HCC Risk Adjustment

Improve chronic condition documentation

Healthcare systems face increasing pressure to take on risk for care costs associated with specific patient populations. Whether through capitated payments, shared-risk arrangements, or provider-owned health plans, we help you produce accurate diagnosis documentation to demonstrate expected cost of care.

Executing on your strategy

  • Assess technical and operational current state, project ROI, and develop a roadmap
  • Implement organization-wide education, change management, and program development strategies
  • Create point-of-care alerts and documentation support for regular chronic condition monitoring
  • Use registries and advanced analytics to manage at-risk populations, track performance, and identify targeted interventions
  • Execute a risk-coding reconciliation strategy to identify and correct problem areas in risk-adjustment diagnosis submissions
  • Integrate external data into your EHR to support complete HCC reporting and decision making

Population health is a field in flux, and the future isn’t always clear.

With smaller targets to hit and dynamic staffing models, you see wins in weeks, not months.

We focus on your long-term success by giving your team the tools to manage your population health initiatives going forward. With dedicated involvement in testing to ensure a stable system and a focus on training, mentorship, and handoff, we make sure you’re equipped to keep patients happy and healthy long after we hand back the reins.

Nordic quickly became part of the team and brought expertise that contributed to our population health success. They were instrumental in strategizing and implementing the Healthy Planet tools to support our complex care initiative. I’d recommend their services to any organization on its population health journey.
