Clinical Validation in the CDI Chart Review

Sunday, October 24 – Monday, October 25, 2021 | Dallas, TX

Clinical validation may be a buzzword in CDI, but it’s for good reason. Clinical validation is the secret sauce of CDI, and a core function. Traditionally, the query process has focused on adding specificity to an already documented diagnosis, or obtaining a diagnosis based on clinical evidence within the health record. However, due to the EHR providers are increasingly documenting diagnoses without corroborative clinical evidence. In addition, deep CDI review of provider notes, medication administration records, labs, diagnostics, and ancillary notes can result in the identification of clinical diagnoses that often lack sufficient supporting clinical indicators, monitoring, and/or treatment to meet the UHDDS definition of reportable diagnosis.

What’s a CDI professional to do? That’s where clinical validation comes in.

Join not one but TWO of ACDIS’ CDI Boot Camp instructors as they tag-team this exciting pre-conference event. Materials are culled and vetted from the popular new Clinical Validation in CDI Boot Camp. Deepen and strengthen your chart reviews, dig into critical clinical indicators and chart clues, and learn from rich instructor-to-peer and peer-to-peer discussions at the end of each day of class. Clinical validation is about identifying both missed opportunities (undocumented diagnoses) and validating documented diagnoses that lack support. Learn how to do both and improve your critical thinking skills in this can’t miss class!
