  • How can clinicians and HIM professionals collaborate when it’s time to document and measure population health?

    Why are patient risk scores so critical for HIM professionals?

    How do the 3M™ Clinical Risk Groups (CRGs) compare with the hierarchical condition categories (HCCs), and can the two complement each other?

    All good questions! For the answers, review our webinar from Sept. 12 and 13 to discover how these two risk-adjustment methodologies:

    • Can impact both quality and financial performance
    • Differ from each other
    • Are used today in population health management and value-based purchasing
