Description Biography

Physicians and those healthcare professionals working in Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) realize that to be successful in a risk-adjusted environment, they must ensure that they provide quality healthcare that is affordable and comprehensive in order to achieve the maximum reimbursement to which they are entitled. To do so requires an understanding of the patient's acute and chronic conditions, while developing effective and efficient care plans that comply with a multitude of documentation and coding requirements.

This exclusive RACmonitor webcast will review the following issues:

  • How HCCs drive reimbursement
  • Important documentation requirements
  • What the hot spots are for external auditors
  • Preventive actions to ensure compliant practices

With Rose Dunn, you will explore some examples of issues and non-compliant practices that have surfaced and may arise in risk-adjusted environments. You will also benefit from discussions relative to preventative actions you can take to ensure compliant practices.
