The essential CDI resource for outpatient professionals

CDI professionals need a day-to-day reference when conducting their outpatient medical record reviews – one that can provide trusted clinical indicators for compliant and effective physician clarifications, and at-a-glance, easy-to-use diagnosis and Hierarchical Condition Category (HCC) references. The 2021 ACDIS Outpatient Pocket Guide is the essential resource for outpatient coding guidance, HCC updates, compliant query best practices and standards, E/M requirements, and diagnostic definitions.

This is the perfect resource as you look to grow your outpatient CDI program and continue to ensure your outpatient coding is in compliance.

Co-written by ACDIS’ CDI Education Director Laurie Prescott, RN, MSN, CCDS, CDIP, CRC, CCDS-O, James Manz, MD, CCDS-O, a practicing physician at the Mayo Clinic steeped in the latest physician documentation terminology, and Karen Newhouser, RN, BSN, CCDS, CCDS-O, CCS, CDIP, CCM, Clinical Documentation Integrity Content Manager for AMN Revenue Cycle Solutions, the 2021 ACDIS Outpatient Pocket Guide is a winning combination of practical, tailored CDI tips and resources, helpful references including ICD-10-CM code mappings organized by HCC, and clinical,  regulatory, and coding guidance adapted from the official sources.

Each condition 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.
