Along with some high-level deep dives into the coding of body systems, we’ll also be offering interactive sessions, reviewing actual documentation, query situations, and much more!”

The final event is the Home Health Payment Summit, August 17–18. The introduction of the pandemic while PDGM was so new created many challenges for home health agencies.

Annette Lee, RN, MS COS-C, HCS-D, president and founder of Provider Insights, Inc., and speaker at both the Home Health Coding Summit and the Payment Summit, adds, “I am looking forward to the return of our in-person conferences this year for so many reasons – both personal and professional! I miss the smiles and the small talk – from sharing personal events in our attendees’ lives, to the celebrations of professional changes we watch our ‘conference friends’ evolve into! I also miss the sharing of experiences, from hearing ‘Yes-I had that denial too!’ to the laughs in the classroom. But, most of all, I miss the energy of the attendees! I can't wait to see everyone in August!”
