Clinical Documentation Integrity (CDI) Education and Query Review Services

With complete and accurate clinical documentation driving quality metrics, accurate reimbursement, and performance-based contracting, getting physicians to improve their documentation is a critical priority. Our peer physicians work directly with your providers, identifying cases and trends where there is opportunity to improve documentation effectiveness and drive immediate revenue results.
