Using data analytics to fuel correct, compliant financial reimbursement and accurate quality reporting

As health care continues to move toward value-based care and pay-for-performance models, the financial ramifications of performance on certain quality measures also increase. In this new environment, clinical documentation plays a more critical role in care quality, driving health care providers to collaborate with clinical documentation, quality and coding teams for more accurate data reporting.

Vizient Clinical Documentation Improvement helps members advance the quality of clinical documentation, which results in improved and compliant reimbursements. Further, you achieve a more reflective case mix index (CMI) that truly shows acuity and complexity of care for your patient population.
