Clinical Documentation Integrity: Quality and Cost Implications

Healthcare analysts and industry experts are forecasting that operating margins will remain depressed. Elective surgeries are being placed on hold as Americans are still struggling financially. Unfortunately, less preventative care means that patients are likely to have more health problems that require an emergency room visit, thus putting increased pressure on emergency departments with staff shortages.


Clinicians are striving to record the critical elements of documentation, but with the increasing complexity of patient care, sometimes their efforts may fall short. Knowing this, health system executives are seeking ways to safeguard the financial stability of their organizations. And clinical documentation integrity is one powerful initiative that can support their journey to operational excellence.
