The Clinical Documentation Improvement Specialist's Guide to ICD-10, 2nd Edition

Now in its second edition, The Clinical Documentation Improvement Specialist’s Guide to ICD-10 is the only guide to address ICD-10 from the CDI point of view. Written by CDI experts and ICD-10 Boot Camp instructors, it explains the ICD-10 documentation requirements and clinical indicators of commonly reported diagnoses and the codes associated with those conditions. In it you’ll find the specific documentation requirements to appropriately code a variety of conditions.

The CDI Specialist’s Guide to ICD-10, Second Edition, not only outlines the changes coming in October 2014, it provides detailed information on how to assess staffing needs, training requirements, and implementation strategies. The authors—an ICD-10 certified coder and CDI specialist—collaborated to create a comprehensive selection of ICD-10 sample queries that facilities can download and use to jumpstart their ICD-10 documentation improvement efforts.

Develop the expertise and comfort level you need to manage this important industry change and help your organization make a smooth transition.
