Course Curriculum
Addressing Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) positively affects both the patient and the healthcare system by improving patient outcomes and reducing unnecessary expenditures such as hospital readmission, length of stay, and use of post-acute care. Addressing SDOH is also a primary approach to achieving health equity. The ICD-10-CM codes included in categories Z55-Z65 and Z75 (“Z codes”) identify non-medical factors that may influence a patient’s health status, such as the patient’s socioeconomic situation, including education and literacy, employment, housing, lack of adequate food or water, or occupational exposure to risk factors like dust, radiation, or toxic agents.

Speaker Bio:
Hartzell-Minzey actively develops systems and innovative programs for healthcare leaders and trainers. Her approach to ICD-10-CM and ICD-10- PCS reflects her clinical knowledge and her knowledge of reimbursement methodologies. She implemented one of the first DRG systems in the country while educating 280 members of the medical staff, one-on-one. The same issues are relevant today in ICD-10. Hartzell-Minzey’s sessions not only provide the building blocks to transition to ICD-10 but also help to decrease Recovery Audit Contractor exposure.
