Featured solution:

Today’s featured ACDIS solution is the 2021 ACDIS national conference.

After a year in which we had to cancel our 2020 event, ACDIS is stepping forward to make ourselves and the CDI profession stronger than ever.

Join us October 24-28 in Dallas, Texas, for the return of the ACDIS national conference. We’re offering cutting-edge education across more than 60 CDI-focused presentations in our first-ever hybrid event. Our in-person event at the Sheraton Dallas Hotel features four concurrent tracks focused on coding and clinical concerns, management and professional development, regulatory changes and challenges, outpatient CDI, and much more. In a new value-added supplement this year, we’re offering online-only bonus presentations that participants can enjoy when they return home.
