The Physician Advisor's Role in CDI Boot Camp

Course Overview

With the transition to ICD-10-CM/PCS and the implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act transforming fee-for-service into quality-based alternative payment models and population payment, having a trained physician advisor for your clinical documentation improvement (CDI) program has never been so important. 

The Physician Advisor’s Role in CDI Boot Camp prepares physician advisors to successfully fulfill the duties of their job.

They’ll walk away with a firm understanding of ICD-10-CM/PCS fundamentals, ICD-10’s applications to inpatient and outpatient payment and severity and risk adjustment, clarification opportunities inherent to inpatient and outpatient CDI, techniques for engaging the medical staff in CDI, how to identify common documentation deficiencies in the medical record, and new avenues for CDI program growth.

For 2016, we’ve updated the Boot Camp to focus heavily on new ICD-10-CM/PCS documentation requirements and how to ensure full and accurate physician documentation to properly code records in ICD-10. We’ve also added new sections on inpatient quality measures and the physician advisor’s role in Medicare’s hospital and physician value-based purchasing programs. Participants will leave with a firm understanding of Medicare severity diagnosis-related groups (MS-DRG), Hierarchical Condition Categories (HCC), AHRQ’s Patient Safety Indicators (PSI), and other metrics pertinent to their enterprise. This Boot Camp also covers documentation and clinical issues unique to pediatric patients.

In addition to the above, this intensive two-day Boot Camp:

  • Provides a thorough definition of the role of the physician advisor within a CDI program
  • Reviews the goals and objectives of a CDI program
  • Defines problematic terms in ICD-10-CM/PCS and solutions for resolving clashes between clinical and coding terminologies


The Physician Advisor’s Role in CDI Boot Camp—see the difference for yourself!

Check out all the benefits of this HCPro Boot Camp:

  • Custom-designed course materials: All course materials are custom-developed specifically for this intensive learning format.
  • Hands-on training: Some course modules include case studies that allow you to practice key concepts.
  • Qualified MD instructors: Classes are taught by a physician with experience instructing physician advisors in CDI concepts.
  • Small class size: We limit the number of course participants in order to maintain a low participant-teacher ratio. This allows us to provide individual instruction as needed when participants find a topic to be particularly challenging and allows time for discussion.
  • Practical, real-life concepts: Material presented is redacted from actual medical records and/or scenarios typically encountered during record review. This ensures that the content is real and relevant.
  • Well-established program: Backed by the Association of Clinical Documentation Improvement Specialists (ACDIS), this Boot Camp provides the same great education you've come to rely on.
