Over the last 30 years CMS [Center for Medicaid Medicare] has warned the health care community that Medicare as it was constructed could not survive. Because of this, there has been increased focus on service delivery options and an increasing emphasis on quality care of the chronic diseases that account for 80% of the expenses for health care insurers.
One missing link seems to be adequate aide education or lack thereof. To address this issue, Ginny Kenyon of Kenyon HomeCare Consulting presented this webinar on WHY healthcare organizations need to have Chronic Disease education at the heart of their strategic initiatives, and how they can access and implement this education to their staff and clinicians.
In an episode that defines the name of the podcast, Michael McGowan of Operacare is our guest this week. We learn about how Michael went from field nurse to OASIS expert, and how his new company, Operacare, is starting to take the industry by storm.
Michael shares his insights on how Regulators look at clinicial documentation versus how Providers view it, and then really discusses one of the root causes of the maelstrom of change in Home Health Care.
A fascinating and informational conversation to say the least.
The purpose of this webinar is to provide insight into the importance of properly answering portions of the OASIS document that relate to key Medicare initiatives to justify homebound status and medical necessity, as well as providing agencies with training tools to assist in their orientation and training programs. The course will focus on current Medicare changes, the effect of proper scoring on case integrity, insight into training difficult associates, and the impact proper scoring has on the agency. The speaker will also introduce instruments and training tools that allow managers to collect and analyze key metrics as well as tools for use in training start of care clinicians. Course objectives include:
