Maximizing Financial Returns with Diagnosis Coding - Webinar

The complexity of implementing shared savings and incentive payment plans and the need for the right data, at the right time, and in an actionable format is crucial.  HCC Disease Risk Scoring is used by Medicare Advantage insurance payers to stratify patients by risk category. The extension of risk scoring to other populations, including all exchange plans, impacts practice revenue management. Join PDS as we discuss how to use HCC diagnosis scoring to analyze and score the profitability of risk adjusted contracts.  In addition, ensure that you can maximize the capture of revenue what HCC diagnosis scoring and how it impacts your organization’s bottom line.

Topics Include:

  • Evaluating Risk Agreements using HCC Diagnosis Coding
  • Understanding how data is being used to convert risk scores into appropriately higher payments for providers
  • How to identify patients gaps across months or year-to-year that will lower reimbursement
  • Clearly understand the bottle necks that impact the financial risks associated with patient populations
  • How a physician group can manage the financial impact of Risk Adjusted payments without significant investment in IT or Technology
