Last Chance to Register! Malnutrition Documentation Throughout the Continuum of Care: Improving Payment and Quality Outcomes | Presented by Wendy Phillips, MS, RD, CD, CNSC, CLE, NWCC, FAND | Thursday, May 9, 2019, 2–3 PM EDT | Earn 1 CPEU
Malnutrition affects population and individual health at every level of the care continuum. Medicare and other healthcare payers provide payment incentives for care that is delivered in a cost-effective manner and provides high-quality outcomes. Accurate coding of complications and comorbidities, like malnutrition, can more accurately predict expected cost of care and improve quality measurement scores for individual providers and healthcare facilities.

This webinar explains the payment structures that can be improved in hospitals, inpatient rehabilitation and long-term care facilities, and ambulatory care clinics when malnutrition is accurately identified and documented. Best practices for medical record documentation will be shared to enhance the recognition of malnutrition when it is “present on admission”. Attendees will be prepared for the new payment models that will be introduced by Medicare in the new federal fiscal year.

Learning Objectives
After this presentation, participants will be able to:
  1. Compare and contrast the ways malnutrition coding can influence payment and quality measurements in hospitals, rehabilitation and long-term care facilities, and outpatient programs.
  2. Organize medical record documentation to manage, evaluate, assess, and treat — or "MEAT" — regulatory requirements and decrease coding and payment denials.
  3. Demonstrate recognition of malnutrition as being “present on admission”.
