ICD-10 Monitor: Talk Ten Tuesday
The director of the Association of Clinical Documentation Improvement Specialists (ACDIS), Brian Murphy, CPC was invited to provide an overview of the upcoming conference. Taking place in Las Vegas, the 7th annual ACDIS conference will focus largely on ICD-10. Originally the conference was scheduled to take place 5 months prior to the ICD-10 mandate, but ICD-10 will now follow the conference by about 17 months.
When asked what issue in healthcare is on the mind of most, Brian responded, “Regardless of the implementation date of ICD-10, clinical documentation improvement, or CDI, is a tremendously important [relatively] new profession in healthcare.”
The conference officially kicks off this evening. Listen to the podcast.
