Health information management (HIM) professionals have the skills to manage hierarchical condition categories (HCCs) and serve as the "go to" experts about how to optimize HCC related processes that will maximize the organization's entitled reimbursement. Recognizing how HCCs may be used for different patient populations as well as other patient care and research initiatives, could elevate the use of HIM's data analysis skills.

Description Biography Continuing Education

As HCCs start to permeate the vocabulary of the C-Suite, it's critical for HIM professionals to understand and be fluent in the fundamentals of HCCs— their impact on the financial condition of the organization, and the unique characteristics of the various HCC models. Physician and provider documentation is as important in achieving entitled reimbursement under an HCC model as it is in a DRG environment. Translating that value to physicians and providers will be imperative. Managing the data from HCCs could also lead to patient care possibilities where HIM professionals can take the lead and facilitate positive changes.

Nationally-recognized HIM expert Rose Dunn will lead this essential webcast, one that is designed to help HIM professionals to lead the documentation improvement activities that will benefit their organizations.
