The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) establishes quality initiatives to improve patient care and provide reimbursements for hospitals that follow the initiatives. In order for facilities to benefit, clinical documentation specialists (CDSs) need to understand the requirements and how to participate. This webinar increases the specialists’ understanding of CMS quality initiatives, including value-based purchasing and its components, quality measures, the hospital-acquired condition reduction program, inpatient quality reporting, and bundled payments for care improvement. Excessive hospital admissions, the Affordable Care Act, and the evolution of domains of care will also be discussed, along with the process of care measures. The speaker explains how reporting of CAUTI and CLABSI differs from ICD-10 official guidelines, and even touches on SSI and increasing efficiency by decoding Medicare spending per beneficiary. By going through various examples, the audience will learn to recognize the CMS quality initiatives impacting revenue. This session covers them all, making it a thorough review of important concepts for any CDS. Attendees can expect to leave with a greater understanding of these initiatives, in order to deliver better patient experiences and identify reimbursement opportunities at their facilities. Join us for a complete explanation of the requirements that can make a positive difference in your organization.
