ACDIS update: New poll examines CDI ROI expectations

CDI Strategies - Volume 12, Issue 47

ACDIS does not take an official stance on what the expected return on investment (ROI) for a CDI program should be, instead advocating for a more holistic approach to CDI goals which may ultimately reduce the ROI in some respects, but reflects greater medical record accuracy overall.

However, ACDIS has done polls in the past to take the pulse of the industry as far as the expectations placed on CDI departments. Since the last poll was conducted in 2014, ACDIS decided to take stock of this topic again.

The new poll asks what organizations expect CDI programs’ ROI to be annually and offers a range of financial ranges to choose from—from less than $100,000 to more than $5 million. We would greatly appreciate your feedback on this topic. 

The poll results will be shared with the ACDIS community in aggregate when the polling question has closed.
