Who We Are

We have spent the last two decades designing effective, efficient, sustainable programs that empower people to do their jobs better and create real results for hospitals.

We’re here to make your life easier. Because your work is important, but so is your sanity.

We started our consulting business together back in 2005 because we realized that the idea of huge binders brimming with unnecessary and often confusing information was not cutting it for the hospitals we worked with. So together we co-authored the original, best-selling  CDI Pocket Guide®, now in its 15th edition. This comprehensive CDI resource tool for coding professionals, clinical documentation specialists, and physician advisors, is now available on-line, CDI Pocket Guide® Unbound, and accessible from any PC and available as an iOS or Android app.
