Presentation 1: 8:00am EST
Title:   Ambulatory and Risk Adjustment focusing on Outpatient capture of HCC and SDOH codes, diagnosis queried and OP CDI programs
Presenters:  Sarah Kirchofer, MSN, NP-c, NE-BC, Regional Nurse Director, Primary Care Center of Excellence, Brigham Women’s Hospital and Tricia S. McDonough, MS, RN-BC, CCDS, CRC, Clinical Review Specialist, Population Health Management, Mass General Brigham

Presenters: Keisha Downes BSN, RN, CCDS, CCS, Director of Clinical Documentation Integrity, Tufts Medicine and James Kennedy, MD, President - CDIMD – Physician Champions

Summary:  While CMS has paused the use of the AHRQ Patient Safety Indicator (PSI) Composite Score (PSI 90) for its Hospital Acquired Conditions algorithm for FY2023, they and others (e.g., Leapfrog) will continue to report individual hospital performance on their respective website that impacts facility reputations and public perceptions of hospital and physician quality.  This lecture will outline a deep dive into what AHRQ PSIs are, how there are calculated, what includes and excludes each measure, and, very importantly, how they risk-adjust patient characteristics using the Elixhauser model and other factors as to ensure equity.  Aspects of the lecture will include:

1.       Foundations of the AHRQ PSIs and what impact they have on hospital reputations and reimbursements

2.  Fundamentals of “front end” metrics, such as the encounter priority and point of origin, affecting PSI inclusions, exclusions, and risk adjustment

3.  Concepts in coding conventions, guidelines, and advice affecting individual high impact PSIs with an emphasis on recent changes for FY2022

4. A primer on PSI risk-adjustment with an emphasis on Elixhauser model concepts 

5.  Suggestions on proactive CDI implementation strategies that include preoperative risk assessments, concurrent and pre-bill review opportunities, medical informatics, and data analytics

Familiarization with the AHRQ PSI website, available at https://qualityindicators.ahrq.gov/measures/psi_resources, is strongly recommended as to attain the most benefit from the presentation.
