NRHI Member Roundtable:
Risk Adjustment & Public Reporting
- Brantley Scott, Data Quality Project Manager, Office of Health Care Statistics, Utah Department of Health
- Jonathan Mathieu, Senior Consultant at Freedman HealthCare LLC
Risk adjustment is a critical component of both performance and public reporting. Through NRHI Shared Services, NRHI members have access to the Johns Hopkins ACG Risk Adjuster to support not only their total cost of care reports but also to ensure a high level of confidence in other cost comparison analyses. We recognize the importance of being able to come together with others managing this important and sometimes difficult work to hear how they are using the tool.
To this end, NRHI is hosting a roundtable with both expert presentations from Brantley Scott at the UT Department of Health and Jonathan Mathieu at Freedman Health and use case presentations from participating NRHI members. The Presentations will be followed by a discussion where members can ask one another questions related to successes and barriers. If you are not using a risk adjuster or accessing this shared service, and you are interested in learning more, we also encourage you to join.
