Great Resource!!

ACDIS Radio is a great place for CDI, Coding, HIM & even Providers to come for industry updates and what’s happening in the CDI industry. I’m grateful that it’s now available via podcast! I was accustomed to missing the live shows due to a hectic schedule and would listen to archived shows. Now I can listen to the show via podcast during my commute to & from work. Great job ACDIS!
