Before sending Dx codes from Prospective reviews to Physicians for CDI, a RIAR is generated using the demographic and Dx data to compare the revenue impact from Missed and New Dx codes with Billed Dx codes. The goal is to find and prioritise high-value diagnosis codes linked to HCC. Those high value Dx codes with medical evidence are then included as suggestions in EMR for physician review and CDI. Alternatively, the RIAR can be directly shown to physician for review and CDI. All these require absolutely no PHI data. Click here,to generate RIAR.
Prospective reviews cost lot because it involves risk adjustment coding for the entire population, and also it takes lot of physician’s time for CDI. This means each patient's data must be quickly and carefully reviewed before the encounter to decide if it's worth doing a prospective review for potential revenue. Not every prospective review will find high value diagnosis codes linked to HCC. A big reason for this hesitation is that there aren't good tools to help pick the right charts for prospective review, and find the high value diagnosis codes after prospective review. The lack of awareness and helpful tools make it harder to feel excited about doing prospective reviews. Click here, to generate RIAR.
Discover the RAF Score Calculator to simplify the way you approach post-prospective chart reviews and clinical document improvement (CDI) recommendation.
The RAF Score Calculator is a simple and quick solution that combines demographic and diagnosis risk scores to provide a comprehensive evaluation of a patient's health. The demographic risk score encompasses critical factors such as age, community, medical institution, and age-gender interactions. Meanwhile, the diagnosis risk score is founded upon the Hierarchical Condition Category (HCC) codes extracted from the patient's ICD-10 codes for diagnosis, reflecting chronic conditions.
By meticulously analyzing these factors, the RAF Score Calculator offers an accurate understanding of a patient's health landscape. The importance of the Risk Adjustment Factor Score cannot be overstated as they directly impact budgeting and resource allocation for shared-risk providers and payers.
A low risk score, while potentially indicating a healthier population, can also highlight the significance of accurate and comprehensive documentation. On the flip side, a high risk score signals patients with heightened health risks, necessitating a more intricate level of care and allocation of resources. An HCC RAF score of 1.00 serves as a benchmark for average resource utilization, while an HCC risk score surpassing 1.00 signifies increased resource requirements.

- RAF Score Calculator greatly assists medical coders in calculating risk scores with revenue impact, making the analysis process remarkably easy and quick.
- This innovative RAF Score Calculator shifts the paradigm from a generalized approach to healthcare to one that is fine-tuned, patient-centric, and results-driven.
How To Use RAF Score Calculator
There are three primary categories of risk models in this Calculator: CMS-HCC, RxHCC, and ESRD, each featuring distinct models for both continuing and new enrollees. Upon selecting a risk model, you will find a list of corresponding risk factors available for selection. Following this, you can choose the gender and input an age up to 120.
Subsequently, you can enter up to 20 diagnosis codes either by manual entry or by copying and pasting them into the provided text box, separating them with commas.
For record removal, the delete button is available at the end of each row. Upon inputting all necessary data, click the submit button to generate the Revenue Impact Report.
Our RAF Score Calculator performs distinct calculations for RISK scores and Medicare Advantage Payment across demographics, diagnoses, and disease interactions.
