Home Health Documentation
The most up-to-date home health documentation manual on the market
Documentation is critically important in the home care setting. Not only does it prove medical necessity, but it also helps to:
- Code the Outcome and Assessment Information Set (OASIS)
- Ensure proper reimbursement
- Provide legal protection
With so much at stake, it’s more important than ever to have effective documentation.
Home Health Documentation: Proven Strategies for Clinicians provides nurses and therapists with an easy-to-use reference on documentation that is regulation-compliant and helps ensure proper reimbursement. Real-life case studies illustrate examples of proper and improper documentation so you and your staff know exactly where your documentation could use improvement.
Pay for performance means more money for you.
The Pay-for-performance initiatives focus on tying quality care, documentation and reimbursement together. This important initiative requires a stern look at your documentation to make sure you prove that quality care is provided and that high risk patients are properly identified. Home Health Documentation provides strategies to implement pay for performance initiatives set by CMS so you get the reimbursement you deserve.
Home Health Documentation: Proven Strategies for Clinicians provides:
- Real-life case studies
- Comprehensive regulatory information, both on CMS and The Joint Commission
- Advice on completing the OASIS
