    Leveraging HCCs to Manage Risk

    To accurately manage risk, you need to know how sick your patients really are. You need to see your patients’ clinical data in every care setting for the entire year. You need to account for every diagnoses and comorbidity. Hierarchical condition categories (HCCs) offer this complete view. If you have a firm grip on your HCC state, you can integrate them into current workflows and train your providers to identify patients with gaps in diagnoses and risk scores. You can code more precisely with complete data, and sustain improvements in both revenue and quality outcomes. In this webinar, 3M quality guru Cheryl Manchenton explores the power of HCCs from both inpatient and outpatient perspectives.

    Why PSI-90 Matters Now

    CMS is using a “recalibrated” PSI 90 (with ICD-9 data) in several 2018 payment adjustment programs. CMS cannot start using the ICD-10 version of PSI-90 until they gather more data. Some misinterpret this delay as a reason to reduce their focus on safety indicators in PSI-90 composite, including pressure ulcer rates, hip fracture rates, accidental punctures and lacerations, and post-operation sepsis (which will be even more heavily weighted in the next version of PSI 90). But remember, expected rates and weights will be based on the data you’re collecting now. It is more important than ever that your PSI metrics are complete and accurate. You can use software and other tools to accurately capture and flag PSIs during this period. In this webinar 3M quality experts Cheryl Manchenton and Margaret Schmidt provide an update on PSI 90. Hear more about why it is crucial now.

    Don’t just manage payer denials, prevent them

    Payer denials hit the average hospital hard—with real impact from lost reimbursement, rework and productivity. In this webinar, 3M’s Phil Goyeau, an expert in healthcare quality and hospital operations, takes a close look at how to prevent denials across the revenue cycle, from registration to final billing. Drawing on extensive on-site experience with clients, he highlights best practices and common pitfalls, such as incomplete review processes that cause denials. This webinar provides insights on how teams can move from managing denials to preventing them.

    Best practice for managing sepsis denials

    Denial management policies can be a balancing act: They need to aggressively fight denials but at the same time capture the patient’s full story, including all relevant diagnoses. How “balanced” is your organization when it comes to managing denials—especially sepsis denials? In this webinar, 3M expert Krysten Brooks, RN, discussed the key clinical indicators of sepsis and how to best manage denials. She explored best practice for establishing a hospital-wide definition of sepsis, escalation policies, public reporting for overall hospital performance and query opportunities. Your organization’s physicians, CDI specialists, coding professionals and nurses all need to agree upon the clinical criteria to follow for sepsis in your institution.

    Driving quality, accuracy and revenue in the ED

    The revenue cycle looks different from the outpatient side. Take an emergency department (ED), for example. Charges come in from various ancillary departments. Radiology. Labs. Respiratory therapy. Cardiology. It’s a team effort, with quality, CDI and coding experts all wearing multiple hats. Everyone needs to know how the charges work, including drug administration code assignment and overall reimbursement policies for the ED. Bobbie Starkey, RHIT, CCS-P, takes a fresh look at the ED revenue cycle. She offers specific insights into common diagnosis and procedure errors and ways to drive accuracy and best practices in your ED.

    Creating an accurate picture of your clinical risk

    Does your documentation and coding create a true picture of your patient populations and their mortality risks? In this webinar, 3M quality guru Cheryl Manchenton explains how accurately capturing severity of illness (SOI) and risk of mortality (ROM) can have profound effects on both quality outcomes and reimbursement. Drawing on diagnoses from actual cases, Cheryl shows how coding and CDI professionals play a crucial role in improving their organization’s “observed-to-expected” (O/E) mortality rate.
