She will address needs for post acute providers to prepare and execute plans prior to January 2019. She will discuss how these changes affect 33 data items, cover the new items that support the IMPACT Act, and explain the critical need for home health agencies to complete the OASIS accurately, or risk financial penalty, miss potential reimbursement, or risk a denial by CMS.
