Diving Deep: 2022 CDI Week State of the Industry
Did you know that currently, nearly 62% are 100% remote and another 32% said they have a hybrid program of some sort, leaving less than 6% fully onsite? Did you know that nearly 68% of respondents are currently involved in the denials management or appeals process, up nearly 10% from the last time this topic was covered in a survey in 2020?
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, more than 700 respondents answered questions regarding productivity, staff engagement in the remote setting, physician engagement, outpatient CDI and risk adjustment, and denial trends and CDI involvement.
Join ACDIS Associate Editorial Director Linnea Archibald, as she hosts a panel with CDI Experts, featuring an in-depth discussion on the state of the CDI industry and an open question and answer session.
Upon completion of this program, attendees will be able to:
- Explain the state of the CDI industry related to productivity, staff engagement in the remote setting, physician engagement, outpatient CDI and risk adjustment, and denial trends and CDI involvement
- 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
*This program has been approved for 1.5 continuing education units towards fulfilling the requirements of the Certified Clinical Documentation Specialist (CCDS) certification and CCDS-O (outpatient) certification, offered as a service of the Association of Clinical Documentation Integrity Specialists (ACDIS).*
