This course will provide the post-acute (home health) clinician with basic information regarding the ICD-10 Code Set, its purpose, and the importance of clinical documentation in the Patient-Driven Groupings Model (PDGM) taking effect January 1, 2020.
Currently home health nurses, physical and occupational therapists, and speech-language pathologists commonly focus their documentation on those clinical findings that will receive skilled intervention to stabilize (maintain) or restore (improve) client functioning, leaving the underlying disease, disorder, or condition relegated solely to medical history status. The PDGM will require clinicians to link foci of care to causative etiology(s) to ensure proper payment through primary grouping assignment and capture of available comorbidity adjustments.
