CDI Competency Assessment (Extended)

HC Pro

Course Overview

The CDI Competency Assessment is the perfect tool to self-assess your CDI educational needs, or to evaluate your staff to pinpoint areas where they will benefit from education. This 100-question, easy-to-use online assessment tool is divided into four sections:

  • General knowledge
  • Clinical content
  • ICD-10-PCS
  • Quality and risk adjustment

As students work through the assessment, they are provided feedback on their level of proficiency for each topic. Use the “Reading Your Results” guide to identify areas of strength and areas for further study and review.
