A number of items have recently been added to the ACDIS Forms & Tools Library. If you have worked hard on revising your query forms, developed a toolkit or physician education training poster, or established a procedure for auditing physician queries, we encourage you to share your hard work with your peers. Our Forms & Tools Review Committee meets regularly to review donated items and assess them against current industry best practices and existing library items. To submit, email ACDIS Associate Director Melissa Varnavas at

Recently posted items include:
   Posters with documentation tips for discharge summaries, respiratory failure, kidney disease, hemiparesis, and chest pain
   Tip cards covering general documentation improvement items as well as heart failure core measure documentation and medical necessity for joint replacement
   Presentations and education regarding documentation and coding complications, AHRQ patient safety indicator documentation needs, respiratory and heart failure documentation basics
Over the coming weeks members will note some changes to the library as outdated items are removed and document titles are altered to help you quickly identify the document type and its content.
As a reminder, these donated materials are available to ACDIS members with their membership. When adapting materials for use at your facility, review these documents with your compliance, medical staff, and coding teams.
