Host: 
National Rural Health Resource Center (The Center)

Speaker: Cynthia R. DuPree, CPA, FHFMA, CCS, Partner, Draffin & Tucker, LLP

This presentation explored the hospital charge description master. The topics included, "What is the Charge Description Master (CDM)?", "Why is it important to the revenue cycle?", "What's it got to do with me?"  Non-financial staff will learn how charge capture and the CDM interrelate. The CDM is only as accurate as the person entering the charge information.
