The few, specific OASIS-D1 items that affect payment under the PDGM payment model are a gold mine for securing fair payment. That is, if OASIS-completing clinicians are OASIS-accuracy-savvy. Informed clinicians will capture a patient’s full impairment at Start of Care and capture changes, as well as status at discharge. Result - fair payment each 30-day period and stellar scores on Home Health Compare.
Uninformed clinicians may fail, causing the agency to leave deserved money on the table as well as to appear sub-standard on Home Health Compare. Your clinicians and leaders need this education. Give them the tools they need to make your agency succeed.
