Hospice Item Set (HIS) Guide, workshops and webinar
May 29, 2014
Beginning July 1, 2014, all hospices are required to implement the HIS, a standardized mechanism for abstracting data related to 7 quality measures from the medical records of hospice patients.
Weatherbee Resourses has just released The Hospice Item Set: A Step-by-Step Implementation Guide which breaks the process down into five functions and explains each one in detail: Collecting the Data; Abstracting the Data; Reviewing HIS Records; Converting HIS Records; and Submitting HIS Records.
This downloadable guide includes several tools for training and implementation.
