Compliance Series, Part 5: Scribing - Real Time QA

  •   Webinar
  •   2/14/2018
  •   Michael McGowan

The Penalty Box is our monthly webinar series on the latest compliance and regulatory issues facing home health. The fifth session in this series, led by Michael McGowan of Operacare, provides an education on Scribing and how this process can revolutionize the care provision in Homecare while significantly increasing quality and compliance. 

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.
