Improving Clinical Documentation Accuracy and Efficiency
Healthcare providers are under increasing pressure to meticulously document clinical encounters in electronic health records (EHRs). A 2020 study found that physicians spend an average of over 16 minutes per patient encounter on administrative tasks in the EHR, leaving less than 5 minutes for direct interaction with the patient.
Providers need better solutions to aid them in encounter documentation so they can accurately capture clinical care and remain compliant with coding requirements without compromising meaningful interactions with patients.
In this whitepaper, you'll learn three ways that technology can aid clinical documentation integrity efforts, including:
- Intuitive guides for code specificity
- Automated review of clinically relevant information
- Near real-time code updates
