Association of Clinical Documentation Improvement Specialists, May 12, 2016

Editor’s Note: This Practice Brief supersedes the joint ACDIS/AHIMA February 2013 Practice Brief titled "Guidelines for Achieving a Compliant Query Practice." The only change in this version of the practice brief was to update the Coding Clinic reference from ICD-9-CM to ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS.
