Hi: I am need to provide monthly reports to the CFO about the success of

    We have JATA, and their software drives reports that include a lot of information. The total number of Medicare, nontraditional Medicare and others, and the percent reviewed by CDI. Then the number of queries, the number of physician responses, the number of times the query drove an increase in MCCs, increase in severity, the number and percent of coder/CDI matches and of course, the CMI, for a start.
