2023 Together - PH314 - Artificial Intelligence Gaps: Concurrent Coders to the Rescue — Traditional CDI, Nontraditional Methods
Since joining Vizient in 2018, Intermountain Health has strived to reach the top decile of the Vizient Quality and Accountability (Q&A) rankings (which we have accomplished) and we continue working to stay there. As documentation plays a key role in all domains of the Vizient Q&A, the Clinical Documentation Integrity (CDI) team plays a crucial role in helping to accurately capture patient acuity. Given the constantly evolving nature of healthcare, we must think of novel ways to increase productivity without additional bodies. This work highlights the use of a small set of coders to review cases (based on our financial impact opportunity compared to the national benchmark from the Vizient Clinical Data Base) — before the CDI nurse team reviews them. This enables us to accurately and efficiently identify cases with true opportunity for review by the CDI nurses.
