This issue of Homecare Insider

Homecare Insider, July 29, 2013

In April, the Office of Inspector General (OIG) released a report titled “Home Health Agencies Received Timely Surveys and Corrected Deficiencies as Required.” The report describes state agencies’ (SA) performance of home health agency (HHA) recertification surveys, as well as the types of deficiencies frequently received by HHAs, the rate at which those deficiencies were corrected, and the common complaints lodged against HHAs.

This week’s issue of Homecare Insider will discuss the report above and reveal what it found in regard to condition-level survey deficiencies. The Q&A will explore exactly what a condition-level deficiency is and how it can affect your agencies survey and compliance.

Also, check out our product spotlight, which features information on our August webcast that focuses on OASIS-C and will cover the proposed changes to the OASIS-C1 and what your agency can do to prepare.
