After months of dedicated effort, The Clinical Documentation Improvement (CDI) Roadmap has been finalized and is available free to ACDIS members on the ACDIS website. The CDI Roadmap is intended to provide industry standards and best practices for the establishment and ongoing maintenance of a CDI program. It includes a timeline outlining a four-step phase for implementing a CDI program in a short term acute care hospital. Also included are a series of informational white papers, supporting documents, and sample policies, procedures, and forms.

Presently The CDI Roadmap includes guidance relevant to pre-CDI program implementation and implementation phases; phases for ongoing maintenance and advanced CDI/program expansion will be added at a later date. It was created by a volunteer board including:
  • Cheryl Ericson
  • Beth Kennedy
  • Glenn Krauss
  • Gail Marini
  • Lynne Spryszak
  • Donna Wilson
The documents have been reviewed and approved by the ACDIS Advisory Board. However, these are sample documents and policies, intended to be tailored to fit the individual culture and processes of a given facility.
