Risk Adjustment Coding Team
Optimizing your diagnosis coding to reflect accurate risk scoring
Diagnosis coding is increasingly utilized to assess the health status of patients in value-based care. Risk-based health plans utilize claims diagnosis coding, along with patient demographics, to assign patients a “risk score”—a numerical representation of the predicted resources and annual cost needed to manage care, compared to the average patient. Accurate ICD-10 codes that reflect appropriate patient acuity levels are imperative and can lead to better clinical data and improved efficiency.
