In the big picture, all of these play a part in creating an agency’s brand in the marketplace. While analytics alone cannot directly boost staff morale, it can be used as a tool to gain insights and guide strategies that can have a positive impact.    Speaker/Course Author - Michael Greenlee Founder and CEO, HealthRev Partners Hannah Vale Chief Strategy Officer, HealthRev Partners  Read More

Originally developed for use in early 2000, the Outcome and Assessment Information Set (OASIS) has changed and grown over the last 23 years. No longer is it just a patient assessment tool. Your agency's outcomes and reimbursement rely heavily on how well this information is documented from the beginning to the end of each episode. Do you and your staff know the ins and outs of OASIS? Do you know how this information is used to determine your outcomes or how the patient revenue will be calculated? During this OASIS workshop will explore all the details of OASIS-E. By using the current OASIS guidance manual, examples, and real-world patient scenarios, you will learn how to formulate a plan for your agency to improve patient assessment, outcomes, and reimbursement.

Thanks to HCAF's advocacy efforts, the Florida Legislature passed legislation in 2020 (HB 607) that allows certified nursing assistants (CNAs) and home health aides to take on expanded duties under the supervision of a registered nurse (RN). Now that the Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) has completed its rulemaking process, we want to know how your agency ensures compliance and implements the new rules. The Florida Administrative Register, specifically sections 59A-8.0097, 59A-8.0216, and 59A-8.219, outlines the requirements for the medication administration program, training, and RN delegation of tasks. Effective May 24, 2023, CNAs and home health aides must complete six (6) hours of training through course-based modules, pass a written test, and demonstrate proficiency to perform the additional tasks.   The primary objective of this webinar series is to equip those that will be training non-licensed personnel with the necessary skills to administer medications safely to homebound individuals. Additionally, we aim to support agencies in ensuring compliance if nurses delegate tasks to CNAs and home health aides. While each agency is responsible for fulfilling the in-person competencies mandated by the new law, home care agency owners/operators, administrators, and clinical managers will be provided access to policy templates, reference materials, and sample test questions with corresponding answers. This series is designed for RNs considering delegating additional tasks and the individuals that will teach RNs and Aides how to meet the critical requirements. We recommend taking the entire course and so we are not making the individual modules available separately.  The following are some examples of learning objectives to be covered: Overview of course requirements, certification, and recertification Basic principles of medication - The five (5) rights of medication administration Medication interactions and adverse reactions Comprehension of medication labels Clarifying medication orders Documentation of all medication administration tasks in written and electronic form Ensuring the safe and lawful delegation of tasks is crucial. This program will guide you in achieving that. Register today and let's embark on this training journey together!    Speaker/Course Author - Heather Curren, RN, BSN, COS-C, HCS-D, HCS-H  Read More
