Designed as a pathway to future Certified Clinical Documentation
Specialist (CCDS) designation
BEDFORD, MASSACHUSETTS – May 31, 2018 – The Association of Clinical Documentation Improvement Specialists (ACDIS) announces that Libman Education is now an authorized reseller of the ACDIS CDI Apprenticeship.
The ACDIS CDI Apprenticeship is a certificate program comprised of foundational CDI education paired with a review of core compliance and ethical principles. Candidates who pass the final exam receive a certificate of CDI foundational training and may designate themselves as an ACDIS-Approved CDI Apprentice. Designation as an ACDIS CDI Apprentice demonstrates to potential employers that an individual has foundational knowledge of CDI.
“We are excited about this opportunity to expand our relationship with professionals exploring the CDI domains of knowledge,” says Susan Pepple, VP and COO at Libman Education. “Coding and CDI, both critically important to the success of our healthcare institutions, will continue to evolve in response to changes in technology, reimbursement, and workforce requirements. This partnership with ACDIS reflects our belief that the Revenue Cycle requires a team approach embracing all operational areas that impact revenue. Many of our 50,000+ HIM Professionals subscribers have indicated a growing interest in CDI and we are pleased to partner with ACDIS to offer a CDI pathway that is consistent with the Libman Education standard of excellence.”
The ACDIS CDI Apprenticeship has also been designed as a pathway to future Certified Clinical Documentation Specialist (CCDS) designation. Candidates interested in obtaining the CCDS credential must fulfil prerequisites, including at least two years of experience in clinical documentation improvement. The ACDIS CDI Apprenticeship can be used as a pathway for progression toward the goal of CCDS certification and those who participate in the ACDIS CDI Apprenticeship receive regular support to continue on the journey.
ACDIS has established a reputation of excellence in CDI resources that spans more than 10 years. “We are excited about working with Libman Education,” says Rebecca Hendren, Associate Director, ACDIS, a Simplified Compliance Healthcare brand. “Through this relationship, Libman Education customers will have access to the ACDIS CDI Apprenticeship as a pathway to CDI competence.”
