ACDIS Precon: What you need to know before you go

More than 100 people signed up for the preconference “ICD-9 Coding Essentials: What every CDI specialist needs to know.” I’m personally looking forward to learning all about how CDI fits into the coding realm from Shannon McCall, RHIA, CCS, CPC-I.

I’ve participated in her Boot Camps before and know firsthand that she is a tremendous teacher. Students from her previous courses rave about her capabilities in their evaluations so I’m sure we’ll all learn a lot and have a good time, too. Last I spoke with Shannon she was working on gathering some Las Vegas themed music to help wake us up on Wednesday.

Speaking of which, if you are among the 100+ pre-conference attendees, head down to registration around 8 a.m. Grab a muffin or bagel and some coffee and take a minute to look over the bookstore. We’ll have an hour to get 100 people registered so be patient with us. Class starts at 9 a.m.
