One technology making waves in this domain is Iodine Software’s Forecast module, a tool designed to enhance Clinical Documentation Integrity (CDI) by automating dynamic elements of the process. Given the global mid-revenue cycle management/clinical documentation market’s expected reach of $4.55 billion by 2027, the stakes are high for healthcare organizations to ensure accuracy and efficiency in their documentation practices.

  • The overall impact of Forecast on the purity and efficiency of CDI and how it has transformed the workflow for CDI specialists at Steward Healthcare
