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.

With margins shrinking and competition growing, it’s critical to utilize industry-wide and agency specific data, not generalized assumptions to identify agency strengths & weaknesses as well as areas for growth & improvement in both sales activity and financial outcomes. Using current and historical trended data agencies can develop a plan to decrease operating costs, identify key areas of margin improvement and focus on specific tasks to impact change.
