Level of Program:

With more than 2,600 code changes in effect as of October 1, CDI professionals need to know which diagnoses require additional medical record documentation in order to effectively query physicians. They'll need familiarity with National Institutes of Health stroke scale scores, hypertensive heart disease, diabetes, and pancreatitis, among other items.

Join ACDIS’ trusted CDI education leaders Laurie L. Prescott, MSN, RN, CCDS, CDIP, CRC, and Allen Frady, RN, BSN, CCDS, CCS, for this 90-minute program to learn more about which code set changes offer the greatest opportunities for CDI professionals—and which ones present the most urgent needs for physician engagement and education.
