Description

Clinical documentation integrity (CDI) programs can have a broad impact in outpatient settings. One key area for outpatient CDI to consider is denials reduction, which begins with understanding what’s contributing to denial risk.
Denial reduction is really about denial prevention. It’s about analyzing denials by category, by payer, and by reason to uncover trends for high-volume or high-dollar denials, then using that discovery to provide education about clinical documentation issues or gaps.
In the next live edition of Talk Ten Tuesdays, outpatient CDI expert Colleen Deighan will return with the final segment of her popular series on a subject that continues to generate listener interest and questions. Deighan will also conduct a listener’s survey during the weekly Internet radio broadcast.
The live broadcast will also feature these other segments:

  • Tuesday Focus: Susan Gatehouse will report on the potential impacts of the new Edit 20 (Unspecified Code Edit) for inpatient claims opens up an opportunity for enhanced CDI with targeted education. The list of unspecified diagnosis codes, subject to the new edit, will require targeted training for your billing staff to avoid reimbursement issues, and provides a platform for improving CDI.
  • News Update: Mary H. Stanfill, a new ICD10monitor correspondent focusing on ICD-11, will provide the latest update on the new code set looming on the horizon.
  • The Coding Report: Laurie Johnson will report on the latest coding news that has appeared on her radar screen.  
  • News Desk: Timothy Powell, compliance expert and ICD10monitor national correspondent, will anchor the Talk-Ten-Tuesdays News Desk.
  • TalkBack: Erica Remer, MD, founder and president of Erica Remer, MD, Inc., and Talk Ten Tuesdays co-host, will report on a subject that has caught her attention during her popular segment.
