Ambulatory clinical documentation integrity (CDI) is not simply CDI in the outpatient setting, as you will learn during the next edition of Talk Ten Tuesdays. We have three reports on why the two must be approached differently. Leading the discussion will be Dr. James Kennedy, one of the nation’s frontrunners in clinical documentation integrity programs. Dr. Kennedy will be joined by Glenn Krauss and Cynthia Keith.

Other segments set to be featured on the broadcast include:

  • News Desk: Laurie Johnson, who anchors the Talk Ten Tuesdays news desk, will check in with the latest ICD-10 headline news. Laurie is the director of health information management (HIM) consulting services for Panacea Healthcare Solutions, a Career Step company.

  • Coding Report: Cynthia Keith, coding supervisor at Alpha II, LLC, will report on the importance of correct coding entry in the outpatient setting.

  • CDI Report: Glenn Krauss will answer the question: is outpatient CDI an offshoot of traditional CDI programs?

  • Value-Based Purchasing: Tim Powell will report the ominous impact of value-based purchasing (VBP) on skilled nursing facilities.

  • DocTalk: Dr. Erica Remer will  preview her upcoming two-part series on secondary diagnoses.

All this and more will be coming your way this coming Tuesday, April 11 at 10 a.m. ET.
