This year’s ACDIS conference on May 7-9 offers in-depth CDI training to prepare for the forthcoming implementation of ICD-10. It starts with a two-day ICD-10 for CDI Boot Camp pre-conference event, and on day one AHA’s Coding Clinic Executive Editor Nelly Leon-Chisen, RHIA, joins us for the kick-off general session. Then its roll-up your sleeves and get to work time, as Donna Smith, BS, RHIA, takes attendees through the top 20 documentation concerns affecting DRGs changes. Next, participants can ensureg their query processes are up to the challenge with HCPro CDI Education Director, Cheryl Ericson, RN, CCDS, CDIP, and then take a final ICD-10 check-in with noted industry expert Gloryanne Bryant, RHIA, RHIT, CCS, CDIP, CCDS.
Although ICD-10-CM/PCS implementation takes center stage in 2014, numerous other CDI concerns continue to gain in importance. That’s why the conference also offers several sessions targeting quality improvement efforts, program management, healthcare reform, coding and clinical developments, and compliance concerns, as well as expanding your reviews to include psychiatry, obstetrics, and more.
In all we have six different tracks—from new initiatives to program management—more than 30 speakers, and two dozen sessions. For the first time this year we’ll be kicking the program off with an evening pre-conference networking and cocktail reception, during which we’ll award the 2014 CDI Professional of the Year. And it all takes place in one of the nation’s brightest and most entertaining hotspots—Las Vegas.
