Editor’s Note: Mark Dominesey, RN, BSN, MBA, CCDS, CDIP, MCP, presents “Integrating CDI processes with the EHR: Getting it right from the beginning,” on Tuesday, May 22 at 3:15 p.m., in Track 7, Leadership and Department Management. The follow Q&A was conducted by ACDIS Member Services Specialist Penny Richards and was one of a series of articles published on the ACDIS Blog highlighting various speakers and their presentations.

ACDIS: Tell us a bit about your background and how you got into CDI.
 
MD: I was an IT specialist, IT trainer, and a systems administrator prior to becoming a nurse. After a few years as a bedside nurse and a house supervisor, I “stumbled” into CDI. For my first CDI job I was hired to not only do CDI, but also to assist the IT department with HIM application integration into the EHR. I learned that CDI fit my background and professional goals perfectly.
 
ACDIS: Tell us something about yourself that we can share with your future audience.
 
MD: My wife and I have had six children in not quite 10 years of marriage (our oldest is 8 years old). I’m restoring a vintage 1966 small camper and have more than 3,000 books categorized in my home library.
