Speed revenue cycle, boost productivity, and reduce denials with our comprehensive CDI and CAC solution
With the ICD-10 deadline approaching, many organizations are preparing for the increase in codes and change in coding structure, all while addressing the coder shortage. Our advanced computer-assisted coding (CAC) platform with integrated clinical documentation improvement (CDI) can help your organization streamline ICD-10 preparation and implementation. And, by automating much of the work, this CAC and CDI functionality can also help you improve overall department efficiency, documentation quality, and coding accuracy.
The foundation of solid coding: solid clinical documentation
The Optum™ Clinical Documentation Improvement Module helps hospitals achieve more detailed, complete clinical documentation concurrent to patient stay for more accurate coding, better compliance, and faster reimbursement. This CDI software automatically reviews all inpatient records to identify cases with a high probability of missing or inconsistent clinical information before patient discharge, minimizing the time and resources typically spent verifying documentation manually.
As a result, clinical documentation specialists spend less time rooting out potential cases in need of clinical documentation improvement and more time addressing likely ones. And because the software automatically generates physician queries when needed, CDI specialists can devote more time to educating clinicians on the specificity required in clinical documentation for proper coding under ICD-10.
A comprehensive, fully integrated CAC and CDI platform
The Optum CDI Module, part of our Enterprise CAC Platform, is a complete solution for automating hospital inpatient concurrent CDI and coding processes — and improving clinical documentation and coding quality.
This powerful solution combines breakthrough technology, clinical revenue cycle workflow enhancements, and change management support for best-practice approach to CDI:
- Eliminates the need to purchase or integrate with a separate CDI tool or query tracker
- Streamlines the query process across the continuum
- Improves communication between physicians, coders, and CDI specialists
The CDI Module leverages Optum’s proven LifeCode® natural language processing (NLP) technology for automated case finding and a more efficient workflow. Together with our comprehensive adoption methodology, Optum provides unmatched capabilities to help your hospital improve revenue integrity, enhance clinical data analytics, and ease the transition to ICD-10.
