Hierarchical Condition Categories (HCC) Program

Assessing Your Patient Population’s Disease Burden

As medical groups move into performance and value-based contracts, their ability to properly assess and document the disease burden of their patient population is essential for successful care management and financial performance. Diagnosis codes assigned to patients are the basis of the actual risk or severity of illness of the population.

MediSync’s HCC Program educates and enables physicians in the HCC Risk Adjustment Model used for Medicare Advantage as well as models used by most commercial payers.

Today’s Reality

HCC education options are readily available in today’s marketplace but few are able to achieve the level of understanding that your physicians want and need.

MediSync Benefit

MediSync physicians provide the education for your physicians and our program is designed as a clinical approach to coding and reimbursement. Our sessions are delivered on-site so your physicians acquire a deeper, more comprehensive, and more actionable understanding.

Today’s Reality

Many organizations rely on retrospective reviews by external consultants rather than proactive strategies that effectively document patient disease and drive appropriate reimbursement. These strategies may yield lower quality and higher costs.

MediSync Advantage

Using Quality theory, MediSync teaches the best ways to approaching documentation of disease burden when it is critical to do the work correctly the first time. Our approach is more accurate and less expensive than other methods.

Today’s Reality

Many training organizations have limited offerings that include only a general level of education to your physicians and an inadequate approach to change management to sustain new processes. The result is that more questions are raised than resolved.

MediSync Value

MediSync training utilizes chart reviews and clinical notes to teach good documentation practices of the appropriate diagnostic code specificity. Customized reports enable physicians to easily assess the greater level of detail needed in the patient record and identify codes not assessed within the current calendar year to facilitate monthly progress reporting.

reason to believe:

Our unique approach provides effective physician training, engagement, and support. It promotes the physician or other licensed provider to properly diagnose in real time using proper ICD-10 coding on RAF (Risk Adjustment Factor) scores as well as documentation required to support the codes. MediSync’s HCC Program is a logical next step to our E&M CodeRight solution.
