Print Agenda

Description: Over the years OASIS has become the core of everything Home Health!  OASIS-D is no different and in fact many changes come with this version.  With the implementation of OASIS-D there came lots of changes to the structure of the OASIS Data Set as well as the introduction to brand new GG items and J items.  Guidance for completion of some M items was changed and MANY M items have been eliminated.  This workshop will cover changes to the OASIS including detail guidance on completing these items.  Value Based Purchasing (VBP) is alive and happening in nine states and of course impacts reimbursement. The VBP measures are directly derived from OASIS and CAHP surveys and each of these items with detail for completion will be reviewed.  This workshop will also cover the day to day OASIS relationship in terms of reimbursement and address the coming changes with HHGM, including each of the items that impacts the HIPPS code calculation. This workshop is a must for all involved in the completion and review of OASIS-D documentation and for the decision makers that must use OASIS-D data and outcomes to manage the agency!


At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to:

1.     Detail the Significant Changes that will occur with OASIS-D implementation

2.     Itemize the specific OASIS items that impact the Value Based Purchasing Pilot (VBP) and discuss guidance surrounding.

3.     List the OASIS Items that have been eliminated from the data set. 

4.     Calculate a HIPPS code based on the case mix structure surrounding Home Health PPS, using the OASIS-D Items.

5.     Discuss the guidance for the new GG & J items that have added to OASIS-D.

Print Agenda

Description: Accurate diagnosis coding is critical to agency survival in the home care world, and hospice coding is increasingly important as well.  There are over 400 code changes and guidance updates coming in October – are you ready? This one-day program will get current home care and hospice coders ready to handle the diagnosis coding changes effective October 1, 2018.  This is not a basic beginning coding class – the presentation will be geared to coders that have a working knowledge of the ICD-10-CM Coding Conventions and Guidelines, and just need an update on changes.  We will also review guidance in areas that are frequently coded incorrectly and discuss coding scenarios that are sometimes a challenge. 

The program content will include:

·        Explanation of the ICD-10-CM coding changes for 2019 (effective October 1, 2018)

·        Review of new codes added, old codes deleted and code changes

·        Latest updated guidance from Coding Clinic

·        Practice scenarios with examples typical to home care patients, discussion of scenarios with rationale for code selection and potential coding errors – focus will be challenging areas for home care and hospice coders, including wounds, complications, sepsis, diabetes and more
