Social Determinants of Health (SDOH)

November 13, 2019
12:00 PM – 1:00 PM CT

Quality healthcare is more than visiting a provider and receiving treatment for an illness. Many people can’t even get to a doctor appointment, or if they do, they may be unable to follow their treatment plans. How can providers improve health for individuals that are facing barriers to accessing the healthcare system such as poverty, lack of transportation, or lack of adequate housing? Collecting Social Determinants of Health data is a first step to identifying people who need help and working to establish programs to assist them.

At the conclusion of this webinar, attendees will:

  • Identify Social Determinants of Health (SDOH)
  • Describe the importance of capturing SDOH data
  • Understand how accurate documentation and coding contribute to accurate data capture and reporting
  • Gain strategies to engage providers and coders in the importance of SDOH and how it benefits their organizations and communities

This presentation will address the Medicare payment changes in skilled nursing facilities effective 10/1/19. The current system focuses on the resources required to manage the care of the resident. The new system will utilize ICD-10-CM coding from the Principal Diagnosis to determine part of the payment case mix index as well as base the case mix on the resident’s clinical and social characteristics. The reason for the change will also be addressed. The participants will have an opportunity to walk through the case mix calculation to become more familiar with the complexities of the new system.
