  1. Hi Mandy, I really enjoyed this series and found it very helpful.

    Do you know if the “Defensible Documentation for the Home Health Therapist” course is still available through occupationaltherapy.com? I can’t seem to find it.
    Kind Regards,
    Skye

      They actually do not have that course on occupationaltherapy.com any more 🙁 boooooo it was really good! Another one that is a 2 part series about documentation is “Series: Medicare Updates”

      Here is the link to check them out: https://bit.ly/2aOCbcP

  3. Great series on documentation. I teach this skill set in an OTA program and I am constantly reminding my students that the language in our documentation is what justifies the billing codes that are selected. The key piece is our vocabulary, and the OT Practice Framework does an amazing job providing the key words to use to justify services and demonstrate our expertise. Thanks for this wonderful podcast!

      Thanks Lisa! Yes, this is definitely an area that OTRs and OTAs struggle with. For some reason we tend to write about what the pt “did” vs what our “skilled” interventions are to justify services. You have a BIG job. Thanks for listening!!

      Hi Lizanne – YES! This documentation podcast series is actually geared toward any OT/COTA/SLP/SLPA/PT/PTA actually. Kornetti and Krafft provide these seminars on documentation/regulation/etc to all disciplines 🙂 Please share and get the word out – we ALL need help in documentation!

  4. This podcast is fantastic. I’m a new grad currently working per diem and am constantly challenged with documentation and productivity. This includes great tips on how to make what I am including really effective and relevant. Also, thanks for the helpful pdf!

      Glad it’s helpful – it already has me thinking about what I can do to improve as well 🙂
