"Home health is in a constant state of flux. When we’re not dealing with the day to day of our clients and their needs, the industry is constantly bombarded with new regulations. CMS says this is to curb the rampant fraud in the industry. Home health, however, says that the federal government is out of touch, and has no idea of the importance home health serves our larger health care system. Navigating the compliance requirements of the payor while meeting the needs of patients and staff can only be done through system-ness and adherence to standardized patient care. As we navigate the waters of VBP, the Home Health Groupings Model (HHGM), and the additional Alternative Payment Models mandated by CMS, we need to evolve or retire our provider numbers. Ultimately, we need to look carefully at how we provide care, reduce costs, and increase outcomes. Changing our processes to be proactive rather than reactive we need to learn the lessons of those who have gone before us, to not only save our businesses, but grow them." - Kristi Bajer and Michael McGowan
