ACDIS Work Group members spent considerable energy creating the 2010 Physician Query Benchmarking Survey which launched this week. Since the publication of the 2009 survey many changes in the CDI profession have taken place: AHIMA released special guidance for CDI programs, recovery audit contracts began medical necessity reviews, and more facilities have begun to implement electronic query systems. The new two-page, 42-question survey aims to gather information about how CDI query practices have changed in light of these developments.

It is your collective response that helps illustrate common industry best practices regarding the roles and expectations of CDI programs and their staffs. Please help us meet your needs by completing the survey by Wednesday, November 24, at 5 p.m. The results will be shared with ACDIS members in a special report in January 2011.
Editor’s note: ACDIS members can read the 2009 survey online.
