Care Coordination, Time Management, Resource Allocation, Episodic and Regulatory Compliance, Teaching Skills and Documentation Best Practices are just some of what are required of Case Managers. It is hard to be good at some of this – much less all of it! With outcomes-based reimbursement becoming more and more of the norm, Case Managers are the key lynch-pin in driving the clinical and financial health of an agency. This education will enable these individuals to not just be good at what they do, but to truly achieve Greatness in how they manage their patients’ care.
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.
Do you understand what your regular visit documentation needs to be audit proof? It’s not just a skilled need. How your clinician’s document will determine if you can defend your length of stay decisions and medical necessity of the patient. The sixth session in this series, led by Kristi Bajer, RN, MSN of Operacare, provides education on how to ensure that the care you are providing is what it supposed to be, when it is supposed to be, and that the care is reflected accurately and correctly in your documentation.
The Therapy experts at Advance Rehab Management Group are back to teach you the best practices regarding correct and compliant Therapy Documentation. This education will take you within the industry and identify potential areas of improvement in your own therapy documentation. Are you a better therapist than your notes indicate? By attending this webinar, you will have the opportunity to take a critical look at things like: the therapy you delivered and the documentation you didn’t, you’re only as good as your documentation says you are, providing better care through excellent documentation.
This webinar is part of the Clinical Defensible Documentation Series, where we are highlighting how each discipline can improve their documentation skills, maintain compliance, and provide better patient care. This session will educate your Social Workers on how to perform quality assessments and document them correctly.
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.
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.
