Medical record documentation is vital to a strong revenue cycle and is crucial to patient care. Regulatory requirements and payer guidelines are focused on the medical record, making accurate clinical documentation more important than ever. Healthcare organizations have been challenged by regulatory changes, Recovery Audit Contractors (RAC), medical necessity requirements and the transition from volume to value, which has impacted their ability to be reimbursed. The increase in denials across the industry bears witness to the fact that a robust Clinical Documentation Improvement (CDI) Program is necessary to a successful revenue cycle.
