Peggy Chou shares the journey Atrius Health took in improving the risk adjustment on its value-based reimbursement contracts. Starting with a deep analysis of its existing EHR data, Atrius began a process that included clinicians, finance and IT staff members. Ultimately, the team was able to improve Atrius' ability to document at-risk members of the population. This led to procedures for reaching out to patients with chronic conditions and an improvement in the risk adjustment for the health status of its population.
