Join in on McBee’s sessions at the Home Health Coding Summit.

Understand and Master the Codes That Drive Payment in PDGM
Speaker: Sherri Parson 
When: August 16, 9:05 – 10:20 am

Review how unacceptable codes, primary diagnosis designations, and comorbidity listings have been impacting payments under PDGM. In this session, you will walk you through examples of where coders continue to get tripped up when completing key pieces of documentation, and gain a better understanding of how to treat special circumstances such as complications, symptoms codes, proper sequencing, and more.

Connect the Dots: OASIS, Coding, and Payment
Speaker: Karen Tibbs
When: August 16, 2:30 – 3:45 pm

The diagnosis codes your agency chooses as well as responses to certain functional OASIS items drive your episode payments under PDGM. Understand what documentation is required to support proper reimbursement and avoid regulatory scrutiny. This session will discuss the crucial role of the plan of care to connect the patient’s assessment with documentation and delivery of care. Discover methods to increase clinician accountability for timely, accurate, and complete patient information.

Fun & Games: Train and Engage Coders in a Virtual World
Speaker: Sherri Parson
When: August 17, 2:35 – 3:50 pm

In this session, discover new ways to make coders’ and clinicians’ training more fun and interactive — even in a remote work environment. How do you connect coders and clinicians, make them feel appreciated, and train them remote? You’ll explore how agencies are using drive-through celebrations, coding texts, OASIS tips of the month, and more to ensure that all clinicians and coders have the training they need.

Fun & Games Part 2: Put Your Concepts Into Play
Speaker: Sherri Parson
When: August 17, 3:55 – 5:10 pm

Take a break from your notes and join in on the fun! This session will follow a format similar to the game show Jeopardy as it introduces a fun and interactive way to train coders and clinicians on key coding concepts such as the “code first” convention, coding late effects and sequela conditions, manifestation pairings and more!

OASIS Update for Coders
Speaker: Karen Tibbs
When: August 18, 2:35 – 3:50 pm

This session will walk you through some of the recent changes in official OASIS guidance, including the Q&As and more. Plus, find out what OASIS changes are coming down the pike and what you’ll need to know to continue to achieve consistency between the OASIS and coding.
