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.
