Destination Documentation: Surviving MCR Denials and Audits
Speakers: Jennifer F. Warfield BSN COS-C HCS-D, PPS Plus Software
Among the top reasons for home health claim denials are: missing or inadequate F2F forms, lack of home bound status and care that is not reasonable or necessary. Agencies are subject to loss of money and cash flow interruptions. They are even held responsible for appropriate documentation on the face to face document including face to face visits and homebound status that many argue should be the responsibility of the physician. If your agency was called on the carpet today for a major audit, would you survive all the probing? This session will focus on required face to face and homebound status documentation. Additionally, speaker will discuss clinical documentation of functional OASIS responses to support therapy visits that are reasonable and necessary.

Objectives:

-Describe areas likely to trigger an audit
-List OASIS items that frequently contradict care that is reasonable and necessary
-Identify ways to safeguard your agency from audits and denials

Target Audience:
Registered Nurses, Licensed Social / Clinical Social Workers, Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Speech-Language Pathologists / Audiologists, Psychologists, Respiratory Care Practitioners and Nursing Home Administrators involved in the delivery of home health and hospice care.

Planning committee: Jan Grimes, BS, MA; Teresa Smith RN, BSN; Cindy Flayton RN, MS; Cheryl Adams RN, BSN, MBA, COS-C, HCS-D; Connie Banks, RN; Micah Roderick, BA, MPA

Get'em Started - Best Practices in Orientation
Recorded on March 11, 2015 at the IHHC Annual Conference

Speaker: Sharon Wendler, RN from Memorial Home Services

In the intense field of home health care, it's imperative to offer a comprehensive orientation program that focuses on employee retention. What can you offer to new employees as an introduction to your organization? Take the time to share specific agency requirements, policies and procedures that directly impact care, and describe specialty programs that your agency promotes. Since you only get one chance to make a good first impression, establish a 'Home Care 101' that reinforces the importance of mentoring, sound relationships with support staff, and an open door policy between supervisors and staff. We'll share successful orientation program ideas and are eager to hear the experiences of session participants.

Objectives:
-Identify five best practices of a comprehensive orientation program
-Name the benefits that improve employee retention
-Discuss knowledge of several successful orientation programs

Innovations and Risk Strategies to Manage Patients
Recorded on March 11, 2015 at the IHHC Annual Conference

Speakers: Marcia Kissane RN, BSN, CHFN from HRS Home Health and Julie Vanourek, BSN, MSN, ACNP-BC from Rush University Medical Center

In the midst of a rapidly changing health care arena, data driven processes prove to be successful when looking to partner by performance. Reaction is no longer the stance agencies will want to take in order to take the lead in home health today. Proactive processes and consistency with data reporting items lead to better patient outcomes, increased quality of care and reduced costs. In this program, we will review successful transition programs utilized to decrease high risk readmissions and analyze the data acute care facilities require when choosing a partner by performance agency.

Objectives:
-Discuss partner by performance and the importance of this focus for home health agencies as health care reform continues to evolve
-Review transition of care programs utilized to decrease readmission and the importance of proactive and reactive approaches to readmission risk
-Discuss importance of data collection and reporting to improve clinical and financial outcomes

OASIS Accuracy: As Important as Systolic BP
Recorded on March 10, 2016.

This presentation will illustrate a local home health agency's progress with understanding the OASIS; from what the questions mean to the outcomes derived (i.e. end-result, utilization, process.)

outcomes? The last half hour will be a panel discussion with the four speakers being available for questions
