Value & Innovation Forum: What Are Z Codes and How Do They Impact Health Equity?
Tuesday, September 21, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Register now to learn how Z codes can help improve patient care and increase health equity. Z codes are a recent addition to healthcare diagnostic codes. They enable clinicians to document a patient’s social needs that impact their health.
Z codes have the potential to improve care and help patients address social determinants of health. But the codes are little used, and few people in healthcare, public health, or patient communities are familiar with them.
This briefing will cover the basics of Z codes and how they can bring social determinants of care out of the shadows into mainstream healthcare.
