Events & Products FAQs

Click on the questions below for answers to common quandaries about ACDIS' events and products!

How is ACDIS PRO different from the ACDIS Pocket Guide? Do they contain the same information?

ACDIS PRO is updated in real-time with revised guidance and new conditions added throughout the year—no need to wait for next year’s book. ACDIS PRO is also customizable via bookmarks, notes, links, etc. ACDIS PRO is convenient for on-the-go-use because it will confirm to any electronic device—whether that be desktop, laptop, smartphone, or tablet. ACDIS PRO is also searchable—no need to flip through pages to find what you need. Additionally, ACDIS PRO includes access to information related to the patient safety indicators (PSIs) contained in the PSI 90 composite. CDI specialists can use this information to determine which encounters can be excluded from a quality measure and help boost their organization’s quality scores, potentially impacting its reimbursement rates.

ACDIS PRO contains all of the information that is in the ACDIS Pocket Guide. Because it is updated in real-time, you’ll have access to new regulatory guidance and newly added conditions sooner than you would if you waited for the next edition of the book to publish. Additionally, because ACDIS PRO is online, it doesn’t have the same limits a book has, so it includes information that is not in the ACDIS Pocket Guides, such as sample queries, conditions exclusive to ACDIS PRO, and information related to PSIs.

Do you offer virtual versions of the ACDIS conference? If not, do you have other virtual event options?

Unfortunately, ACDIS is unable to offer a virtual option for the ACDIS conference. Following the conference, ACDIS does offer a separate virtual event featuring recordings of one track of the conference, called the ACDIS Encore event. More information about this event will be available following each year’s in-person event.

ACDIS also offers occasional free virtual events and webinars which will be advertised on the ACDIS website in the “Free Resources” section and in CDI Strategies.
