“The HCC alert was followed 64% and if you are familiar with alerts in an EMR, a follow rate of 64% is nearly a miracle. We shoot for 40-50% as a gold standard so to have it at 64% tells you that providers really were accepting of this workflow and the alert when appropriate.”Patrick McGill, MD – Executive Vice President and Chief Transformation Officer, Community Health Network
Actionable HCC Alerts help providers identify new codes not previously documented.
Benefits of HCC Alerts
Available in EHR WorkflowActionable HCC alerts are made available in the EHR at the point of care and are designed to assist a provider in identifying whether a new or different HCC code should be considered by a provider to optimize diagnosis coding.
Suggests New CodesOur HCC alerts are not solely reliant on prior coding history, nor do they focus primarily on the recapture of codes. This helps enable providers to identify new codes that have not been previously documented by providers, which may result in a year-over-year increase in RAF scores.
Expanded HCC ContentWe offer more than 40 HCC alerts covering a variety of conditions including diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, benzodiazepine and opioid dependence, chronic kidney disease and more that can be made available as part of your clinical decision support (CDS) library.
Actionable AlertsThe alerts are designed to be actionable within the EHR workflow and built to limit the provider’s administrative burden by avoiding the need to remember to update the code later or navigate to a different part of the EHR to complete the task.
Provider EfficienciesThe alerts are designed to increase provider efficiencies across the care continuum, with the goal to help improve patient care, risk score outcomes, billing compliance and the potential to optimize Medicare Advantage reimbursement.
“Remarkable results begin with great partnerships. Community Health Network and Stanson Health are a perfect example of bringing together technology for the improvement of performance while improving the provider experience.”Patrick McGill, MD – Executive Vice President and Chief Transformation Officer, Community Health Network
