In this informative session, we will explore the upcoming changes to the Medicare Home Health Value-Based Purchasing (HHVBP) model scheduled for 2025. Crafted to elevate the assessment and recognition of high-quality home health care, these adjustments utilize 2023 as a baseline year, emphasizing the need for agencies to proactively acquaint themselves with these modifications.
• Measure Replacement and Removal: Understand the changes to the HHVBP measures, including the replacement of the "Discharge to Community" measure with "Discharge to Community Post-Acute Care" and the removal of other measures.
• Newly Introduced Potentially Preventable Hospitalization (PPH) Measure: Delve into the implications of the newly introduced PPH measure, which will evaluate and mitigate potentially preventable hospitalizations during home health care.
• Consolidated Discharge Function Score: Examine the consolidation of the "Total Normalized Composite Change in Mobility" and "Change in Self-Care" measures into a single measure, which will streamline assessments using Section GG items.
• Improving GG Item Responses: Discover the importance of GG items in determining the Discharge Functional Score, which contributes to 20% of the Total Performance Score in value-based purchasing. Learn strategies to enhance clinician familiarity with GG items and ensure accurate Outcome and Assessment Information Set (OASIS) documentation.
Equip your agency for the future by acquiring a comprehensive understanding of these changes and formulating strategies to adeptly navigate the evolving landscape of the HHVBP program.
