Risk adjustment is central to pay for performance, whereby high-quality cost effective care can be appropriately measured within each unique population. However, risk adjustment penetrates without uniformity. Certain metrics such as PSI 90 utilize AHRQ’s comorbidity risk model and others, such as 30-day risk standardized mortality measures, adhere to condition categories.

Hierarchical condition category (HCC) risk adjustment began in Medicare Part C but has extended into the Hospital Value-Based Purchasing Program, Value-Based Payment Modifier for physicians, ACOs, and others. Healthcare professionals are struggling to understand the fundamental methodology of HCC risk adjustment and its integration into CDI programs.
 
During this program, expert speakers James P. Fee, MD, CCS, CCDS, AHIMA-approved ICD-10-CM/PCS trainer, and Anny Pang Yuen, RHIA, CCS, CCDS, CDIP, AHIMA-approved ICD-10-CM/PCS trainer, will explain the importance and impact of HCC coding in Medicare Advantage and other quality programs, define HCC methodology in terms of its implications across the continuum, and offer strategies for HCC auditing and an integration into CDI programs.
 
The webcast will take place Thursday, November 19, from 1 to 2:30 p.m. Eastern.
