Clinical Documentation Program for PrevisEA™ Hospital Customers
It is well-recognized that gastrointestinal impairment (GII) due to a postoperative ileus (POI) is a leading complication following major abdominal surgery that:
● Increases the length of patient stays
● Increases the use of hospital resources
● May lead to hospital readmissions and emergency room utilization1,2
The use of PrevisEA™ as a tool to assess potential postoperative digestive health following major abdominal surgery
Recent published research has shown that even when clinical signs and symptoms of POI are present within an appropriate clinical context, documentation to establish the diagnosis of POI is often lacking, leading to inaccurate coding.3 Clinicians often treat the sequelae of POI without establishing the link between their treatment and a diagnosis in the medical record. The lack of a unified definition of POI creates confusion in recognition, documentation, and coding.
Previs CDP was created by professional experts in clinical documentation improvement (CDI) and coding compliance.
