Risk Adjustment Documentation and Coding Boot Camp
HC Pro
6 hrs
$1,399
Library OverviewThe Risk Adjustment Documentation and Coding Boot Camp Online goes beyond just knowing how to code for a condition. It explores where to obtain coding information as well as where to look for documentation deficiencies to improve overall risk scores. Similar to how implementing a clinical documentation improvement (CDI) department strengthens documentation for DRG assignment, this Boot Camp uses the same principles to improve documentation for risk adjustment.Risk adjustment uses diagnoses and patient demographics to calculate a payment amount for a beneficiary for a defined period. The methodology focuses on how sick the patient is, rather than how often the patient is seen or evaluated by a provider. Payments are linked directly to the documented conditions in the medical record, not to the number of visits.The Boot Camp will take you all the way from tackling the concept of risk adjustment and how it is calculated, to focusing on specific diagnoses and conditions that may affect overall risk scores. It will ensure you understand all facets of risk adjustment and help you position your organization to make the best decisions.Library ObjectivesAt the conclusion of this library, participants will be able to:Discuss predictive modeling and the concept of risk adjustmentExplain how risk adjustment is applied to reimbursement in healthcareExplain how risk adjustment is applied to CMS quality measuresIdentify the different models used in risk adjustmentDiscuss the process of computing the Risk Adjustment Factor (RAF) score for individualsDescribe the process of Risk Adjustment Data Validation (RADV) auditsIdentify elements within a medical record that can be used to support code assignmentDefine what is considered a reportable diagnosisIdentify the most common conditions found within the Hierarchical Condition Categories (HCC) risk adjustment methodologyApply the Official Guidelines for Coding and Reporting when assigning codes to these common conditionsIdentify query opportunities related to documentation deficiencies that would likely impact HCC assignment and RAF scoreApply the process of record review for HCC risk adjustment to clinical examplesContributor BiosLaurie L.
