Description

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 MSDRGs 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. CEUs and lunch are provided.

This event will take place in the Mylander Conference Room.
