HIMAA CDI Series

Operational CDIFriday 23 Jul 2021 | 12 pm – 1 pm AEST

Speaker: Dreda Heard

Health Information Managers and Clinical Coders have unique skill sets that are fundamental to accurate funding of health care. Documentation improvement is a core skill we apply to identify data and documentation improvement opportunities. We achieve enhanced documentation integrity through audit, education, coding queries, and clinician engagement.

Our expertise in data management, data quality, and clinical information abstraction contributes to the future of sustainable, efficient health care funding and the viability of the Activity Based Funding (ABF) model. The importance of clinical documentation to funding and safe care has resulted in the emergence of the Clinical Documentation Specialist (CDS) as a key HIS team member.

To enhance our understanding of how to leverage our expertise in documentation improvement programs the HIMAA CDI Webinar Series will run over the next 12 months. We will consider how we can adapt our existing clinician relationships, apply our knowledge of the health care system, data collections, and funding models to respond to the need for sustainable CDI programs.

The first in its CDI Series, Operational CDI will look at the HIM/Coder value proposition, the CDI points of intersection with the wider health system, and aspects of HIS oversight in CDI programs. It will explore how and where CDI is placed and can be leveraged across your workplace.

How not to document – learnings for CDS, HIM/Coders & CliniciansFriday 30 April | 12 pm – 1 pm AEST

Chair: Dreda Heard, CDI SIG Convenor
Speakers: Glenn Krauss & Robin Sewell

Glenn and Robin bring their extensive knowledge of clinical documentation, quality care and clinician engagement to look at clinical documentation practices that reflect both complexity of care and health care funding. Using real case studies, in this webinar they consider clinical documentation practices that may be denied by insurance providers in the private setting or in public health be picked up in the internal/external audit cycles as not supporting clinical code assignment; which in both cases can result in payment denial, and missed or inaccurate funding outcomes.

CDS, HIMs and Clinical Coders in both the private and public settings can apply the findings from the case studies to understand how to support documentation improvement on the ward and within the record to optimise documentation practices for funding and care.

This information will also be invaluable when designing and delivering CDI education that supports improved documentation across the continuum of care.  This will facilitate safe, coordinated care, reduce the burden of coding queries and ensure clinical documentation practices effectively, clearly and concisely communicate the patient care provided.
