VitalWare Launches VitalCDI, the Next Generation in Clinical Documentation Improvement

Visit VitalWare in Booth #639 at AHIMA's 2014 National Conference in San Diego to Experience, First-Hand, How VitalCDI's Dynamic, Interactive Query Approach Offers an Alternative to Today's Restrictive, Template Based CDI Technologies

YAKIMA, WA--(Marketwired - Sep 29, 2014) - VitalWare™, the leader in business intelligence for ICD-10 and beyond, announces, in conjunction with the 2014 National AHIMA Convention and Exhibit, the launch of VitalCDI™, their innovative clinical documentation improvement solution. VitalCDI offers the first to market, dynamic, interactive CDI methodology, ensuring complete and accurate documentation through focused, unrestricted queries under ICD-9 and ICD-10.

Until now, CDI technology applications have not provided the functionality necessary to build queries that are succinct and representative of only what is missing in the documentation. VitalCDI changes that. By offering functionality for the creation of "on the fly" and customizable template queries that contain a physician guide to specific and complete documentation fulfillment, the impact of CDI initiatives on physician productivity is lessened, and the fiscal health of providers is improved.

"If clinical documentation improvements are made today, ICD-10 becomes a non-event for physicians," said Kerry Martin, President and CEO of VitalWare. "We've designed an entirely new CDI query approach that presents physicians with only the necessary clinical concept prompts they need, guiding them to more complete documentation, and ultimately, facilitating more accurate code assignment," Martin added.

VitalCDI, like the entire suite of VitalWare solutions, is embedded with ICD Sherpa, VitalWare's patent pending, proprietary, physician documentation engine. ICD Sherpa is the engine that presents the missing clinical concepts for the queries created in VitalCDI, addressing the gaps and guiding the physician to complete and specific documentation. 

For a live demonstration of VitalCDI, the first to market CDI solution with a dynamic, interactive query methodology, visit VitalWare in booth #639 in San Diego at the 86th AHIMA Convention & Exhibit, September 27 - October 2, 2014.
