Inpatient CDI Course 

Medicare Severity Adjusted DRGs (MS-DRGs) requires timely, effective clinical documentation improvement education. Annual updates to the MS-DRG system, released October 1st of each year should also be an educational priority to ensure outcomes data and reimbursement accuracy. When coupled with the need for complete and accurate documentation to support risk adjustment that is critical for risk adjusted Value Based Purchasing data, every hospital must have a robust CDI program. In addition, the entire curriculum for CDI has been found to be a much needed refresher for client hospitals who have participated in initial CDI education provided by ACS.  

Course Presenters:

  • Deborah K. Hale, CCS, CCDS 
  • Susan Wallace, MEd, RHIA, CCS, CCDS, CDIP, FAHIMA

The sessions cover the drivers and benefits of outpatient CDI and discuss the outpatient structure, goals and action plans for multiple outpatient service areas.

Outpatient Surgery Course

With more and more surgical procedures performed in the outpatient setting, a strong outpatient surgery coding team has never been more valuable to the bottom line. Surgical CPT coding can be challenging for even the most experienced coder. It can be downright scary for the newbie! Let our staff assist with the onboarding process of new outpatient surgery coders or those seasoned coders who just need a refresher. We start with the basics but also offer several specialty area coding courses specifically designed for the outpatient hospital setting. Success is a journey. Success for the outpatient surgery coder starts here!
