Product Description

A Look at OASIS C1 Changes with Sharon Litwin

OASIS is the foundation of the patient homecare episode. It is the major factor to determine both outcomes and reimbursement. However, many homecare clinicians do not understand the very basic intent that CMS gives that can often help clinicians score the data set M items more accurately.

Challenging M items will be addressed in this session by Sharon Litwin, including the intent and how to incorporate with assessment. How clinicians answer M items effects the financial reimbursement, HHRGs- Home Health Resource Groups, so it is critical to the outcome and financial reimbursement for the Home Health agency.

Attendees will get tips on how to assess the patients in order to obtain the most accurate scores, along with PowerPoint handouts that include CMS intent, examples, and tips of homecare assessments, and OASIS
