The journey to clinical documentation excellence takes many paths—all leading toward one goal. Nuance CDE solutions offer industry-leading workflow management and analytics for CDI teams to drive quality care through better documentation because every patient counts.
CDE solutions allow the flexibility to personalize workflow as well as establish uniformity for how the team prioritizes their work day, develop and sort worklists, identify opportunities to initiate clarifications and tailor communications with physicians according to each patient's situation.
Productivity is important. And adding more staff can be difficult. Encounter prioritization, automated workflows, intuitive navigation, built in MS and APR-DRG groupers and quick access to reference materials save time, and even let your team expand case coverage.
Physicians and CDI teams work more closely through clinically-focused clarifications and visibility into actions taken on automated advice. Case management and quality teams have concurrent insight into working DRGs, length of stay and HIM and coding teams can collaborate on final DRG reconciliation.
Clinical strategies and guidance help uncover opportunities to engage physicians in a clinical dialogue about each patient and identify diagnoses based on the clinical evidence in the medical record. Documentation accurately reflects patient diagnoses, procedures and co-morbid conditions that are important to determining appropriate reimbursement and risk-adjusted quality ratings. And specific evidence-based documentation reduces delays in the billing cycle and improves the process for managing denials.
