Live- From Severity to Mortality: Evolution of Quality Initiatives in CDI

Webinars - Live
5/11/2017 12:00:00 PM - 1:00:00 PM (CST)

High-quality outcomes data is the key to reimbursement, and clinical documentation improvement (CDI) initiatives are designed to improve the quality of outcomes data. Yet CDI specialists often experience bottlenecks with the implementation of initiatives, especially when it comes to severity of the illness and the risk of mortality. To move past these roadblocks, specialists need to understand the type of quality initiative CDI can navigate. They must learn the differing viewpoints on CDI and how to use that knowledge to create acceptable initiatives. This webinar teaches the audience how to accomplish goals to increase reimbursement for the hospital. In this session, the speaker will define the quality initiatives to be discussed, the specifics of how these initiatives can be accomplished, and how metrics of the information need to be inclusive to organizational goals. There will also be specific information relating to various PSI reviews, readmissions, and mortality reviews that will include de-identified case study information. Because not all stakeholders view CDI the same way, this webinar will explore how providers, quality managers and specialists have unique perspectives on documentation. The goal for attendees is to be able to recognize which key stakeholders and peers can help develop quality CDI initiatives, learn how to communicate the impact of CDI review across the organization, and how to begin the process of quality reviews. It’s time to move forward—you can do it with the help of this session.



  • Discuss the quality initiatives that CDI can navigate.
  • Evaluate how CDI views quality initiatives versus providers versus quality managers.
  • Assess the process of quality initiatives and how CDI can impact those initiatives concurrently.
  • Identify PSI, mortality and other quality program examples within the realm of CDI review.
  • Create a starting point for identifying key stakeholders and peers that can help develop Quality CDI initiatives.
