LHMHIMA Webinar: Social Determinants of Heath, HCCs and Z-Codes

Join LHMHIMA for our upcoming webinar Social Determinants of Heath, HCCs and Z-Codes.

Virtual Event


Social Determinants of Health have become increasingly important in terms of value-based care and have become a high priority for payers and government entities. Z-codes are used to capture data on the social needs of their patient population which identify non-medical factors that can have a profound impact on the well-being of your patient population. While HCCs will continue to be the foundation for population health-based reimbursement, new approaches to Health Equity have driven added coding requirements around Z-codes.

This session will:

  • Review Social Determinants of Health and how factors such as health literacy, inadequate housing, and inequalities in accessibility to health care can drive poor patient outcomes.
  • Revisit HCCs as the foundation for managing patients’ chronic disease burdens and how providers are reimbursed to care for these populations.
  • Cover Z-codes which are the ICD-10 encounter reason codes used to document Social Determinants of Health data.
  • Discuss changes in technology and artificial intelligence being developed to adapt to changes in coding requirements.

Attendees will have a better understanding of how Health Equity plays a major part in patient outcomes, how HCCs continue to be the foundation for reimbursement around population health, and how Z-codes help tell the whole patient story.
