Home Health: A Specialty of Its Own

Deborra Rodgers, PT, GCS, GTC, CEEAA

Course Description

Home Health rehabilitation is an innovative, cost effective and affordable component of delivering quality health care to our aging population in their homes. As a home health provider, therapists have the opportunity to make sustainable differences in the outcomes and lives of our patients. We are provided the opportunity to spend one on one time with our patients, in their environment and with their families and support systems. This unique opportunity takes special skills and training for this ever changing environment. As a new home health therapist, a seasoned provider, or someone considering home health as a career, this course is designed to provide you with the most up-to-date tools to guide you in evidenced based assessment, interventions and treatment progression. It will provide in-depth training for tests and measures appropriate for the home health setting for evaluating cognition, depression, gait, balance, balance confidence, strength, ADL, MRADLís and aerobic capacity. This course will give you updated information on regulatory and reimbursement issues, homebound documentation, face to face requirements and training for improving your understanding of Medicareís definitions and accuracy with Oasis documentation. Course handout includes over 350 pages with tests & tools to improve the home health clinicianís skills, documentation and functional outcome measurements. The course will include case studies, labs, and a Functional Test Score Summary with specific tests and measures, age and gender norms that you will be able to take home and immediately put into practice.
