Lessons Learned from Case Studies
Home health agencies provide a valuable service, there is no disputing this. Most agencies work diligently to ensure their patients meet the Medicare beneficiary requirements, yet we continue to see CMS come out with programs to monitor and penalize agencies, such as Targeted Probe and Educate, Value Based Payments, Review Choice Demonstration, RAC and ZPIC auditors. What agencies miss is that CMS relies 100% on the documentation performed in the chart. HealthCare Synergy provides complimentary audits and ongoing services to help agencies understand what their documentation is telling reviewers. Come learn from some case studies to better understand what CMS is looking for in surveys, ADR and the vast array of programs.
