Summer Hot Topics: HEART, TPE, PEPPER
HEART: A recap of the June 2019 update from CMS on the HEART assessment tool is discussed. TPE: Weatherbee recommends using your QAPI program to change bad documentation habits now so when TPE Rounds 1, 2 and 3 come, your hospice passes with flying colors. PEPPER: Less than half of hospices have retrieved their PEPPER which was most recently released in April 2019. Use the PEPPER to identify vulnerable areas for payment-related scrutiny.
