SmartForm for Virtual Visits Now Activated

SmartForm for Virtual Visits Now Activated

In light of the recent Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services approval of telehealth visits to perform Hierarchical Condition Category (HCC) capture work, as of Thursday, April 23, we have made available a SmartForm for video virtual visits.

We have worked closely with our IT team and Optum to ensure that the SmartForm only fires when appropriate, to identify potential care gaps.

The work flow will be identical to what you are accustomed to for completing HCC capture in your in-person visits.

Please note that these visits must be conducted as synchronous visits with a video component; a telephone call alone is not sufficient.
