In the final installment of the Clinical Documentation Series, our focus turns to the Aides.  Unlike many of the other disciplines who provide care in the home, Aides many times are present the most, but have the smallest amount of actual documentation to do.  However, there are skills that need to be developed by the Aide to enable them to work closely with their Supervisory nurse, and communicate what is happening with their patients.

SOCIAL WORKER: The Route to Quality Assessments

  •   Webinar
  •   2/20/2018
  •   Christina Nuqui, MSW

Home care agencies have become vital in ensuring that individuals can remain home safely and independently.  Social workers have consistently been the frontline workers in times of crisis and have always provided a social safety net to ensure that everyone, particularly the vulnerable in our society, has access to needed services and resources. Social workers play an important role in supporting their patients and their families. Patient care is not routine, and care coordination needs to meet those changing needs.

Compliance Series, Part 5: Scribing - Real Time QA

  •   Webinar
  •   2/14/2018
  •   Michael McGowan

 

The Penalty Box is our new monthly webinar series on the latest compliance and regulatory issues facing home health. This series is produced in partnership with OperaCare, a software and services company that focuses automating the quality assurance process for home health. 

 

Homecare is the only segment of the Healthcare continuum which isolates its nurses to assess and chart, do complete care planning, and manage a patient’s outcomes.  This has created long gaps between OASIS assessment completion and being able to care for the patient.  Good outcomes are difficult to attain because of this in many cases.
