improvement is the process of reviewing and monitoring medical record
enables to track patient assessment, review of the disease
process, and details about admission, diagnostic
findings, and clinical tests.
To bridge the gap between accurate coding and clinical documentation is
primary demand driver for clinical documentation improvement. CDI collects

ensures topmost accuracy and
offers a number of benefits including secure timely compensation,
constant acquiescence with regulations, aids in detecting the risk adjustment
