  • Better understand how CDI methods can effectively contribute to the denials management process
  • Identify areas where physician documentation may be falling short within your organization
  • Describe best practice standards related to physician documentation required to effectively communicate the patient’s status in support of medical necessity
  • Leverage medical record audit results to improve clinical documentation and reduce payment reductions/denials
