Self-funded

We use a data-led approach to identify potential revenue optimisation opportunities. Where available, these revenue opportunities can then be used to sustainably fund the program.

Modular

Solutions are designed in modules that work to enhance existing CDI initiatives and build on one another. The modular delivery approach allows for embedding culture change as the program evolves.

Practical

The iMedX CDI team actively work in hospitals today. We know that each hospital is unique with subtleties in culture that need to be understood to drive effective outcomes.

Pillars of the solution

Understand

We work with you to assess the effectiveness of your documentation practices today to establish a baseline. Then use this to identify specific CDI focus areas for program evolution, and most critically look for revenue maximisation opportunities to fund your program.

Enhance

In partnership with your team, we deliver program modules that align to where you’re at in your journey. 

Sustain

Mentoring and support to mitigate program degradation and ensure sustainable culture change.
