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

Hop aboard the Outcome and Assessment Information Set (OASIS) “E” train with J’non Griffin of SimiTree Healthcare Consulting for this full-day recording of a hybrid workshop and get ready for the trip ahead. The transition to this version will be a challenge but it should not be a bumpy ride if your team, that is involved in OASIS data collection and review, are prepared in advance. After boarding this OASIS-E train either in-person or online from the convenience of anywhere, in-depth stops will be made at all the version changes including the new aspects related to social determinants of health, increased behavioral assessments, and how it will help facilitate the transfer of health information between post-acute providers. Understanding how the updated version of OASIS impacts the start, resumption and discharge of care is critical to succeeding both clinically and financially under your value-based purchasing journey.

Remaining compliant with HIPAA and other applicable laws when electronically communicating with patients is essential to protect health care providers against breaches, privacy lawsuits, and other negative consequences. With the increasing federal and state regulatory focus on cybersecurity and the nationally-proclaimed battle against cybercriminals, health care providers can no longer put privacy and security compliance on the “to do” list for when there is time and money. Fines and other penalties associated with breach events have become increasingly severe and can cripple any provider and put smaller providers out of business. This webinar will assist providers to become more compliant and will provide information on actions that can be taken to fit within the relatively new “safe harbor” for best cybersecurity practices. This safe harbor can help providers reduce or eliminate penalties when under investigation by the federal Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office for Civil Rights (HIPAA enforcement agency) relating to a security breach, audit, or other investigation.
