When the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) introduced the Patient-Driven Groupings Model (PDGM) to home health, it marked the arrival of the first IMPACT Act reform that would transform home care from the Home Health Prospective Payment System (PPS) era to the value-based model of tomorrow. PDGM changes for the home health industry made sweeping changes designed to address inefficient volume practices in the PPS model. Focused on elements of the PPS model that were based on volume, Medicare made changes to prompt desired value practices. These changes included tying home health payments to start of care (SOC) Outcome and Assessment Information Set (OASIS) accuracy, establishing 30/60-day episodes, removing therapy visit totals from the payment formula, and much more. In addition, future home health reforms are built on successful PDGM programming, so rewiring care processes and producing successful value-based outcomes are required for future success.  This webinar will feature the story of three home health providers, one of which is a fellow Floridian and HCAF member! All three providers have reinvented care development and delivery processes to assure full compliance with the PDGM changes. By approaching the elements of the reform in a step-by-step manner, they addressed all departments in their agency to rewire processes to support the reforms. Each of the providers outlined in this webinar is located in different parts of the country, but they all responded to the PDGM in a similar manner, and we will review their results to identify trends and similarities that all home health agencies can employ to gain improved outcomes.  Every home health department needs modification for PDGM performance success. In reviewing specific results per agency, we will see the effects on rewiring intake and scheduling, SOC OASIS accuracy protocols, and the ongoing refitting of in-episode care delivery based on changing patient acuity.

ADRs (Additional Documentation Requests) are still very much a part of our ever-changing healthcare landscape and while they can require extra time on the part of the provider to address, they can also present a tremendous opportunity for the agency to learn where their weaknesses lie. This presentation will focus on the various types of ADRs and how to respond and will delve into F2F documentation and medical necessity requirements, that qualify a home health beneficiary for services. You will also learn about the most common denial reasons and how your agency can avoid them, as well as pre-payment and post-payment ADRs and their impact on RCD. Please plan to join us and learn how to use the ADR process as a way to not only identify what your agency’s strengths are, but more importantly learn about your opportunities for improvement and how to shore up any weaknesses in your documentation.    Course Author: Lisa MCClammy, BSN, RN, COS-C, HCS-D  Read More
