IAHC realizes many home care agencies face challenges when reviewing the OASIS. It can be strenuous and time-consuming, leaving the door open for errors to go unseen, reimbursement to go unclaimed and patient outcomes to show inaccurately. IAHC cares about the success of member agencies and partners with PPS Plus to help agencies avoid errors and inconsistencies by offering discounted access to the software programs. PPS Plus software instantly alerts home care agencies to these errors and inconsistencies, giving them the opportunity to correct them prior to submission. The result is better reimbursement, accurate outcomes and improved patient care.
