How to implement a patient-driven HCC process: Key insights from industry leaders

Wednesday, March 24th, 2021 | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM CT

Medicare Advantage programs and the capture of Hierarchal Condition Categories (HCCs) is a complex process. The accurate representation of a patient’s chronic condition is key with the transition to value based cared. Operationalizing the HCC process requires engagement with the physician, clinical documentation integrity teams and other stakeholders, working together to identify and capture clinical insights related to the patient condition.

During this webinar, leaders from 3M will discuss how health care organizations can create and drive a patient driven HCC process to ensure accurate representation of a patient’s chronic condition.


Key learning points:

    • The impact of risk-based patient population; moving from traditional fee for service healthcare to managed care.
    • The importance of HCCs; the clinical patient.
    • The financial impact. Setting expectations for return on investment (ROI)
    • The need for a closed loop process; integrating the patient encounter into a physician and documentation process.
