Select two (2) applications/systems for clinical
classification and coding (e.g., encoders, computer
assisted coding (CAC), etc.) and appraise each vendor in
terms of (1) capacity to evaluate quality coding practices,
(2) possible implementation considerations/issues, and (3)
systems management challenges and training needs.
Provide support for one system that you find as the "best
option" with rationale.
Consider the principles and applications of classification
systems (e.g., ICD-10, HCPCS) and medical record auditing
used within a clinical documentation improvement (CDI)
program. Appraise the value and challenges of a quality
CDI program by defending the need for ongoing CDI
program support and critique at least three (3) challenges
in the CDI process. Make connections between auditing,
accurate diagnostic and procedural coding with
classification systems, and CDI programs. Your executive
summary should reflect upon the need for CDI and best
practices for ensuring compliance.

the health information exchange (HIE) (e.g., patient
identity matching). Appraise at least three (3) best
practices that address the issue.
Evaluate at least three (3) health information systems
