Course Overview

This course will focus on the learning needs for the new or beginning Clinical Documentation Improvement (CDI) specialist in a short term acute care setting (hospital). While the healthcare provider can be a physician, advance practice nurse, registered nurse, or physician assistant, for clarity this course will reference the physician as the healthcare provider. Many of these concepts can be applied to other healthcare settings.

  • Demonstrate a familiarity with the AHIMA/ACDIS 2013 physician query practice brief
