Using Artificial Intelligence to Enhance Clinical Documentation Improvement

February 20, 2020
Free for AMIA members and non-members.
Tanuj K. Gupta, MD, MBA; Beth McCauley, RHIA

Clinical documentation improvement is important to physicians and hospitals to capture how sick patients truly are by documenting clear and specific diagnoses that impact the encounter, to document it while the patient is still in-house, and for the physician to be able to address it while they are in their workflow. This will show a true reflection of the time and resources used to treat the patient and thus be accurately reflected on discharge.


Learning Objectives

After participating in this activity, the learner should be better able to:

  • Explore practical applications of artificial intelligence and natural language processing in healthcare
  • Learn how artificial intelligence can be used specifically for Clinical Documentation improvement
  • Stay educated on future healthcare technologies and potential pilot / full deployment projects
