Event Description

Chronic illnesses account for most of the healthcare spending in the US. Preventing these illnesses or managing symptoms when prevention is not possible can significantly reduce these costs. However, this is not easy to achieve, as the rising-risk group is not yet sick enough to seek clinical care even though they are past the point where preventative solutions are effective. This ultimately creates a massive gap between prevention and care, and with current health problems continuing to escalate, coders must ensure they extract chronic diagnoses correctly from the patient record so they can be analyzed effectively to help hospitals better prepare financially for chronically ill patients.

Join our esteemed panel of industry experts in this one-hour virtual discussion, as they share valuable insights and best practices implemented by one large healthcare organization to capture chronic diagnosis and improve risk scores.
