Home Health, Hospice & DME Open Door Forums Update

Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services
Special Open Door Forum:
Suggested Electronic Clinical Template for Home Health
Tuesday, May 20, 2014
2:00pm – 3:00pm Eastern Time
Conference Call Only

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Service will host a series of Special Open Door Forum (SODF) calls to allow physicians and other interested parties to give feedback on data elements for the Suggested Electronic Clinical Template for Home Health.

In order to enhance physician understanding of medical documentation requirements to support orders for Home Health services, CMS has developed a list of clinical elements within a Suggested Electronic Clinical Template that would assist physicians when documenting the Home Health (HH) face-to-face encounter for Medicare purposes. While not intended to be a data entry form, the template will describe the clinical elements that CMS believes would be useful in supporting the documentation requirements for coverage of Home Health services. CMS will work in collaboration with the DHHS Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC) and the electronic Determination of Coverage (eDoC) workgroup which are focused on giving practitioners access to payer approved tools for the electronic submission of medical documentation.
