Thursday, Sept. 21, 1-2 p.m. EST.

It’s frequently been said (in the context of clinical medicine) that children are not just little adults. You can’t treat them the same way, even with a similar diagnosis.

So why should pediatric CDI programs be any different?

Pediatric CDI brings with it a unique array of clinical concerns, MS-DRG wrinkles, and provider buy-in considerations. But if you aren’t involved in this space you’re missing out on huge opportunities to improve quality and financial outcomes.

Join Norwood for this free 60-minute webinar on Thursday, Sept. 21 (1-2 p.m. EST). You’ll hear from two CDI specialists deeply versed in pediatric CDI. Sandra Love, MSN, RN, CCDS, CCDS-O, CPC, and Joy Bombay, MSN, MHA, RN, CCDS, will take a deep-dive into getting started in the pediatric space and identify MS-DRGs with commonly missed secondary diagnoses. They’ll share detailed clinical protocols developed by Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist in Winston-Salem, NC, common sources of pediatric denials, and case studies of successful (and unsuccessful) payer appeals.

You don’t want to miss this update of a popular session delivered at the 2023 national ACDIS conference in Chicago.
