Trina St. Ours - Education Consultant DME Outreach and Education with Noridian Healthcare Solutions along with Michael Hanna MPA, CDME - Provider Relations Senior Analyst with CGS Administrators will present their insights. This presentation will be focused on the long-term care facilities' responsibilities in creating/maintaining the necessary documentation for reimbursement of surgical dressings and supplies. Emphasis and specific detail will be provided on preliminary orders, detailed written orders and the importance of thoroughly completed monthly/weekly evaluations.
Documentation is a critical component of resident care, said Misty Vaughn, PT, CWS, DAPWCA, Senior VP of Clinical Programs, AMT. To help ensure compliance regarding wound care provided, a facility should make sure their documentation meets or exceeds the requirements set forth by Medicare. This webinar can help participants learn critical information they can apply directly within their facilities.
