SVP of Product Development of premier full-service risk-adjustment and quality vendor to deliver breakout session on effective strategies from 2020 risk adjustment.
Los Angeles, Calif., February 23, 2021 – Episource, one of the largest services and technology companies for risk adjustment and quality, is returning to RISE National 2021, a live-streaming virtual event that will take place March 26-30. As a Platinum Sponsor, Episource will showcase its groundbreaking innovations in risk adjustment with a presentation led by SVP Product Development, Sujata Bajaj: Setting the Curve While Flattening the Curve: Effective Strategies from 2020 Risk Adjustment.
Now in its 15th year—and second year as a virtual conference—RISE National brings together leading subject matter experts in risk adjustment and quality to tackle the most pressing challenges in the healthcare industry today. For two days, more than 1,400 stakeholders across the Medicare Advantage and ACA markets will gather virtually in order to learn about the latest technologies, best practices, and regulatory trends in the industry.
Episource SVP of Product Development, Sujata Bajaj, will kick-off the event with a valuable session, taking a deep-dive into strategies learned from 2020 risk adjustment. In this presentation, Bajaj will take a look at health plans that were resilient to the challenges of reduced diagnosis capture due to lower patient utilization.
This presentation will review:
- The unique and common traits of the patient and provider populations that contributed to trends.
- Risk-adjustment strategies utilized throughout 2020 and prior years which can be tied to impacts in claims count.
- Compliant program development during the public health emergency (PHE) that will be employed moving forward.
“We could not be more thrilled to once again sponsor RISE National and share our learnings gleaned from 2020 risk adjustment,” said Bajaj. “The utilization trends we saw in 2020 have led to challenges for many health plans—and some have fared better than others. In our presentation, we take a look at what set apart those who were more successful, and how these best practices can be leveraged in the year ahead. Payers who attend our workshop will walk away with actionable strategies to navigate risk adjustment through the end of the PHE and beyond.”
