Yes, Doctor, Your Patients Are Sicker

Time: Tuesday 10:20am - 11:10am Credits: 1 TB

Michael S. Wolford, Principal, Dixon Hughes Goodman LLP

How often do hospital executives hear “my patients are sicker” from clinicians? To some, this phrase is as ubiquitous as walking uphill to school both ways. The truth is, the relative sickness of a population is neither the thing of tall tales nor subjectively measured; it has been and continues to be objectively measured using clinical documentation of patient acuity and coded risk factors. Risk adjustment implications for financial executives shouldn’t be understated. More accurate documentation and coding leads to many trickle-down benefits including more payment from insurers, fewer Medicare penalties, more beneficial targets and benchmarks in alternative payment models (APMs), and more accurate acute LOS targets. Please join us to learn more about common challenges that providers face in the various arenas of risk adjustment, some tactics to improve risk adjustment, and the enterprise value of more accurately depicting patient acuity.
