CCDS exam results for those who took the exam since January 18 will be issued at the end of March. The sample size of candidates who took the exam between January 18 and March 3 does not give the exam committee a sufficient sample on which to base a comprehensive review.

This extended delay allows ACDIS and AMP, the company that administers the exam, to collect significant data to safeguard the integrity of the exam and ensure that experienced clinical documentation professionals with demonstrated ability hold the CCDS certification.

We thank you for your continued patience as we work diligently to ensure the CCDS credential remains the preeminent demonstration of clinical documentation improvement specialists’ excellence.
