Live- Potentially Preventable Complications (PPCs): Getting the Whole Picture

Webinars - Live
7/11/2017 12:00:00 PM - 1:00:00 PM (CST)

States are seeking to reduce healthcare expenditures, and the Potentially Preventable Complications (PPC) methodology has become an especially attractive solution. The PPC methodology identifies a set of diagnoses that are potentially preventable during an inpatient episode of care. This began as a demonstration project in three states and is now an active program in more than six states. PPC is a trend that is expected to grow with the movement toward utilization. For those organizations whose states do not currently measure or that penalize based on PPC scores, this is a unique opportunity to understand the methodology and improve PPC rates prior to being measured or penalized. As the determination of PPC performance is either retrospective (as in Texas) or concurrent (as in Maryland), understanding the differences is critical to success. This session will describe the PPC methodology, provide information on the most frequent and troublesome PPCs, and provide strategies to reduce PPC rates. This includes concurrent and retrospective audits for diagnosis validity, present on admission (POA status), and exclusion criteria for reporting. Attendees gain a deeper understanding of the impact of PPC, helping them prepare for a future implementation, reduce healthcare expenditures, and improve patient care. Get out ahead of the transformation—secure your spot at this upcoming webinar.
