As part of our expansion into consultative services for RA, Vee Technologies has designed Risk Adjustment packages for clients to choose from to meet their individual needs. Issues involving risk reporting can be corrected with long-term solutions which can develop into a long-term relationship between our clients and Vee Technologies.
RA is a multi-pronged process. There is no one exclusive service alone that can help our clients accurately reflect their patient acuity. The approach must be a combination of different services, including retrospective, concurrent and prospective solutions, attacking the problem from different angles. Once gaps are identified, delivery is important. Physicians are trained to focus on the “why” of an issue rather than just the execution. Educators then deliver results to providers and discuss corrective measures to better improve documentation and coding. It takes a team, or a village, to get it right.
A simple analogy for RA is to compare the process to building Legos. Identify the bricks you need. Take the bricks and put them together in such a way, so the product looks complete. Each block is integral to the final product. When the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid (CMS) comes along at the end of the year and knocks it all down, you must rebuild it from scratch, and maybe add some accessories. A risk profile, in the same way, cannot be stagnant. Chronic conditions tend to either remain stable, or in many cases, worsen, with new, additional conditions developing. We can help identify new patient conditions through promoting correct documentation and valid clinical indicators.
Vee Technologies has proven that we can develop success in the area of risk assessment and more, through a long-term relationship, rather than just with a consultative branch of business. Our team envisions all our Risk Adjustment packages to work by identifying gaps in coding and providing recommendations.
Our coding team and clinical reviewers are skillful and professional. We have all the resources needed available, working in tandem, to help our clients navigate through the maze of RA, to achieve extraordinary outcomes.
