The MedPartners CDI Laboratory

Maximizing Revenue Through Proven Talent

In late 2011, MedPartners was signed on to partner with one of the largest academic medical centers in the United States. The hospital offers some of the most advanced treatment available in the world and has been ranked among the nation’s best hospitals by U.S. News and World Report since 1993. In addition to being a designated Comprehensive Cancer Center and a Level I Trauma Center, this hospital serves as an advanced academic facility drawing patients from all over the world to receive cutting-edge care.

In order to continue this tradition of service excellence, the hospital leadership evaluated the effectiveness of their Clinical Documentation Improvement (CDI) program and determined that there was room for improvement. At the time, the hospital employed a relatively small CDI team that operated in a CDI model set up years earlier by an outside vendor.

Hospital leadership understood the importance of CDI and realized that, in order to accurately reflect the complexity and acuity of their patient population, they required a CDI program as robust and progressive as the care that they provided to patients. To achieve this goal, the hospital required top CDI talent from the nationwide talent pool available through MedPartners.
