Succeeding with Diabetes Comprehensive Quality Care Measures
Presented by: Laurie King, RN
Provider Engagement Clinical Specialist, HealthChoice

This brief lunchtime webinar will focus on meeting and reporting the NCQA/HEDIS quality measures for diabetes care that are the same across all payer contract types, whether commercial or CMS. Special attention will be given to the Attention to Nephropathy guidelines, which are not adequately met in our network. Improvement in this group of measures can significantly improve quality scores with value-based commercial contracts and MIPS for Medicare, while delivering better diabetes-focused preventive care for a significant portion of the Memphis area population.

Date:  Wednesday, Sept 29

           

Time:         12:15 PM – 1:00PM     We will begin promptly at 12:15

ONLINE ONLY. Link will be emailed to registrants one day prior.   1 hour CEU

CODING the BIG FOUR:
Diabetes, HTN, CKD, and Obesity

Lunchtime Webinar

Presented by: Karen Scott, MEd, RHIA, CCS-P, CPC, FAHIMA

The prevalence of these four diseases in our part of the country, and their interactions merit special attention for documentation and coding to demonstrate a realistic picture of the health of so many of our patients. These four diseases have far-reaching effects not only in the care of our patients, but in the quality performance and cost valuations in commercial and government payer contracts.

This condensed session for clinicians will discuss:

  • Proper use of combination codes for reporting these interactive issues, which drive cost expectations by the payers
  • Proper reporting of CPTII codes that can show treatment outcomes for quality
  • Proper reporting of ICD + CPTII for obesity diagnoses and the effects of chronic disease on BMI level when choosing an obesity vs morbid obesity diagnosis and reporting a diagnosis without a BMI
  • Specific questions regarding the number of combo codes you can report, reporting combo codes when all of these are present, how to report CPTII codes

 

Date:             OCtober 6, 2021                                                                       

           

Time:             12:15- 1:00       We will being promptly at 12:15                

                       

Location:      Online only. Link will be emailed to registrants one day prior to event.
