ACDIS welcomes Adelaide M. La Rosa, RN, BSN, CCDS, AHIMA-Approved ICD-10-CM/PCS Trainer and Ambassador, and director of the CDI program at St. Francis Hospital in Roslyn, NY, as presenter of the ICD-10 for CDI Boot Camp pre-conference event May 8-9.

LaRosa has a deep understanding of ICD-10, both at the conceptual level and in CDI-specific training needs, having assisted in the development of the ICD-10 for CDI Boot Camp materials and serving as a reviewer for this unique course. At St. Francis Hospital, she provides training in ICD-10-CM/PCS to 47 staff members, chairs the ICD-10 steering committee, and is responsible for overseeing RAC and third party DRG audit review findings and appeals processes.
 
She has 28 years of clinical healthcare and leadership experience, was the founder of the Long Island, NY, ACDIS local chapter, whose membership now includes 11 hospitals, and was a recipient of the 2010 CDI Professional Achievement Award at the third annual ACDIS conference.
 
Due to demand for this program and for The Physician Advisor's Role in CDI preconference, The Manchester Grand Hyatt San Diego is currently sold out of guest rooms during preconference nights (May 8-9). Additional rooms are available at The Embassy Suites, a block away, at a cost of $179 for conference attendees. Please be sure to mention that you are with the ACDIS Conference when booking your room. Additionally, you may want to check www.hotels.com and www.Travelocity.com for more options.
 
Rooms are still available at the Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego during the main conference May 10-11. Nearly 600 CDI-related professionals registered for the conference prior to last Friday’s early registration deadline. The deadline to qualify for the $199 discount room rate at the Grand Hyatt is Monday, April 16.
