2022 Home Health Coding Summit

Monday, August 15—Thursday, August 18, 2022 | Chicago, IL

Get the latest guidance for accurate coding & compliance

The 2022 Home Health Coding Summit is your one-stop shop to get intermediate and advanced code training! Join us and get a first look at the FY2023 codes, guideline and OASIS changes! We will set you up with the tools and resources you need to succeed so you can sit for your coding credential, earn CEUs, and advance your career. It's no wonder coders across the nation consider the Coding Summit a priority investment year after year.

In addition to intense code training, here’s what we have in store for you in 2022:

  • Special Preconference on Compliance – Learn how to create a culture of compliance with best practices for properly managing an episode from intake to discharge.
  • 30+ hours of intermediate and advanced code training, including interactive scenario sessions in which you’ll work in groups with expert instructors.
  • Specialty code training for advanced coders – Delve into the most complicated home health cases and work through actual patient documentation to find the right codes.
  • OASIS-E prep for coders and QA professionals – Dive into the changes coming to the OASIS and learn how OASIS, coding and the plan of care need to work hand-in-hand – a can’t miss training for those who want to become dual-certified.
  • Access to the nation’s leading home health & hospice coding experts – Learn from a lineup of the industry’s most trusted and forward-thinking trainers.
  • Welcome & networking reception – Connect with others who share you same passion.
  • Fun coding games and exciting door prizes!

IMPORTANT: The 2022 Home Health Coding Summit is intended to provide home health coding education at an intermediate and advanced level. It is not intended for beginner coders. You are at an Intermediate level if you have been coding in home health for at least 1 year and either plan to sit for your HCS-D credential immediately following the conference or became credentialed in the past year. This track is also appropriate for those coders who completed the Ultimate Training Coding Basics course. You are at an Advanced level if you are an HCS-D certified coder with 3+ years in home health coding and consider yourself an expert, and/or are an experienced QA/QI specialist who is dual-certified (HCS-D, HCS-O).

2022 Home Health Coding Summit

Agenda

Pre-Conference: Monday, August 15, 2022

Preconference A: Compliance Best Practices from Intake to Discharge

7:00 a.m. – 8:00 a.m.
Registration & Continental Breakfast

8:00 a.m. – 9:15 a.m.
Build a Culture of Compliance: Training, Tools, and Resources for Home Health Coding & Clinical Managers
Sharon Harder, President – C3 Advisors, LLC
How can your agency not only achieve survey readiness, but also maintain those high clinical standards when a surveyor isn’t standing watch? Explore vulnerable clinical department processes from referral to discharge. You’ll walk away from this session with strategies for focusing clinician and coder training and education and armed with tried-and-true tools and resources that reinforce compliant practices.

9:25 a.m. – 10:40 a.m.
Walk Away With Lessons Learned From RCD, Ensure Claims Stand Up to Government Scrutiny
Robert W. Markette Jr., JD, CHC, HCS-C, Attorney – Hall, Render, Killian, Heath & Lyman
Avoid ADRs and streamline processes to get claims paid. Learn strategies from agencies that have participated in the Review Choice Demonstration (RCD) on how to conduct effective self-assessments to spotlight coverage criteria and ensure your claim has everything needed to stand up against any kind of government review. Review the top five most common reasons for non-affirmation of pre-claim reviews and what can be learned from these errors.

Tool: RCD self-assessment checklist for agency audit risk

10:40 a.m. – 10:55 a.m.
Networking & Refreshment Break

10:55 a.m. – 12:10 p.m.
CDI Best Practices: Go Beyond Just Accurate Query Practice
Brandi Whitemyer, RN, CDIP, COS-C, HCS-D, HCS-O, Consultant, Home Health and Hospice Coding Expert
True or false: The first step to clinical documentation integrity (CDI) is to ensure the physician is providing the documentation you need. False! The first step is to create a process for collecting data that will inform your decisions. For example, do you know where the majority of your referrals are coming from? Do you know which physicians are consistently providing improper face-to-face documentation? Do you know what percentage of your referred patients are rehospitalized because it took your agency three weeks to get the proper information? CDI is more than teaching how to compliantly query. In this session, learn how to implement a process that will get you the documentation needed to submit compliant claims, including what key data points you should be collecting and analyzing.

12:10 p.m. – 1:10 p.m
Networking Lunch—Provided

1:10 p.m. – 2:25 p.m.
Steps to Audit-Proof Documentation, Master F2F, Submit Compliant Claims
Sharon Harder, President – C3 Advisors, LLC
Learn how to gather accurate information and detailed documentation so that you can avoid the top 10 documentation mistakes when submitting home health claims. Compliant documentation demonstrates eligibility, identifies the skilled care your patients require, and ensures ethical reimbursement. Poor documentation can undermine all the work your agency does to provide care for patients. Learn steps you can take to avoid common documentation pitfalls. More than 10 years after face-to-face (F2F) was implemented, failure to meet the requirements continues to be a top reason for claim denials. Conquer the common issues causing F2F-related denials and receive a list of specific tips and actions to address them.

Tool: Physician face-to-face encounter compliance checklist

2:25 p.m. – 2:45 p.m.
Networking & Refreshment Break

2:45 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Diagnosis codes and responses to certain functional OASIS items drive your agency’s episode payments under PDGM. Walk through the key documentation touch points that drive PDGM payments. Make sure you have the checks in place related to code choice, including how to handle unacceptable codes, primary diagnosis designations, and comorbidity listings. Walk through examples of where coders and clinicians trip up when completing these touch points. Discover methods to improve clinician accountability for timely, accurate, and complete patient information.

 

Preconference B: OASIS-E Introduction & Best Practices

Note: This class is not an item-by-item training session. It aims to present the core OASIS concepts as well as introduce the changes coming with OASIS-E.

This class is intended to lay the groundwork as you build your OASIS foundation. The core concepts that will be discussed include OASIS intent, eligible patients and who completes the OASIS, differences in OASIS time points (SOC, ROC, FU, TRN, DC, DAH), data reporting regulations/OASIS CoP, how OASIS and the plan of care work together, and the impact of data accuracy on PDGM. You’ll also get a high-level look at how to use the Guidance Manual, including key conventions and terms you need to understand to accurately review the OASIS.

You’ll also get a rundown of the key OASIS-E item changes, including the sections that are changing entirely. And you’ll learn the intent of the sections, including which items are QRP items, which ones are process measures, and which ones aim to bridge the gap between other post-acute providers and home health. Learn how OASIS-E impacts payment and outcomes, as well as Five-Star ratings and Value-Based Purchasing (VBP).
