Early in 2021, CMS released a number of updates to the risk-models for all Home Health Improvement outcomes. Among the updates made were the removal of M1242 (Pain), M2200 (Therapy Need), M1030 (IV Therapies, and M2030 (Injectable Meds) from all risk models for improvement outcomes. We are happy to report that these updates will be deployed to all applicable SHP reports in late July/early August 2021.
To help you understand the impact of these updates, please join Zeb Clayton and Chris Attaya for a National Webinar on Wednesday, August 11th 2021 at 11am PT / 2pm ET. This webinar will dig into the specific changes that were made to the risk models and how these updates may impact your scores.
