Revised Pediatric Tool Training
This is REQUIRED training that all Pediatric Home Health agencies must attend prior to using the revised Pediatric Assessment Tool. Because, each Webinar has a unique log-on, if you have not already received a meeting invitation for your selected date, you will need to contact the Department to request a meeting invitation for your selected date at Guinevere.Blodgett@state.co.us.
Pediatric Assessment Tool
The Pediatric Assessment Tool was developed in response to stakeholder feedback that objective criteria were needed to assess pediatric home health service needs. The tool is based on the OASIS home health assessment tool, has been crafted with expert input from a team of developmental pediatricians, and is tailored to capture pediatric-specific service needs. It determines which service needs meet medical necessity.

Community First Choice
As was presented in the July 24th Home Health meeting, Community First Choice is an important initiative being explored by Colorado Medicaid.

Here is the link to more information about Community First Choice.
