Effective & structured education targeted for quality managers, HIS abstractors, field clinicians & supervisors. Experience a comprehensive one-day workshop and learn to confidently teach, audit and report HIS items accurately. Gain familiarity with the measures involved in the Hospice Quality Reporting Program, and learn how the measures are calculated based on the new HIS item data. Through guided instruction and participation in problem-solving scenarios, achieve mastery of the HIS items, guidance for item completion and resources available from CMS to support your ongoing accuracy.

 Learn from a source you can trust. Rather than provide opinions, assumptions, or unfounded interpretations, the OASIS Answers’ team will model reliance on CMS guidance documents and demonstrate and share strategies for how to find defendable answers to your HIS questions. Instructor Doreen “Dodie” Johnson, RN, MSN, ANP-BC, is a Certified Nurse Practitioner with a Master’s Degree in Nursing Administration. She has worked in clinical and administrative roles in hospice and home health, and has managed business development and physician alignment for oncology and surgical services in a multi-hospital system. Currently she provides content expertise and management support for the CMS Hospice Quality (HIS) Mailbox.

Registration opens at 7:30 a.m. Continental breakfast and lunch will be provided. Upon completion of the workshop, attendees will receive 5.5 nursing CEs.
