My heart is already warming to thoughts of Nashville in springtime, the site of our 6th annual conference—May 21–23 at the Renaissance Nashville Hotel. We expanded this year’s conference to two and a half days to accommodate more of the great speakers and sessions you’ve come to expect from ACDIS. And we’ve kept the price of the conference the same.

If you have not had an opportunity to attend an ACDIS conference in the past you are definitely in for terrific educational and networking experience. More than 800 of your peers have already registered and we still have room for more.
What types of sessions will you find at the conference? Here’s a sample:
  • Understanding and implementing the new definition of malnutrition. This session will review the evolution of how clinicians have traditionally assessed a patient’s nutritional status revealing the incompleteness and inaccuracy of prior definitions that are no longer valid in today s hospital environment. It will also review the new ASPEN consensus guidelines and describe the physical components of today s clinically- based nutritional status evaluation. It will also describe the challenges faced in gaining acceptance and use of the new definition and provide strategies that were employed to achieve success in a 500-bed academic medical center.
  • A panel session presenting results of a large-scale study conducted by the University HealthSystem Consortium to assess the accuracy and consistency of the documentation and coding of Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality Patient Safety Indicators.
  • A number of ICD-10 sessions, from specific documentation requirements under the new coding system to assessing your vulnerabilities and developing an educational action plan.
  • Sessions on merging CDI processes and procedures with electronic health records.
To register, and for a complete look at the agenda and our 2013 speakers, visit the conference website.
See you there!
