Disease Burden Capture Tips

Chronic conditions present challenges, not only from a diagnosis and treatment perspective, but also from a documentation standpoint. Accurate disease burden capture of your patients’ complete health status can increase the quality of care that they receive. To help you and your team fully and precisely document patients’ chronic conditions, Highmark has released a series of brief, informative videos (below).

Featuring Dr. Frank Colangelo, an internist and primary care physician, the videos below provide a list of “dos and don’ts” for achieving accurate disease burden capture.
