Zero in on CDI cases with the highest impact

We’re talking about high impact on quality, risk-adjustment scores and financial outcomes. The ability to prioritize and automate CDI worklists helps CDI teams increase efficiency—with the same staff. This elevates the role of CDI specialists by allowing them to focus efforts on top priority cases for both initial and follow-up reviews.

What distinguishes 3M’s CDI worklist capability is flexibility and transparency. Clients can customize the rules, logic and targets to prioritize based on their organization’s specific needs. NLP technology suggests queries for CDI specialists based on things hidden the patient’s documentation to get the most out of every review.

    Computer-assisted CDI results in:
