About Home Care Answers - Oasis & Coding ServicesHome Care Answers, 15 May 2015 [cached]
Following the introduction of OASIS in 2000, Wayne Ferrin, founder and CEO of Home Care Answers (HCA), developed a review process specifically designed to improve accuracy and compliance of coding and OASIS data. This process is the foundation of Home Care Answers' value proposition and has helped home health agencies nationwide capture hundreds of millions of dollars in additional Medicare revenue that would have otherwise gone unclaimed due to errors in OASIS reporting.
Wayne's development began while working with a home health agency that was suffering the negative financial impact caused by coding inaccuracies and other typical paperwork errors. He was asked to develop a strategy to reduce coding and OASIS errors and claim denials.
Wayne identified key organizational, behavioral, and knowledge-based factors influencing the effectiveness of the agency's current coding practices. He developed a process and strategy to overcome these challenges and the results were astonishing. In the first year his new strategy eliminated all claim denials (a $300,000 savings) and increased the agency's Medicare revenue by $600,000 - a net increase of 11% to the agency's bottom line.

Wayne Ferrin and his team at HOME CARE ANSWERS are thorough, timely and, most importantly, EFFECTIVE. The money you spend per case analysis is MORE than REALIZED by the QUALITY of the data, the turn-around time (24 hours) and the "drill-down" that can equate to increased revenue. I never worry about recent changes to coding or whether my increasing census can be handled coding-wise Wayne Ferrin and his team at HOME CARE ANSWERS are Registered Nurses with the skills in coding and OASIS review that I can count on.
Wayne, I wanted to write and express my appreciation to you and your staff for the outstanding work that you give to our company.
