With the transition to ICD-10-CM/PCS and the implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act transforming fee-for-service into quality-based alternative payment models and population payment, having a trained physician advisor for your clinical documentation improvement (CDI) program has never been so important.

The Physician Advisor’s Role in CDI Boot Camp prepares physician advisors to successfully fulfill the duties of their job. They’ll walk away with a firm understanding of ICD-10-CM/PCS fundamentals, ICD-10’s applications to inpatient and outpatient payment and severity and risk adjustment, clarification opportunities inherent to inpatient and outpatient CDI, techniques for engaging the medical staff in CDI, how to identify common documentation deficiencies in the medical record, and new avenues for CDI program growth.

For 2016, we’ve updated the two-day Boot Camp to focus heavily on new ICD-10-CM/PCS documentation requirements and how to ensure full and accurate physician documentation to properly code records in ICD-10. We’ve also added new sections on inpatient quality measures and the physician advisor’s role in Medicare’s hospital and physician value-based purchasing programs. Participants will leave with a firm understanding of Medicare severity diagnosis-related groups (MS-DRG), Hierarchical Condition Categories (HCC), AHRQ’s patient safety indicators (PSI), and other metrics pertinent to their enterprise. This Boot Camp also covers documentation and clinical issues unique to pediatric patients.
