Home Health Administrator’s Webinar Series for Reform Success: Part 1 of 4

Home Health Administrator’s Webinar Series for Reform Success: Part 1 of 4

Tuesday, December 6, 2022 (1:00 PM - 2:30 PM) (EST)

Description

In the past few years, Healthcare changes have hit the Home Health industry head on, challenging many long-standing beliefs about delivering care in the home. Most of the reforms aren’t focused directly on Home Health; they are primarily related to Medicare’s rewiring of the Care Continuum in terms of Volume to Value. But the net effect of the IMPACT Act reforms is the revamping of our care production and delivery processes, altering the basic premise of Home Health under the Medicare Prospective Payment System (PPS). By redefining the Home Health identity in terms of positively rewarding rapid outcomes in clinical and fiscal terms, IMPACT Act reforms outline the care path of the future. 

Home Health administrators may find the reforms a confusing set of care directives that fail to relate to the home care industry they know. In addition, the reforms don’t necessarily build on the PPS model that directed care for the last 20 years. By rewiring the Home Health model entirely on the clinical acuity (or illness) of an individual patient, IMPACT Act reforms create a model where rapid care outcomes produce improved clinical and fiscal results. The recent Home Health focus on clinical acuity is the basis of additional pending or planned reforms, including the Home Health Value-Based Purchasing (VBP) Model, the Review Choice Demonstration (RCD), and the PPS for post-acute care (PAC) providers.

This progressive, four-part webinar series for Home Health Administrators and Owners addresses Home Health challenges related to IMPACT Act reforms. Learn the effects of specific IMPACT Act reforms, and operational processes that address each reform to produce improved Clinical and Fiscal outcomes. Gain insight into the following areas:

  • How the Patient-Driven Groupings Model(PDGM) outcomes can exceed PPS era results
  • The why and how of Value-Based care programs
  • Addressing the Home Health Culture Change required for success
  • How VBP Expansion regulations are the natural enemy of Home Health recertification
  • How to employ Outcome and Assessment Information Set (OASIS)-E to better outcomes under the PDGM
  • Why the PAC PPS will alter Home Health Utilization for acute care episodes
  • How the PAC PPS will modify all Home Health programming
  • How to lead your referral sources through the changes

With a Value-Based Home Health platform as the basis of the rewired Acute Care Episode that goes into effect in 2025 under the PAC PPS, now is the time to transition your agency for success. Home Health Providers who successfully complete this transition learn how to replace home care volume practices with real-time clinical management, and they report improved employee satisfaction as a result. Make sure you attend this important webinar series and start your journey on the Value path required for Home Health success today.
