Did you know that only about 24% of CDI professionals round with physicians on the floor as part of their typical duties, or that 65% of CDI departments who have a physician advisor share this person with another department? Did you know that the average amount of new charts reviewed per day by CDI specialists is between six and 10, and only 6% of CDI departments saw a negative impact on their productivity due to remote work during the COVID-19 pandemic? 

The data found within this year’s CDI Week Industry Survey can offer CDI professionals insight not only into their own professional careers but also into the direction of their CDI programs compared to their peers, and trends within the broader CDI industry. 

Each year, the Association of Clinical Documentation Integrity Specialists (ACDIS) surveys CDI professionals nationwide to take the pulse of the CDI industry. This year, just shy of 1,000 respondents answered questions regarding CDI basics, physician engagement, outpatient CDI, productivity, and staffing and professional development. 

Join ACDIS for this upcoming webinar as we unpack the meaning of the survey results and provide additional perspectives via a panel of experts. 

Upon completion of this program, attendees will be able to: 

  • Explain the state of the CDI industry related to CDI basics, physician engagement, outpatient CDI, productivity, and staffing/professional development 
  • Identify areas of potential CDI expansion in the near future based on the survey results
  • Apply survey findings and data to their own CDI programs and work

CCDS/CCDS-O CEU information: This program was approved for one (1) CCDS/CCDS-O continuing education credit through ACDIS. Listeners have until September 16, 2022, to take the survey and receive their free credit. The survey will open after the live webinar event has ended.
