    We are starting to look at outpatient CDI program.  I was wondering if anyone would share where they started, did you start in ER and then move to clinics or did you do this simultaneously?  Also if you are using a CDI software to help with this, why system are you utilizing.  Thanks in Advance.  Kim

    Hi,
    Good Morning,

    We started from ER about E/M documentation requirement for each key elements (Hx, Physical examination and MDM). Physician are documenting appropriately now.
    Now, we are focusing inpatient documentation.
