CDI professionals need a day-to-day reference when conducting their medical record reviews—one that can provide trusted clinical indicators for compliant and effective physician queries and at-a-glance, easy-to-use comorbidity lists.

The ACDIS Pocket Guide is the essential resource for regulatory and coding guidance, IPPS reimbursement updates, compliant query best practices and standards, clinical validation, and diagnostic definitions. Co-written by Laurie Prescott, ACDIS’s interim director and CDI education director, and Dr. James Manz, a practicing physician steeped in the latest physician documentation terminology, the ACDIS Pocket Guide is a winning combination of practical, tailored CDI tips and resources and clinical, regulatory, and coding guidance adapted from the official sources.
