ACDIS update: ACDIS Regulatory Committee posts latest “hot topics”
The ACDIS Regulatory Committee recently posted its topics for October and November including:
- Right middle cerebral artery infarction and bilateral carotid artery occlusion query generation to clarify if occlusion/stenosis was present at both carotid and MCA sites, requesting follow-up clarification from the American Hospital Association (AHA).
- Alcohol pancreatitis and alcohol dependence, requesting follow-up AHA clarification.
The ACDIS Regulatory Committee reviews regulatory policy, coding, and clinical updates, commenting to agencies on behalf of ACDIS, and provides summary, interpretation, and analysis to ACDIS members.
The Committee kicked off a new initiative for 2020, in which the committee selects common questions or topics submitted by ACDIS members, then investigates and researches the topic to offer the most up-to-date and appropriate advice.
ACDIS members can find these ongoing updates on the “Regulatory Committee Insight” page, located under the “Thought Leadership” tab.
Note any advice or findings represent the conclusions and opinions from the Regulatory Committee. The advice and guidance do not replace or supersede any direction or guidelines set forth by your organization, facility, or the Cooperating Parties. Consult your organization’s leadership and/or administration before implementing changes that may conflict with your organizational standards.
