We have had a very busy and successful year thus far, and are very happy to share these updates!
We are very fortunate to have scored a 99.6% on our quality assessment for the period ending December 31st 2017. The purpose of the OASIS item set is to provide standardized documentation of the clinical condition of patients receiving home health care at the start or resumption of their care (SOC/ROC), at 60-day increments if their care is extended, and at the end of their care. OASIS SOC/ROC assessments are matched with OASIS EOC assessments to form a quality episode for that patient. Home health quality measures are calculated based on these quality episodes. When an HHA submits OASIS data forming quality episodes for all of its patients, CMS can be confident that the resulting quality measure reflects the care that the HHA’s patients receive.
Additionally, we received a 4 star rating for the same period of time. We couldn’t have achieved this feat without the tireless dedication of our clinical and administrative staff, our diligent physicians and the their staff, and our amazing and cooperative patients! Thank you all!
