MaHIMA Webinar-Documenting, Coding and Reporting Hospital-Acquired Infections (HAIs) for CMS’ Various Quality and Performance Programs
August 19 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
This webinar will provide details about the documentation, coding, and differing definitions and reporting requirements of hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) that appear on CMS’ Hospital-Acquired Conditions (HACs) list compared with those that CMS uses in its HAC Reduction Program and Hospital Value-Based Purchasing (HVBP) program. The goal of this webinar is to help CDI, coding and quality professionals understand how HAIs are defined and used in the various programs, and to enable them to create a more cohesive approach to obtaining the needed documentation to support the accurate and complete coding and reporting of HAIs for all programs.
