As reimbursement methods shift toward value-based payments, it is critically important to understand the relationship between clinical documentation, performance improvement/quality scores and medical record coding.
NJHA-HBS Health Information Services has developed a new service called DRG Assure that directly links clinical documentation with coding to drive more accurate severity of illness and risk of mortality scores. Join HBS-HIS Dec. 4 from 1 to 2 p.m. for a free webinar that will provide background on value-based payments, demonstrate how documentation pitfalls can adversely impact severity of illness and risk of mortality scores and show how the DRG Assure program can help.
All Patients Refined Diagnosis Related Groups (APR-DRGs) are now effective in New Jersey for Medicaid fee-for-service patients. A fiscal impact analysis of the APR-DRG severity of illness and risk of mortality-based system shows that 50 percent of New Jersey providers will experience a loss of revenue, an average of $277,000.
