Hansen Hunter & Co/Synergy/Axiom/HealthBridge provides educational classes focused on MDS coding accuracy and care-planning, PDPM, Medicare coverage, Infection Prevention/Control, ICD-10-CM diagnosis coding, Quality Measures, state payment systems, Five Star Quality Rating, and regulatory changes. Webinars are provided monthly related to the hot topics identified by regulatory changes or issues commonly identified during audits or requested by clients. Additional webinars are provided when breaking regulatory news requires more immediate education. Additionally, changes released by CMS, CDC, NHSN, or other regulatory bodies are emailed to clients within 24 hours of important updates. Educational classes and webinars are typically approved for CEs for licensed nurses and NAB credit hours for licensed nursing home administrators.
Our goal is to assist our clients to accurately code the MDS assessments, to improve their knowledge of clinical assessment and care-planning, completion of the MDS, and the regulations regarding the RAI/MDS processes. MDS accuracy affects Medicare payment, Quality Measures, SNF QRP measures, state case-mix payment, survey, and care-planning.
ICD-10-CM diagnosis coding accuracy is critical for optimal PDPM reimbursement, billing, and medical record accuracy. ICD-10-CM coding classes are presented by a Certified Professional Coder (CPC). Webinars are presented when ICD-10-CM Coding Manual guideline and code updates are announced.
Customized education is available for clients to meet their needs.
