Awesome resource for CDI RNs & Coders

Relevant CDI/Coding topics with a higher-level look at the importance of our work and the purpose we can find in it. I do wish they would introduce themselves and state what role they play and experience they have before jumping into the topic to provide better understanding.

Great Podcast

This is a great podcast if you are in the CDI, HIM, or Quality arena of healthcare. Very timely topics with knowledgeable hosts and guests. There’s not another CDI podcast out there like this one!!
