KHA SDoH Webinar: Putting the Z in E Z: Using Z Codes for SDoH

It’s no secret that Social Drivers of Health (SDoH) have taken a key position in healthcare screenings and care planning for patients across America. Here in Kentucky, the increasingly stringent expectations for healthcare organizations to support the needs of patients identified as being at risk for less-than-optimal outcomes due to SDoH factors have illuminated new challenges for documentation, coding, and billing of conditions that are classified under the SDoH domain. ICD-10 “Z” Codes for SDoH allow physicians, hospitals, coders, health systems and payers to better track our patients’ needs and identify solutions to improve the health of Kentucky’s communities. Understanding these “Z” codes is crucial. Therefore, the KHA Quality Team is proud to introduce a true content expert, Karen Scott MEd, RHIA, CCS-P, CPC, FAHIMA, who will join us in this upcoming webinar to teach us about the best practices surrounding the use of these codes and supporting documentation within the Electronic Medical Record (EMR) regardless of the system you are currently using. We will also hear from a few of our own Kentucky hospitals who are leading the charge in the effective utilization of Z-codes for their SDoH documentation.
