Elsevier Clinical Solutions Introduces Free Clinical Documentation Improvement Reference App for Apple and Android Phones and Tablets
Date:7/15/2014

PHILADELPHIA, July 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --


Mobile app created for physicians based on standardized ICD-10 requirements 


Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, today announced the launch of the Elsevier Clinical Documentation Improvement (CDI) Reference App for Apple and Android phones and tablets. The free mobile app was created using ICD-10 coding requirements and developed specifically for physicians and clinical documentation specialists to help improve clinical documentation within the healthcare record. Using Elsevier original content, the Elsevier CDI Reference app is now available for free download via iTunes and Google Play.

The app enables clinicians to quickly and easily find the exact clinical terms or phrases to accurately describe a specific patient condition. Additionally, it will help demonstrate medical necessity for services, justify admission and treatment, and accurately reflect the severity of illness based on the patient's presentation. This allows the physician to document conditions correctly and creates a seamless handoff between the physician and the coder for payment.

"Providing physicians with a reference tool that emphasizes complete documentation while considering ICD-10-CM/PCS requirements will enable improved data quality to assist with defining excellent healthcare delivery, payment, compliance and quality reporting," said Deb Neville, Director of Revenue Cycle, Coding, and Compliance, Elsevier Clinical Solutions. "Eventually, improved patient care will result from the integration of concise information within the EHR by offering pertinent information from a single source."

The app focuses on 45 conditions that have the most compliance risk, changes to documentation requirements, payment or audit implications, or that generate the most queries for specification from coding staff. Examples of conditions include, Chest Pain and Angina, Dementia, Heart Failure, Kidney Disease, Myocardial Infarction, OB, Perinatal Care, Pneumonia, Sepsis and SIRS, Spinal Disorders, Syncope and Collapse, and Venous Thromboembolism.

Key documentation elements that are provided under each condition include:

  • Acuity
  • Designation of type of condition
  • Etiology
  • Associated conditions and manifestations
  • Clinical indicators
  • Staging
  • Treatments or interventions
  • Information unique to neonates or pediatric patients, if appropriate
