The combined effect of CDM errors can mean thousands of erroneous bills and millions on the bottom line.
Despite vast technological advances in healthcare computing, three critical areas leave a hospital financially vulnerable. Compliance, integration, and revenue realization are highly dependent upon a dynamically changing set of rules and demand precise attention to detail. These rules are embodied in the hospital’s charge description master (CDM), a monumental structure that is the keystone of hospital computing and contains the building blocks of all hospital charges, bills, and orders.
The more a hospital relies on financial automation, the more it demands an expert’s touch in the care and maintenance of the hospital CDM. At CPI Experts, we take the guesswork out of CDM structure, coding, and compliance. Our professionals are specialists in interpreting regulatory requirements and translating them into a CDM structure and coding scheme that allows your hospital to produce accurate bills and submit claims successfully and in full compliance with Medicare.
