  1. Lisa B.

    Lisa B. - As a CDI professional, this is hands down the best reference out there! I have been using the CDI Pocket Guide for at least five years and each year the new edition and updates keep me up to date. Thank you!

  2. Carol S.

    Carol S. - I am new to the CDI profession and this guide has helped me tremendously. I don’t know what I would do without it. It has been a great help to me in learning the ins and outs of coding and DRGs, and also what to focus on during my record reviews and querying physicians.

  3. Melissa S.

    Melissa S. - Thank you for another great edition of the CDI Pocket Guide! I so appreciate the excellent webinar on the updates – very helpful to learn what’s new for 2020. And thanks for adding the DRG Tips section back this year!

    Mindy L. -- I can’t do my work without it!

  5. Nat G.

    Nat G. - As a coder, this guide teaches me all the clinical definitions and criteria that I need to help me recognize diagnoses that I should code or not. I feel it is a must guide for any coding professional.

  6. Karen M.

    Karen M. -- As a long time user of the CDI Pocket Guide (I still have my 2009 edition!), it has been my trusted resource for conducting record reviews, meeting with physicians and more recently responding to denials. Keep up the good work Dr. Pinson and Cynthia!
