The latest reiteration of its CDI program, called Hybrid CDI, constitutes a system that combines off-site as well as on-site clinical documentation integrity specialists.
Show Notes
University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) is a world-renowned healthcare provider and insurer based in Pittsburgh, Penn. With more than 30 academic, community, and specialty hospitals, 600 doctors’ offices in outpatient sites, and more than 4,600 physicians, operating an array of rehabilitation, retirement, and long-term care facilities, UPMC relies on technology to help enhance its coding and clinical documentation improvement (CDI) program.  And the latest reiteration of its CDI program, called Hybrid CDI, constitutes a system that combines off-site as well as on-site clinical documentation integrity specialists.

To learn more about this promising approach, we asked Megan Cortazzo, MD, an assistant professor of physical medicine and rehabilitation at UPMC, to be our special guest on this edition of Talk Ten Tuesdays. Dr. Cortazzo also serves as the medical director of CDI and health information management (HIM) for the UPMC System.
