Abstract

The following paper examines how the philosophy of Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) can be used to improve the quality of clinical documentation and coding. The philosophical basis of CQI and its application in the healthcare environment is outlined. Health information managers need to explore inventive ways of solving the problem of inadequate clinical documentation and high coding error rates, particularly in light of the current casemix-based funding environment.
