2022 Guide to Clinical Validation
and Documentation Improvement for Coding - (Softbound)
This is a concise, reliable, and easy-to-follow tool for those problematic diagnoses and PCS inpatient procedures that are most often questioned by payers. This unique resource provides the extensive clinical criteria and associated documentation necessary for code assignment. This tool also describes the clinical documentation needed for determining if the condition is a complication or when a medical condition qualifies as an additional diagnosis. Also included is an introduction to the query process and how DRGs, CCs, MCCs, POAs, and HACs affect reimbursement. CDI staff, coders, utilization review staff, and HIM managers can use this to systematically evaluate the clinical criteria that influence code assignments and patient care.
