MaHIMA Fall Conference Series - Session 1 will focus on the Social Determinants of Health

This session will consist of 2 presentations from 11am to 1pm EST.

11am -12pm EST Presentation 1
Title: Social Determinants of Heath, HCCs and Z-Codes


Presenter:  Phil Goyea, Healthcare Solutions Executive, 3M Health Information Systems, Inc.
Summary: 
Social Determinants of Health have become increasingly important in terms of value-based care and have become a high priority for payers and government entities.  Z-codes are used to capture data on the social needs of their patient population which identify non-medical factors that can have a profound impact on the well-being of your patient population.  While HCCs will continue to be the foundation for population health-based reimbursement, new approaches to Health Equity have driven added coding requirements around Z-codes.

This session will:

  1. Review Social Determinants of Health and how factors such as health literacy, inadequate housing and inequalities in accessibility to health care can drive poor patient outcomes.
  2. Revisit HCCs part of the foundation for managing patient's chronic disease burdens and how providers are reimbursed to care for these populations.
  3. Review Z-codes which are the ICD-10 encounter reason codes used to document Social Determinants of Health data.
  4. Discuss changes in technology and artificial intelligence being developed to adapt to changes in coding requirements.

Attendees will have a better understanding of how Health Equity plays a major part around patient outcomes, how HCCs continue to be the foundation for reimbursement around population health and how Z-codes help tell the whole patient story.

12pm -1pm EST Presentation 2
