Everyone’s CDI journey is unique…
I love the opportunities that I have been provided by becoming a CDS. If you had asked me 27 years ago what my nursing career would look like, I would have never guessed this. I started in CDI over 15 years ago in my local hospital and never looked back. These past 10 years I have been in CDI leadership and CDI Consulting. One of my favorite parts about being in CDI Consulting is talking with other hospital CDI leaders, learning about their programs, and looking for ways to partner together to help achieve their CDI Program goals.
One of our core values is to “Embrace Change, Fun, and Learning.” We all know change is inevitable, so our team is always working towards figuring out ways to embrace those changes, learn from them, and have a little fun along the way while doing so.

CDI programs continue to expand and change with new tasks added to their plate every day. e4health recognizes this and offers a way to collaborate with you and your organization to perform CDI Program Gap Analysis.
