"The Expanded Home Health Value-Based Purchasing (HHVBP) Model represents the most significant change to the home health sector since the introduction of the Prospective Payment System (PPS) over 20 years ago. By rewiring the home model in value-based terms, Medicare has linked payment to outcomes, rewarding providers who deliver efficient care programs.    Further complicating the Expanded HHVBP Model is the introduction of the Outcome and Assessment Information Set Version E (OASIS-E) as the data collection tool for this value-based reform. Through extensive education focused on both OASIS-E and the HHVBP structure, most providers are familiar with the changes they produce. With the introduction of OASIS-E as the data collection tool for this value-based reform, the Expanded HHVBP Model becomes even more complex. Due to extensive education on both OASIS-E and HHVBP, providers are familiar with the changes they produce. But the challenge is rewiring operations to maximize your chances of success, and most of us don't know exactly where or how to start.   Considering that six out of 10 home health agencies will fail to qualify for the HHVBP bonus, it will be imperative for providers to address the payment loss they will experience in the coming years. This progressive, interactive presentation addresses these and other essential topics for success under the HHVBP."    Speaker/Course Author - Arnie Cisneros & Kimberly McCormick Read more
