Abstract

Date Presented 04/05/19

This study explored perspectives of OTs at a skilled-nursing facility regarding the use of standardized assessments during patient evaluation. Study results revealed that clinical observations are the chosen method of evaluation to support billing procedures using new CPT codes. Participants indicated that despite the value of objective measurements, they cannot ignore the pressures of time and productivity.
