ACDIS Symposium: Outpatient CDI

May 7 – 8, 2023 | Chicago, IL

It’s back!!!

For the first time since 2019, the ACDIS Symposium: Outpatient CDI is back for an in-person experience!

The ACDIS Symposium: Outpatient CDI is focused exclusively on clinical documentation integrity (CDI) efforts in the outpatient and ambulatory setting and features innovative sessions and dynamic speakers you won’t find anywhere else.

Dedicated to the fastest-growing area of CDI, this two-day event includes diverse sessions for both managers/leaders and clinical chart reviewers, including how to get started in the ambulatory setting, query techniques and nuances, metrics and analytics, staff training, and demonstrating return on investment.

Plus, take advantage of the many networking opportunities to connect with and learn from your peers!

Smaller and more intimate than the annual ACDIS Conference, the ACDIS Symposium: Outpatient CDI is the perfect place to ask your questions about outpatient CDI, listen to case studies from organizations with successful programs, and equip yourself with practical resources and information that you can implement immediately.

If you want to stick around for the ACDIS National Conference immediately following the Symposium, special discounts are available!


  • NETWORKING RECEPTION: Enjoy a social hour at the end of Day 1 and get to know your peers across the country as you browse our exhibit hall.
  • EXHIBITORS: Visit the exhibit hall dedicated exclusively to outpatient CDI and find out what innovative solutions could be available to you.
  • KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Ignite your fire with a dynamic opening keynote speaker.
  • FABULOUS DESTINATION: The hotel is a destination in its own right! Experience a fantastic location in the heart of downtown Chicago, and enjoy sites like Millennium Park, Navy Pier, and the scenic Riverwalk with ease.

Keeping the Flame: How to Stay Motivated No Matter What

Denise Ryan

Denise Ryan

One of the greatest challenges we all face is keeping ourselves motivated. This is particularly difficult and extremely important with our fast-paced high responsibility jobs today. It’s easy to lose enthusiasm and get burned out, stressed out, and finally—checked out. This high-energy session gives attendees six steps for getting the fire back in their lives professionally and personally. It’s not just a motivational speech; it’s a method attendees can apply long after the speech.
