The Association of Clinical Documentation Integrity Specialists (ACDIS) will host its first-ever hybrid annual conference October 25-28, 2021 in Dallas, TX

It’s been said that the ACDIS annual conference feels like a family reunion… we’re excited and ready to come together, learn, and take the next great step forward in advancing the CDI profession!

“One day at a time, one step at a time.”

After a year in which the world endured unique and trying circumstances, the ACDIS team is excited to be stepping forward, leaning in, gathering the lessons learned, and presenting them at a hybrid in person and virtual conference in October, with the goal of making the CDI profession stronger than ever.

“It’s been said that the ACDIS annual conference feels like a family reunion! After a year in which our beloved in person event was cancelled, we’re excited ready take the next great step forward in advancing the CDI profession and celebrate!” says Brian Murphy, director of the association.

In 2021, the ACDIS conference agenda includes cutting-edge education across more than 60 CDI-focused presentations and four concurrent tracks focused on:

1. Coding and clinical concerns

2. Management and professional development

3. Regulatory changes and challenges

4. Outpatient CDI and much more

Attendees can also choose from three pre-conference events, held October 24-25, being taught by some of the leading names in CDI education and innovation. Topics include:

1. The Physician Advisor’s Role in CDI

2. CDI Management Essentials

3. Clinical Validation in the CDI Chart Review

“This year’s conference kicks off with an amazing keynote session from Nicole Fox, MD, MPH, FACS, CPE, a trauma surgeon, surgical intensivist, and medical director of CDI for Cooper University Health Care,” Murphy adds. “She discusses experiences and lessons learned on the front lines of the pandemic, and offers strategies to enhance one’s ability to evolve, adapt, and thrive in times of personal and professional upheaval.”

And that’s just the beginning. As part of its first-ever hybrid experience, ACDIS is offering access to supplemental online-only bonus presentations to all attendees in November to further their CDI education through the end of the year.
