On March 8, 2017 at 1:00 PM (Eastern-NYC), you are invited to attend a free PDS webinar, "Patient Risk Acuity Analytics for Financial Management,” presented by Becky Cook, Executive Consultant, and Russell Hendrickson, CEO of PDS.

Join PDS as we discuss how to use HCC diagnosis scoring to analyze and improve the profitability of risk-adjusted contracts. 

  • Understand how waiting for payers to provide reports to your organization is significantly hurting your bottom line.
  • Learn how capturing, analyzing and organizing information as it occurs can improve patient management and quality of care while enhancing financial performance.
  • Discover how understanding patient risk scoring through accurate information in real time is critical to a successful payer management strategy.


Topics Include:

  • How diagnosis codes are used to maximize risk scores into appropriately higher payments for providers
  • How to identify patient gaps across months or year-to-year that would reduce reimbursement

  • Measuring and projecting the financial impact of risk-adjusted scores without significant investment in IT or other technology
  • Compare payer-provided data to monthly reported billing data to ensure payers are appropriately reporting and rewarding your practice
