Streamlining the collection and validation of patient diagnoses is crucial, organized by diseases and condition categories. Hierarchical Condition Categories (HCC) are vital in assessing illness complexity, population health, and healthcare payment. Consistent, accurate, and complete documentation is key to success in HCC coding, ensuring proper reporting of diagnosis codes. Improving clinical documentation accuracy positively impacts Risk Adjustment Factor (RAF) scores and coding. This course aims to help your team implement consistent, accurate, and complete documentation processes, optimizing HCC and Risk Adjustment models. Learning objectives include understanding the entities using HCC and Risk Adjustment, reviewing best HCC coding practices, and developing an action plan to leverage HCC coding effectively.
