NRHI Member Roundtable:
Risk Adjustment & Public Reporting

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.

Jonathan Mathieu at Freedman Health and Brantley Scott at the Utah Department of Health were keynote speakers at the Roundtable. They presented on the importance of risk adjustment with public reporting and shared the various ways to use the Johns Hopkins System for ACG risk adjustment. 

NRHI members presented cases studies of their use of the ACG Risk Adjuster. The presentations were followed by a discussion.
