Hierarchical Condition Categories (HCCs): Their Impact on the Coding Process

Presented on June 20, 2018 by Joy King Ewing, RHIA, CCS, TruCode Consultant

With the increased use of risk-adjusted models to determine reimbursement, it is critical that coders have a solid understanding of Hierarchical Condition Categories (HCCs). This webinar reviews the HCC categories and the role they play in risk-adjusted payment models. We discuss the impact of clinical documentation on coding and the resulting HCC assignment, and review best practices for assigning & sequencing or querying for appropriate diagnosis codes.

Topics covered include:

  • A review of HCCs and their role in risk-adjusted payment methodologies
  • Understanding how documentation specificity impacts coding and the use of HCCs
  • Learning how HCCs impact coding & reimbursement

A Practical Approach to Outpatient Clinical Documentation Improvement

Presented on April 25, 2018 by Jon Elion, MD, FACC, CEO, ChartWise Medical Systems 

Clinical Documentation Improvement (CDI) is well-established in the inpatient arena, and is now poised to extend into outpatient encounters. Understanding what needs to be done in the outpatient setting is a daunting task, as there are dozens of stakeholders who need improvements in documentation. This webinar provides an understanding of what’s in store as CDI is extended to outpatient areas, and how to ultimately measure its success.

Topics covered include:

  • How to leverage inpatient CDI similarities when building an outpatient CDI program
  • The value of the Risk Adjustment Factor in inpatient and outpatient CDI
  • Understanding the metrics and reports that are valuable for monitoring and improving CDI programs
  • The importance of selecting appropriate Key Performance Indicators for measuring documentation quality for both acute (inpatient) and chronic (outpatient) care settings
