ACDIS/AHIMA Query Escalation Policies Released
In the April edition of the CDI Journal, ACDIS published the joint ACDIS/AHIMA practice brief on “Guidelines for Achieving a Compliant Query Practice.” The intent of this practice brief is to maintain the integrity of the coded healthcare data. The purpose of the query process outlined is to ensure appropriate documentation appears in the health record. Additional policies may need to be implemented when questions arise regarding the clinical validity in practitioner documentation.
