CDI programs focus on accurate coding for co-morbidities across multiple care settings and have adapted to support the ever-changing challenges faced by our providers. Out of necessity, these programs have continued to expand and accurately capturing Hierarchical Condition Categories (HCCs) is a leading focus. This session will review this expansion of population-based care, how HCCs are the cornerstone in managing at-risk populations and how they have become increasingly important to ensure appropriate reimbursement.
We will do a deeper dive into HCCs, review current best practices for capturing HCCs through your CDI efforts, and will share how technology is helping advance these programs.
After this presentation, participants will:
- Be able to define HCCs how they apply to population-based Risk Adjustment as well as how providers can leverage CDI Programs across the continuum of care to capture and accurately code for HCCs.
- Review methodology that is used to calculate a patient’s disease burden and the financial implications of missing HCCs.
- Understand pitfalls around code resequencing for HCCs and the broader implications of publicly reported data.
- Learn strategies on developing an HCC Management plan and some of the available technology to really move their program to the next level.
