Back by popular demand, ACDIS and HCPro’s lead coding and CDI instructors!‬‬

If you’re looking for ways to expand your CDI department into outpatient settings and services—all of which can impact risk scores—you’ll find it in the Risk Adjustment Documentation and Coding Boot Camp. This special two-day version of ACDIS’ popular boot camp reviews both inpatient and outpatient coding guidelines and their application to the CMS-Hierarchical Condition Category (HCC) methodology, including detailed instruction on the individual HCCs and identification of opportunities for improved documentation. Clinical scenarios are used to demonstrate concepts and validate learning. 

This boot camp goes beyond just knowing how to code for a condition. It explores where coding information may be obtained as well as where to look for documentation deficiencies to improve overall risk scores. Just as implementing CDI departments improves documentation for DRG assignment, this Boot Camp uses the same principles to improve documentation for risk adjustment. It will also offer strategies to reduce your facility’s vulnerability to Risk Adjustment Data Validation (RADV) audits.

Who should attend?

  • CDI specialists
  • CDI managers and directors
  • HIM managers and professionals
  • Inpatient and outpatient coding managers and professionals
  • Medicare Advantage payers
  • Quality professionals
  • Physicians and nonphysician healthcare professionals
  • Physician practice managers
