Few UDS measures are impacted as quickly by inaccurate hypertension reporting. With guidelines that permit presumable causal relationships, coders have opportunity to make an immediate impact on accuracy of hypertension reporting. We’ll study anatomy and physiology, the impact of hypertension on multiple organ systems, and guideline application to real-life scenarios. AHA Coding Clinics will assist us in appropriate reporting when multiple causal relationships are supported.
