ACDIS has extended the application deadline for poster session presentations to January 29, 2016.

Have you thought about presenting a poster at the 2016 ACDIS conference in Atlanta? We invite you to apply to present a poster!

Our poster session is a popular event, always well-received by conference attendees, and is a great opportunity for you to showcase your organization’s CDI program and its success with a national audience. In addition, poster presenters save $200 on their ACDIS conference registration.

To give you an idea of what you might present, here is a partial list of topics from last year (you can also view posters from previous years in our Forms & Tools Library):

  • CDI process improvement initiatives
  • CDI lessons learned
  • Audits and interventions to improve pediatric documentation
  • Documentation opportunities
  • Audit risks in cerebral edema and metabolic encephalopathy
  • CDI and Coding working as a team
  • Calculate and graph financial impact of CDI activities
  • Continued physician engagement for your CDI program
  • Query as part of the medical record
  • Oncology scenarios using ICD-10 coding
  • Malnutrition non-blinded study of two (2) inpatient units
  • ICD-10 education for office based providers
  • Integration, collaboration and communication
  • Documenting pneumonia and respiratory disease
  • Effective use of CDI in denial process

Maximum size allowed is 48 inches wide by 36 inches tall (anything larger will be turned away). Posters will be on display throughout the conference. Presenters are required to be on site for a dedicated time block (an hour or two) to speak with conference attendees about their poster. Presenters may bring handouts (but these are not required). We’ll take a photo of each poster and post it along with a one-page description (due from each presenter) on the ACDIS web site following the conference.

Click this link to download the application off the ACDIS web site. The conference committee will review all of the applications and select those ideas for conference presentation.

We will approve one poster per facility (unless space allows, in which case posters will be approved based on application submission date). Presenters receive a $200 discount on their conference registration fee. The discount applies to one person regardless of the number of a people involved in the presentation.
