Why you should Attend
Agencies put themselves at risk when they admit patients who don’t really qualify for home health services or miss the mark when trying to capture a patient’s true functional status as it evolves over the course of care. Inappropriate patient admission can result in complete denial of payment after your agency has already provided services and paid the caregivers. An inadequate or missed opportunity for functional status capture deprives the agency of fair payment for legitimate care and shames the agency with substandard scores on Home Health Compare.
Don't risk revenue and reputation loss. Give your staff the tools they need for your agency’s success.
