Presentation

Using Technology to Improve Compliance Across the Risk Adjustment Lifecycle

Wednesday, June 30th
12:10PM – 12:55PM PT, 3:10PM – 3:55PM ET

 

This session will focus on how the recent increase in CMS/OIG audits has led to a greater need for health plans to focus on the integrity of data across the entire risk adjustment lifecycle.

This presentation will review how to:

  • Avoid potential audits from CMS/OIG by utilizing NLP solutions to increase coding accuracy.
  • Maximize your tools to increase provider awareness of coding challenges and dramatically reduce error rates in coding.
  • Use analytics to drive provider education programs—and get your data right from the beginning.
