Appropriate provider documentation for clinically indicated conditions or procedures supports appropriate assignment of severity of illness, expected risk of mortality, intensity of service and resource consumption, which in turn accurately portrays the facility’s quality outcomes ratings, reduces compliance risks, and captures appropriate reimbursement.
