This webinar will assist in analyzing and interpreting your agency reports (CASPER Reports, 5-star ratings) and provide clinicians OASIS item-specific guidance such as item intent and response instructions which helps in improving patient outcome measures.
Why Should You Attend:
From CASPER reports and 5-Star Ratings to OASIS items, your home health agency has a whole truckload of outcome measures to stay on top of. And a low score on even one report or measure can bomb your agency's reputation and even threaten your reimbursement. All measures link back to patient outcomes, and improving these outcomes is a huge focus area for many home health agencies. So how do you do it?
Attend the webinar to learn how to look at your CASPER reports and be able to understand the outcomes being measured and how to analyze those outcomes so that you know what areas are a top priority to focus on within your agency.
Areas Covered in the Webinar:
- How to review CASPER reports so you can understand outcome measures and improve them
- How to relate daily practices to your 5-Star Rating
- How Home Health Compare really works, where all that data comes from, and how to avoid an embarrassing review of your agency
- How to select the outcome measures your home health agency should focus on this year
- What to do with the selected outcomes to make sure your agency measures up
