Inpatient and Outpatient Best Practices
Accurate clinical documentation not only tells the patient's story, it is at the core of quality reporting, physician report cards, reimbursement, public health data, and disease tracking and trending. Gain the skills you need to move your organization's clinical documentation improvement (CDI) program forward by attending the AHIMA CDI Academy, January 25–27, in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The Puerto Rico Health Information Management Association (PRHIMA) is pleased to host this event in conjunction with the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA).
This comprehensive, three-day program assists CDI professionals in implementing best practices at their organizations through the use of real world examples and exercises, covering both inpatient and outpatient settings. From day one, this interactive meeting will encourage discussion and active learning to drive home essential CDI knowledge and skills.
Some of the topics covered include:
- Review key coding guidelines of principal/primary and secondary diagnoses
- Examine opportunities for CDI in the outpatient setting
- Realize the impact of coded data on secondary data uses such as meaningful use incentives, quality measures, and public health reporting
Attendees can also choose between various breakout sessions on specific clinical and coding topics. This program also suggests paths for those looking for a career change or enhancement (including coding professionals, transcriptionists, nurses, physicians, and others).
Whether you are new to CDI or an experienced CDI professional ready to take your program to the next level, the Academy offers unique content you can apply to your situation.
