AHIMA is collaborating with the American Medical Association (AMA) to offer an interactive, one-day outpatient clinical documentation improvement (CDI) workshop. The workshop equips attendees with the tools they need to feel confident working in outpatient CDI settings. It will provide practical resources to those that are brand new to CDI, those that are developing a new outpatient CDI program, and to those who plan to expand an existing CDI program. The workshop will begin by covering the principles of CDI and its evolution to the outpatient setting, followed by the drivers and benefits of outpatient CDI, and wrapping up the morning with the structure, goals and follow-up for outpatient CDI programs. The afternoon will be focused on documentation drivers of ICD-10-CM diagnosis codes and CPT procedure codes. Attendees will participate in numerous hands-on case studies that will illustrate the continuum of high-quality clinical documentation resulting in high quality coded data, which ultimately results in high quality patient care and outcomes.
