BENEFITS FOR DOCTORS AND STAFF
Although there are other organizations that teach clinical documentation in the United States, the AIHCD® program is unique. We take a multi-disciplinary approach. Every member of the health care team needs to speak the same language and it begins with doctors. We believe that sometimes it takes a doctor to teach a doctor and that is why AIHCD® uses physicians to conduct and/or oversee all of our training programs.
THE AIHCD® CERTIFICATION INSTITUTES
AIHCD® adopts and encompasses a broader, more comprehensive educational program that is not limited to coding. We currently offer 3 Certification Institutes:
- Physician Advisor Clinical Documentation Improvement & Integrity (PAC-CDI®)
