[meteor_slideshow slideshow=”adssa” metadata=”height: 126, width: 630″]
Compare the different CDI softwares available now (5 of them). For example, MIDAS, 3M CDI software, EPIC. These should strictly be the software available for data entry and DRG calculation. Discuss all pros and cons of each. Find the loophole needed to justify research and design of a new software that allows indepth entry of a patient’s hospital visit exhaustively. Then discuss about the benefits the new software will have – complete data entry to withstand scrutiny of any kind, ease of access to patient’s record, ease of calculation of length of stay, re-admissions based on same MS DRG, case mix index, reimbursement, revenue impact, availability of record at any time with complete information and no need to access the patient’s physical record again (the CDI entry will tell the whole story on the screen), ease of data analysis and calculation. Do an exhaustive comparison of the existing CDI software models in use. Talk about their evolution over time.
