CDI: Compliant Technology Adoption and the Role of the CDS

From its onset, CDI has sought to ensure the accuracy and integrity of the documentation in the patient’s health record. AHIMA and Artifact, an Iodine solution convened a panel of experts from across the healthcare industry for a roundtable discussion exploring best practices in CDI and how advances in artificial intelligence (AI) technology are transforming clinical documentation integrity (CDI) and the role of clinical documentation specialists (CDSs).

Key Findings

1 - AI/ML-enabled technology is an important tool to support clinical documentation but does not eliminate the need for CDSs whose clinical and critical thinking skills are paramount to CDI success.

2 - Advanced AI/ML CDI systems assist in identifying the right cases for review at the right time and meet regulatory compliance.

3 - Technology adoption improves efficiencies for providers and CDSs alike, enhancing satisfaction and proficiency.
