2022 Stronger - P133 - Optimizing Neurology Inpatient Discharge Documentation - On Demand
Ensuring that inpatient clinical documentation supports the level of patient complexity is an ongoing challenge for most institutions. The organization’s ability to capture patient complexity influences performance, as well as mortality indices, length of stay and payer reimbursement. Our innovative tool improves patient charting by maximizing available risk models to their fullest potential to optimize inpatient neurology resident discharge documentation. Our team demonstrates improved complication or comorbidity/major complication or comorbidity capture rates through implementation of this novel model.
