AI Automates CDI, But Does it Improve Documentation?

Formal education. Informal education. Mobile apps. The art of the precision-timed hallway conversation. For as long as clinical documentation improvement (CDI) programs have existed, CDI specialists have been coming up with ways to yield more accurate documentation in a timely manner.

The holy grail of CDI is gaining the accurate documentation needed for reimbursement, quality reporting, patient care, and population health, without further burdening providers—who already stretched-thin.

Artifact, an Iodine solution, in collaboration with AHIMA, recently convened a panel of experts and released a white paper examining how technology based on artificial intelligence/machine learning (AI/ML) can improve not only processes through automation, but documentation quality, patient care, and even job satisfaction.

Key findings of the white paper, “"CDI: Compliant Technology Adoption and the Role of Clinical Documentation Specialists",” include:

  • AI/ML-enabled technology is an effective tool to support clinical documentation, but does not eliminate the need for CDSs, whose clinical and critical thinking skills are paramount to CDI success.
  • Advanced AI/ML CDI systems assist in identifying the right cases for review at the right time and meet regulatory compliance.
  • Technology adoption improves efficiencies for providers and clinical documentation specialists alike, enhancing their satisfaction and proficiency.

For more insights into CDI and how advances in AI technology are transforming CDI and the role of clinical documentation specialists, read the full white paper.
