Join HCAF for this informative chat about hot topics affecting the Private Duty home care sector. As a benefit of membership, these monthly online programs are offered at no cost to Private Duty members. This Month's Topic: Legal Industry Updates, Challenges, and Regulatory Concerns Private Duty home cares are never without some regulatory hoop or hurdle to try to conquer. During last month’s chat, HCAF's Bobby Lolley and Kyle Simon discussed broadening the scope of what a home health aide could do WITH the supervision of a registered nurse. Certainly, this scenario could lead to liability issues when there is a breakdown in the delegation and training of duties. The Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) will certainly need to complete the rulemaking process for these new laws but discussions like this will help HCAF advocate for clear guidance that protects everyone involved. This month we will strive to flesh out some of those thorny legal issues with attorney Susan St. John, Esq., of Florida Healthcare Law Firm. Join us for this month’s chat to hear what she has been seeing and helping with lately. Take advantage of the opportunity to ask questions on this and other topics regarding: Regulatory compliance Health care business operations and transactions Telemedicine and telehealth.

With the onset of the Patient-Driven Groupings Model (PDGM) during the pandemic era, many home health providers have failed to address the operational changes required to manage rehab under the new value-based model. As a result of the PDGM removing rehab visits from the payment calculation, many agencies have struggled with changes required to manage rehab content and outcomes. Recent work with multiple home health providers since the onset of the PDGM has revealed the connection between PDGM-compliant rehab programs, 5-Star Ratings, and optimal reimbursement. During this four-part webinar series, attendees will learn how Medicare positioned rehab management at the center of the PDGM despite removing per/visit therapy payments. Discover how to utilize the FIL (Functional Impairment Level) successfully to deliver value-based rehab programs based on the content modifications required for PDGM outcome success. In that manner, providers can develop the OASIS accuracy necessary for optimal reimbursement, while simultaneously establishing the care pathways required for 5-Star Ratings, single-digit readmissions, and optimal fiscal margins. This exciting series breaks down the Medicare approach to the PDGM’s development to assure an understanding of rehab changes and how to achieve compliance with your therapy staff and programs. Beginning with a 10,000-foot view of the hidden value opportunities in the PDGM’s rehab regulations, home health administrators, managers and supervisors will gain insight into how to rewire therapy for new levels of success. In subsequent presentations, the development of PDGM-compliant rehab plans of care (POCs) and visit content can assure a value-based therapy episode. Finally, required rehab content necessary for skill, and denials occurring under the PDGM will round out where we are today in terms of qualified therapy expectations. The series concludes with a summary of the PDGM’s rehab POC development and in-episode delivery from admission to discharge, with a nod to future IMPACT Act reforms that will modify rehab even more. Don’t miss the exciting and informative series to optimize your rehab programs for PDGM success. Course Author -  Arnie Cisneros, PT Read More
