2020 ACDIS Pocket Guide: The essential CDI resource

The new 2020 ACDIS Pocket Guide is your essential CDI resource. It includes updates to clinical diagnostic standards, the Official Coding Guidelines, ICD-10-CM codes, CMS-HCCs and CDI critical thinking tips! The 2020 ACDIS Pocket Guide is co-written by ACDIS’ CDI Education Director Laurie Prescott, RN, MSN, CCDS, CDIP, CRC, CCDS-O, and a practicing physician steeped in the latest physician documentation terminology, James Manz, MD, CCDS-O.

Bonus: With every purchase of the 2020 ACDIS Pocket Guide, you’ll also receive access to the content in digital format (Adobe Digital Editions eBook), which will allow you to easily access all content downloaded to your desktop PC or laptop.

The 2020 ACDIS Pocket Guide is divided into six sections – regulatory/coding guidance, IPPS reimbursement updates, including DRG and CC/MCC updates, compliant query best practices and standards, clinical validation and diagnostic definitions, and comorbidity and MS-DRG lists. The majority of the pocket guide is dedicated to clinical validation and diagnostic definitions, which includes an expansive listing of diagnoses significant to CDI practice.

Conditions covered in the Pocket Guide are organized by their Major Diagnostic Category (MDC), and then in alphabetical order. Each diagnosis listed is accompanied by a detailed clinical definition of the condition, clinical indicators that support the presenting condition, including diagnostic criteria and treatment protocols, ICD-10-CM chapter-specific documentation requirements, including the latest coding clinic guidance specific to the condition, CDI critical thinking tips and provider focused education advice related to the diagnoses.
