The 2021 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.

What’s New:

  • New section on ICD-10-PCS, including an introduction to the PCS coding system and how it works.
  • 70 conditions including new listings for COVID-19, EVALI-vape related lung injuries, cytokine storm and functional quadriplegia
  • New coding clinic guidance and IPPS updates.
  • And more!
