Users will improve understanding of the data sets and their purpose, implementation, implications, role in payment, and accuracy for both home health and hospice.
The book is divided into two sections: Home Health and Hospice. Each chapter includes scenarios, additional definitions, and tips. It also includes tools and important reference information with each section and there are additional appendixes at the back of the book that provide useful, important information.
