Product Description

Every year the home health industry is challenged by payment changes that increase concerns about long term viability. Recent activity by the Senate Finance Committee, Medicare and the RACs are all expected to increase the scrutiny on care delivery in home health as many wonder if it is driven by patient needs or perceived financial incentives. Therapy visits have had a direct relationship to home health revenue for more than 10 years and fluctuating patterns that appear to align with payment changes have raised concerns about clinical decision making. Taking care of patients costs money and agency leaders are trying to balance clinical needs and the bottom line. As many not-for-profits will confirm “without money there is no mission”. Many sessions try to tackle financial and clinical issues separately – but not this one.

“Patient focused care” and the “interdisciplinary team model” have been talked about for years but implementation has been difficult for many and elusive for some. This session will take real life issues surrounding patient management, connect them to meaningful care planning and provide solid documentation principles to decrease the risk of payment denials. Lessons learned from the audit findings will be incorporated to directly improve the quality of therapy reassessments right now.

Take-aways from this highly interactive session:

  • Strategies to directly connect OASIS to care planning in practice NOT just theory
  • Discussion templates for interdisciplinary care planning
  • Guidelines for therapy utilization that is driven by patient needs while being fiscally responsible
  • Know how to review documentation content to meet medical necessity criteria – especially the risk laden Therapy Reassessments
