The CDI Boot Camp is ACDIS’ premier training for CDI specialists. Trusted by hundreds of CDI specialists as the go-to source for CDI education, this course defines the role of CDI specialists and provides comprehensive training on their responsibilities.

Improve your CDI know-how with ACDIS-endorsed best practices for medical record review and compliant physician querying. Learn the ins and outs of Medicare’s IPPS methodology and how it relates to short-term acute care hospital reimbursement, which is often a focus of CDI efforts. Specifically, participants learn about MS-DRG methodology, including how MS-DRGs are assigned and how documentation affects code assignment and sequencing.

A majority of the Boot Camp is dedicated to exploring diagnoses typically in need of clarification for proper code assignment and MS-DRG assignment. Armed with this knowledge, CDI specialists can credibly query physicians to ensure accurate claims data and reimbursement.

The ICD-10-CM Official Guidelines for Coding and Reporting, as seen from a CDI perspective Diagnoses frequently in need of additional documentation to support accurate code assignment across all major body systems The value of querying the provider for clarification and best practices associated with the query process Tips for educating physicians on the basics of hospital reimbursement under IPPS and the value of complete documentation on organizational and professional profiling IPPS methodology based on MS-DRG assignment and the impact of diagnosis assignment and sequencing on hospital reimbursement CDI benchmarking basics, compliance risks, and professional ethics

The CDI Boot Camp will help you:

CDI Boot Camp—see the difference for yourself!Check out all the benefits of this HCPro Boot Camp:

Custom-designed course materials: Course materials are developed by an adult education expert. The curriculum uses a “how to” approach where participants learn how to apply CDI concepts that they can then customize to their organizational needs. Content is regularly updated based on changing industry practices and participant feedback. 

Live instruction: Classes are taught by an experienced instructor who is credentialed as a CDI professional and works as an industry subject matter expert for ACDIS.

Small class size: We limit the number of course participants in order to maintain a low participant-teacher ratio. This allows us to provide individual instruction as needed when participants find a topic particularly challenging; it also allows time for discussion.

Well-established program: Brought to you by the Association of Clinical Documentation Improvement Specialists (ACDIS), this Boot Camp from the industry’s only dedicated CDI association provides the best-in-class education you expect.
