The left column—HAC Deficit Reduction Act—puts your CC or MCC at risk if the diagnosis is not POA = YES or W.
The center column—HAC Reduction Program—uses PSIs and HAIs to put your hospital at risk of a 1% CMS penalty if your hospital is in the lowest 25%.
The right column—Value Based Purchasing—uses mortality metrics O/E combined with HAIs to put your hospital at risk for up to a 2% penalty (or bonus!).
Penalties and bonuses are based on your documentation! Get credit for the high-quality care you provide!
