2023 CDI Leadership Mastermind Hot Topic Guide: Part 2


The ACDIS CDI Leadership Council exists to connect leaders nationwide (and even internationally!) for conversations about the hot topics and trends in the CDI industry. A smaller subset of the Council, the Mastermind group, provides participants with an opportunity for focused brainstorming and problem solving. The Mastermind members meet six times during their one-year term, covering a wide range of topics during hourlong meetings. Readers can find takeaways on metrics and monitoring staff performance, denials management, and problem list management in Part 1 of this series.


This second multitopic report, produced in partnership with 3M Health Information Systems, shares takeaways from the latter half of the 2022/2023 CDI Leadership Council Mastermind term, including a three-hour in-person meeting at the 2023 CDI Leadership Exchange. These conversations covered physician education for mortality reviews, prioritization and workflow, quality reviews, and change management.


“We can't change the numerator [the observed deaths]; the numerator is the numerator when we're looking at the mortality index, so the only thing that we can really fix is that expected. We really need to be looking at that expected because that's where the bulk of our impact's going to be and then it's also going to impact that length of stay index.”—Lena Wilson, RHIA, CCDS, CCS, MHI, CDI manager at Indiana University Health in Indianapolis, Indiana


We hope that you’ll read the resource fully, but also that you can use it for focused guidance on topics central to your CDI program’s needs.
