Clinical Documentation Improvement Week: Ensuring a complete, accurate medical record

Sept 19-23 marks Clinical Documentation Improvement Week. The Tucson Medical Center Clinical Documentation Improvement team is a group of eight dedicated and experienced registered nurses who review records concurrently and retrospectively to obtain detailed, appropriate documentation.

They work with physicians and other providers to present a complete record to coding and billing departments. Their efforts provide accurate reimbursement to the hospital from Medicare and other insurances, including AHCCCS, as well as provide accurate data for TMC’s quality metrics.
