About the Webinar
The stress of the pandemic and clinician shortage, coupled with an ever-increasing workload, has taken its toll on healthcare workers. Inefficiencies in the workflow exacerbate this problem, and make their work even harder. A prime example of inefficiency is the coding and billing process, where clinicians and HIM professionals often go back-and-forth to find the proper diagnosis codes. Using accurate diagnosis codes ensures clinicians adequately document for a patients’ condition and can help improve outcomes. However, clinicians and HIM professionals spend days or weeks deciding on the proper diagnosis code. This retrospective approach to documentation improvement forces clinicians to rely on their memory from weeks ago, which may negatively impact treatment plans. Additionally, this interrupts HIM professionals' workflow, delays reimbursement, and adds duplicative work that contributes to clinician burnout. How can we address these issues without increasing the workload?
In this webinar, healthcare technology experts will share how technology can be used early in the workflow to make it faster and easier for clinicians to input accurate diagnosis codes directly into the patient chart. Panelists will discuss how reducing duplicative work and streamlining processes can improve outcomes, increase reimbursement, and reduce clinician workload and, consequently, burnout.
