The Medical Director is responsible for overseeing every chart that goes through the MD-Review Tower. This involves reviewing the medical chart with the DRG Coach to ensure an accurate representation of a patient's clinical status has been translated into coded data. The Medical Director is responsible for capturing the true clinical picture in a manner compliant with federal laws and the healthcare organization's information privacy practices through identification of coding and physician query opportunities.
The Medical Director works with the DRG Coach to confirm the principal diagnosis and the appropriate Diagnosis Related Group of every case in compliance with coding guidelines. This process also involves the Medical Director confirming procedures, dates, and a complication or comorbidity (CC) or a major complication or comorbidity (MCC) when used as a secondary diagnosis. The Medical Director validates clinical indicators for coded diagnoses, capturing the patient's condition and ensuring the accuracy of the severity of illness and risk of mortality for the patient to illustrate the true clinical picture of the episode of care.
