The Association of Clinical Documentation Improvement Specialists (ACDIS) is currently seeking speakers to present at the 2018 ACDIS 11th Annual Conference, to be held May 21-24 in San Antonio, Texas at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center. The deadline for submissions has been extended to September 25 to provide additional time for those affected by Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma to collect their thoughts and submit their applications.
We seek speakers to present on all aspects of clinical documentation improvement (CDI). Advanced CDI sessions geared for mature programs are particularly welcome and will receive additional consideration but the 2018 Conference Committee also seeks to meet the needs of those new to the profession and those at an intermediate level.
CDI and/or HIM/coding professionals typically present at ACDIS, but we also welcome practicing physicians, case management and quality personnel, healthcare auditors, lawyers, and other professionals with a tie to or an interest in CDI. Accepted speakers and co-presenters will have their admission fee waived.
Based on the learning needs identified by participants of the successful 2017 ACDIS Conference, several topics have emerged as areas of great interest within the ACDIS community, including two new tracks—outpatient CDI and pediatric CDI.

The annual ACDIS Conference features unparalleled networking, the ACDIS Achievement Awards, and six concurrent educational tracks with a diverse range of sessions, covering best practices for staff management, physician engagement, clinically focused chart reviews, and critical regulatory updates to improve every aspect of your CDI department.
