Any suggestions on study material/course to prepare for CDIP?
Have you any response for taking CDIP, I am interested in obtaining CDIP, I attempted ACDIS but due to our organization structure, I do not have exp with data interpretation review. I felt the ACDIS exam was heavy on mgmt. focus. My results of exam confirmed my lack of experience was in in analysis portion.
i have taken both certifications, I found CCDS to be more of a focus on CDI function, clinical knowledge and coding and query compliance. I found the CDIP to be more related to medical record management issues and HIM focus. As a disclaimer it was several years ago that I sat for the CDIP and their exam may have changed.
