ST. CLAIRSVILLE, Ohio, Nov. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- To meet the need and demand for credentialed documentation specialists, a new company has been established to provide seminars to train diverse healthcare personnel in the areas of clinical documentation improvement. A new credentialing program, Certified in Clinical Documentation Improvement (C-CDI), has also been accredited.
C-CDI is the first certification program to recognize the growing importance of having specially prepared & trained individuals in this very important, evolving area in healthcare.
Dr. Betty B. Bibbins, president and chief medical officer, believes that individuals who participate in the program will experience practical guidance for helping their hospitals in establishing and maintaining clinical documentation improvement.
"With health care institutions being strongly impacted by the significant, ever-evolving changes in the healthcare industry, every facility is in need of their own, ongoing clinical documentation program," said Bibbins. "The current needs are for everyone within healthcare to be up-to-date on current regulatory standards, and to know how to provide appropriate education to Physicians, Coders, Case Managers, and all other personnel who are impacted by these new rules, as well as their being knowledgeable of compliance to the new standards", she also stated.
To meet the expected demand for accredited documentation specialists, DocuEd LLC currently has scheduled certification seminars in first quarter 2008 for Columbus, Ohio; Orlando, Fla.; and Annapolis, Md.
DocuEd LLC is a wholly owned educational division of DocuComp LLC and is dedicated to significantly improving the accuracy in clinical documentation within health care to capture the complete severity-of-illness being managed and appropriately justify the consumption of resources within today's regulatory environment.
Bibbins, MD is also the president and chief medical officer of DocuComp LLC, a nationally recognized physician owned and managed documentation and compliance organization founded in 1999 and headquartered in St. Clairsville, Ohio.
