Speaking: Ellis “Mac” Knight, MD, Senior Vice President/CMO | Coker Group

About the Webinar: 

With the advent of value-based reimbursements, such as MACRA, clinical documentation and coding in the ambulatory space just got a lot more complicated and important. Risk adjustment coding, i.e., the capturing of hierarchical condition categories and other information used to risk adjust quality and cost performance, is going to be an essential way in which providers can ensure they receive credit for the severity of illness and clinical complexity of their patients. In this Coffee with Coker presentation, Dr. Ellis “Mac” Knight, an experienced physician, will further explore this important topic and outline what provider groups (hospitals and physician practices) need to be doing now to shore up their capabilities in this area.

Participants will learn how to:

  • Explain how hierarchical condition categories (HCCs) and other clinical documentation is used to risk adjust performance in the MACRA Quality Payment Program and other value-based reimbursement models.
  • Define the essential components of an ambulatory clinical documentation improvement (CDI) program.
  • List those payment models within which risk adjustment factor (RAF) scores are utilized.
  • Design coding and ambulatory CDI programs that can withstand outside RAC or RACV audits.
