ICD-10 Competency Exam for CDI


CDI specialists need to be proficient in ICD-10 prior to its implementation in order to successfully perform their duties. Given the ICD-10 delay, CDI specialists will want to show employers/managers that they’re ICD-10 ready even though they may have completed training months ago. With this test, specialists can show their employer (or a prospective employer) that they have achieved a baseline competency in ICD-10.

This 75-question competency exam provides a robust test of CDI specialists’ ICD-10 know-how. It allows CDI specialists to measure their level of knowledge acquisition and ensure they understand key query opportunities for additional documentation specificity prior to the new ICD-10 compliance date of October 1, 2015.

Their exam score and certificate of completion will serve as proof that they are ready for ICD-10. In order to pass, exam takers must score an 80% or higher to pass. Those who do so will receive a certificate.
