As new roles emerge within healthcare documentation, the Clinical Documentation Improvement’s role is key in supporting high-quality documentation and meeting healthcare facility objectives.  What are the vision, mission, and value of Clinical Documentation Improvement and its programs?  With every new title comes new terminology.  We will learn the terminology pertinent to Clinical Documentation Improvement activities, in addition to the core skills and performance expectations for Clinical Documentation Specialists.  Think outside the box and see how you could retool and qualify for this related field.
