Additionally, our proprietary case prioritization algorithm focuses our team’s effort on the most important cases first, ensuring that the cases which have the biggest impact on Case Mix Index receive the most attention. The Sandiola team continually collaborates with the hospital staff in real-time to ensure all cases are correctly documented in the electronic medical record and CDI and Coding best practices are shared.
