- Summarize the role of the home health clinician as provider, educator and patient advocate
- Describe how the OASIS data set is used to help drive care planning and capture related outcomes in home health

- Describe the importance of the clinician’s role in PDGM and capture of the patient diagnostic profile
The Patient-Driven Groupings Model (PDGM) will dramatically
affect the way home health agencies are paid. It also will have a significant
impact on agencies’ operations, from intake through discharge. During this
session we will walk agencies through the significant home health changes under
PDGM and detail how agencies should adapt their intake process as a result.
This includes strategies for getting detailed documentation, questions intake
staff can ask to gather additional details necessary for accurate coding, and
best practices for increasing efficiencies within the intake department.
Upon completion of this course, you’ll have an understanding of the
essential components of the principles guiding hospice and palliative
care. We’ll review the basic Hospice Medicare Benefit and governing
regulations for patients and families serviced in Hospice. We’ll
identify the four levels of hospice care provided under the Hospice
Medicare Benefit, and we’ll review the interdisciplinary team member
services and all coverage required under the Hospice Medicare Benefit.
This course will provide you with the information necessary to
understand each component of the Medicare conditions for payment, and
what it means for you and the hospice you work for.
