Association for Clinical Documentation Improvement Specialists (ACDIS) Finalizing Requirements for Professional Certification
Date:11/8/2008

With its membership pushing 2,000 members, ACDIS--the Association of Clinical Documentation Improvement Specialists--passes its one-year anniversary and sets its sights on professional certification for members at its May 2009 annual conference in Las Vegas. In October, a 12-member board of experts in the clinical documentation improvement (CDI) industry met at the ACDIS headquarters in Marblehead, MA, to begin crafting the qualification and testing process for the certification exam, which will launch in May at the annual meeting in Las Vegas.

Marblehead, MA (PRWEB) November 8, 2008 -- Over the last several months, a 12-member board of experts in the clinical documentation improvement (CDI) industry has been working to document the competencies and professional tasks associated with the profession of clinical documentation improvement specialists. In October, the group met at ACDIS headquarters in Marblehead, MA, to begin turning those foundation documents into the qualification and testing process for the certification exam.

Their efforts will culminate in May 2009 at the annual ACDIS conference in Las Vegas, when qualified candidates will sit for the first certification exam and have the opportunity to add the CCDS (Certified Clinical Documentation Specialist) credential to their names.

"ACDIS members have been looking for professional recognition, a further definition of their competencies and skills," says Brian Murphy, CPC, ACDIS director. "The committee is building a professional certification program and credential based upon both training and field experience. It's a level of recognition that is overdue in the field and enthusiastically anticipated by ACDIS members."

The 12 members of the certification board come from diverse backgrounds including nursing, HIM/coding, case management, and quality.
