The content for both the Raleigh and Charlotte sessions is the same. First a general session offering an overview of MACRA will impact your practice and future revenue for your health system. Learn the basics of Medicare risk adjustment and how Hierarchical Condition Category (HCC) codes are assigned to patients, and how HCC coding affects your risk scoring and subsequent impact on value based reimbursement models. Understand how to accurately assign HCC codes through improved documentation.
The second part of the workshop will break into two tracks depending on your role in the practice.
Track I, for CEOs, Physicians and accountable care champions, will focus on physician contracting under value-based payment model. This group will develop physician contracting strategies, discuss timelines for implementation and report innovative ideas to larger group.
Track II, for practice managers and care coordinators, will look at post-acute care opportunities and issues, and learn about relative value of PAC setting. They will develop strategies for improving PAC utilization, develop Post-Acute Care strategies for individual communities, discuss timelines for implementation and report innovative ideas to larger group.
This ongoing series of workshops is made possible by the federal Practice Transformation Network initiative to help small practices, clinics and critical care hospitals currently unaffiliated with an accountable care organization (ACO) to prepare for value-based payments. National Rural Accountable Care Consortium (NRACC) is presenting the workshops in cooperation with their partner Caravan Health.
