ACDIS update: Meet the ACDIS PRO

CDI Strategies - Volume 14, Issue 50

Last month we asked you, our CDI geniuses to help us come up with the best name for our new ACDIS Pocket Guide Online Tool. And you absolutely responded! We received over 125 submissions, and we are now thrilled to unveil the official name. Meet the all new: ACDIS PRO (Pocket Resource Online)

Your CDI Virtual Companion!

This new, fully customizable, easy to navigate online portal can be accessed on any device—pull it up on your phone in a meeting to make sure you have the right code, access it on the go while talking to a physician, or from your office. With the ability to add your own personal notes directly into conditions for easy reference —this all-encompassing online tool will become your favorite reference.
