Sponsored by SearchHealthIT.com

Clinical documentation is becoming a critical piece of the IT puzzle for organizations that want to take advantage of analytics and population health management. Sure, ICD-10 may add to the challenge, but the importance of increasing quality of care while reducing cost of delivery has made clinical documentation a hot topic.

First, contributor David Weldon offers best practices for a clinical documentation improvement strategy and explains its importance in the care cycle. Next, contributor Reda Chouffani provides five questions that healthcare organizations should have on hand when purchasing a clinical analytics tool. Finally, news and features writer Shaun Sutner looks at survey results that show an increasing number of care providers are turning their attentions toward clinical analytics, now that they've moved past focusing on meaningful use.
