As the shift from volume to value moves into outpatient settings, how can you fully capture all hierarchical Condition Categories (HCCs) diagnoses for observation patients? And why is it important to do this?
In this webinar, presenters from Atrium Health:
Describe specific implementation tactics for capturing HCC diagnoses in observation patients
Explain how Atrium Health is expanding the CDI specialist role to increase HCC capture and documentation accuracy for observation patients
Demonstrate how to use HCCs to capture the health status of enrollees and predict their future medical costs and potential treatment resources
Show the results of Atrium Health’s ongoing initiative for improving observation patient care
Review the reasons why the chair of Atrium Health’s Documentation Excellence Committee and lead cardiologist described this initiative as a “home run” for patients
Our presenters also preview the evolving health care landscape as Baby Boomers age into the Medicare system, and review how CMS is aggressively moving toward value-based payment models.
