing standard
