BRENTWOOD, Tenn. (PRWEB) October 01, 2020
DecisionHealth is excited to announce three unique virtual learning opportunities to provide home health professionals and coders with the latest coding, compliance, and payment training to ensure accurate reimbursement and prevent denials.
Home health agencies have been in the epicenter of the COVID-19 pandemic, experiencing new safety guidelines, infection control measures, increased scrutiny around patient care, and the launch of the Patient Driven Groupings Model (PDGM). With the latest ICD-10 codes set to be released on October 1 and new COVID-19 codes on the way, making sure your agency is compliant and has the proper documentation processes in place is more important than ever.
“The home health industry has experienced unprecedented change this year. We’ve seen the debut of a new case mix model while weathering a public health emergency, and now it’s time to ramp up for the annual ICD-10 coding updates. Keeping current with the latest education and best practices is essential for success in 2021 and beyond,” says Jan Milliman, HCS-D, Director for Association of Home Care Coding and Compliance (AHCC).
Our first virtual event is in just a few weeks, running October 13–15, focusing on the impact PDGM has had on home health agencies, how to properly use the new COVID-19 codes in response to the public health emergency, and gaining an understanding of the 2021 coding updates and guidelines. Perfect for coders of all levels, the expert speakers break down various practice scenarios to help debunk myths, avoid questionable encounter codes, and improve documentation.

The next virtual event is October 27-29, focusing on building a culture of compliance at your agency. This starts with establishing documentation best practices, policies, and procedures to prevent survey deficiencies and promote quality. Attendees will also get to hear from a panel of industry experts as they share real-life lessons learned to help agencies prepare for a visit from a surveyor or for conducting a compliance audit.

The final virtual event is scheduled for November 2–3 and focuses on the revenue cycle processes that drive your agency’s billing and reimbursement. With a choppy first year of PDGM and COVID-19, the jobs of revenue cycle professionals, administrators, and executives are more difficult but more essential than ever. This 2-day event covers achieving accurate reimbursement under PDGM, strategies to streamline operations, and how to analyze your financial dashboards.
