Documentation by hospice agencies is necessary to support the patient’s admission, level of care, interventions, physician visits, IDT care plan, recertification, transfer and/or discharge. How does any agency assure the proper and timely documentation paints the picture of the patient/family in a way that demonstrates the interventions and is meaningful to the payers?
This webinar will provide attendees with a working knowledge of the key risk areas in hospice documentation, compliance issues and strategies on how to respond. Plan now to attend this webinar and leave with insight to increase your confidence in documentation.
