You are measured on the care you document, not the care you deliver

As healthcare reform shifts the focus towards better quality outcomes for patients and value-based payment, hospitals and health systems need innovative solutions and services that proactively address change across the continuum of care. High quality clinical documentation is more important now than ever.

We guarantee the success of your program by providing a complete solution including all the right technology, implementation, training, and ongoing support to engage your physician, CDI and coding teams to sustain the highest levels of quality over time.

Proven Success
For over 20 years our approach to CDI backed by the J.A. Thomas Compliant Documentation Management Program® (CDMP®) has resulted in CMI improvement of 4-8%, reimbursement appropriate to the level of care provided to patients, physician engagement and buy-in, all with innovative services, technology, comprehensive program maintenance, structured compliance support and an infrastructure to sustain positive results.

ROI
Our clients typically realize a return on investment on program costs within 4-6 months.

Spanning the Continuum of Care
Care delivery is shifting away from the hospital. Make sure your clinical documentation captured in all care settings accurately reflects the level of care provided and the severity of your patient population. Improving quality and managing risk depends on it.
