360° Risk Adjustment: A Strategy for Coding Optimization

  • March 02, 2017
  • 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM ET

Pressures on risk adjustment – including risk-based model enrollment growth, increasingly complex data submission requirements, scrutiny from regulators, and downward reimbursement pressures – are signaling the waning utility of traditional approaches.

In the era of value-based care, an integrated, comprehensive framework is required to address the ongoing financial, patient care, and competitive challenges facing risk-bearing organizations.

Traditional risk adjustment approaches have been perceived as simply “checking the boxes” – performing a set of tasks that comprise a required actuarial exercise – instead of a crucial effort that has far-reaching implications across the organization.

In this webinar, attendees will discover that when risk adjustment is treated as a priority and brought into the organization’s long-term strategy, it can be properly leveraged as an asset to drive growth and advance the organization’s mission of keeping patients healthy. Risk-bearing entities who embrace a 360° approach to risk adjustment will outpace their competitors in the transition to value-based care models.

Webinar participants will:

  • Discover a fundamentally new way to perform risk adjustment that considers optimization from all angles, including how to:
    • modernize technology
    • enhance provider collaboration
    • integrate across multiple departments
    • transform risk adjustment into a strategic lever
    • obtain performance control and transparency
    • evaluate risk adjustment vendors and partners
  • Learn about the 8 components of the 360° Risk Adjustment framework and leave with recommendations for driving success in each area
  • Uncover how to assess the status quo and develop a performance baseline for measuring success
  • Gather evidence to build your business case for investing in risk adjustment improvements
  • Create a blueprint for improvement by adopting our transformation planning framework

Who should attend: Managers, Directors, and Executives responsible for Risk Adjustment, Quality, Value-based Care Strategy, Finance, and Government Programs.
