Product Description

Stop Losing Opportunities to Gain Credit for Implementing the Best Practices in the Two OASIS Items - M2250, M2400


Currently home health agencies are reimbursed based on diagnoses and other selected items within the OASIS assessments completed at the beginning of each home health episode.  However, we know that there is a plan to transition to payment based on quality outcomes.   Many home health agencies are currently losing opportunities to gain credit for implementing the best practices included in the two OASIS items M2250, Synopsis of Care and M2400, Synopsis of Interventions.  Understanding how to use these items to capture all of your planning and interventions can position your home health agency in the best position to benefit from the future changes in reimbursement.

Register now for this 60-minute audio session where, our exert speaker Judy Adams, RN, BSN, HCS-D, COS-C, HCS-O, will provide detailed information on official guidance for completing M2250 and M2400 and how you can use these items to your advantage, even if the underlying risk assessments for pain severity, pressure ulcer risk, depression and fall risk were unable to be done or did not meet the threshold for further intervention.

You'll also be provided with specific examples of situations and appropriate interventions as well as clarifying guidance on the standardized risk assessments that lead to M2250 and M2400 responses.  

What Will You learn?

  • Official Guidance on responding to the risk assessments for severity of pain, and risk for pressure ulcers, depression and falls.
  • How to gain credit for best practice interventions even if a patient does not meet the criteria for risk at the individual risk assessment items.
  • Specific guidelines for answering yes, no and NA on M2250, including one key exception.
