Clinical documentation is at the core of every patient visit. It must be accurate, timely and reflect the services provided. Successful programs facilitate the accurate representation of a patient’s clinical status that translates into coded data. Coded data is then translated into quality reporting, physician report cards, reimbursement, public health data and disease tracking and trending.
