Webinar: The Outsized Impact of Risk Adjustment on ACO/DCE Performance and How It Fits into Your Financial Optimization Strategy
Thursday, March 24, 2022, 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM EDT
Category: Events

ACOs and DCEs don't fully realize the many ways that risk adjustment impacts their financial performance. As a result, in 2020, half of ACOs had a risk adjustment related reduction in their benchmark forgoing an average of $1.4M in shared savings, with the top quarter of ACOs dropping $3.7M.

This webinar provides a deep dive into the uses, implications and strategies of risk adjustment optimization efforts. We start with the basics, such as the mechanics of HCC gap closure efforts, risk score calculations, how risk scores impact your benchmark and ultimately your shared savings. We include observations on how COVID-related care avoidance impacts risk scoring. Then we cover methods to build a business case for risk adjustment optimization, stratify the ROI of HCC gap closure by patient cohorts, and identify when efforts hit diminishing returns. Finally, we step back to demonstrate how your risk adjustment strategy needs to be integrated with other key decisions, such as beneficiary attribution management, provider participant selection and track selection.

Speakers: Andrew Webster, Validate; Jeffrey Cumplido, Coastal Medical ACO
