Description Biographies

Clinical documentation integrity (CDI) is on the move moving to the outpatient setting because many facilities realize it's crucial since they are being judged and ranked on their quality and value. And since documentation determines the coding, and the codes determine the risk-adjustment, the only way to demonstrate severity of illness and likelihood of resource utilization is through accurate, precise, and complete provider documentation. This timely webcast by Dr. Remer will detail the concept of risk adjustment measures using case-based examples, and will focus on the HCC model. From this webcast you will gain a solid understanding of the difference between inpatient and outpatient risk adjusting.
