Unlike other Medicare service providers, clinicians in the home health care industry are isolated as they plan care, develop service utilization, and complete documentation. Studies show that a team approach increases job satisfaction and accuracy -- so why aren’t we doing this in the home health care industry? Most agencies have clinicians tied up in a never-ending loop of repeated corrections and returns causing frustration, extra work, after hours documentation, and high turnover. Learn how to develop and utilize OASIS data during the home visit, implement the evidence-based care plan using the referring diagnosis (not the subjective nursing assessment), and bring the claim to a RAP-ready state as the clinician leaves the home.

The focus of recent health care reform efforts for CMS providers is the shift from “volume to value,” including home health agencies that deliver care to homebound clients. A review of the latest program updates reveals a consistent effort to address and improve the value quotient of home care services; rebasing, value-based purchasing (VBP), Pre-Claim Review, and Alternative Payment Models (APM). In addition, other proposed refinements, such as episodic bundling for ACOs, reflect a value-based expectation from home health providers. HHSM presents the development of a value-based home health episode in this progressive presentation. By employing a chronologic, step-by-step review of the value construction of a contemporary home care program, attendees can identify opportunities to evolve their care programs in value terms. From intake to admissions, OASIS to point of care, care delivery to in-episode management, patient satisfaction to quality discharges; all aspects of the Home Health episode are addressed in terms of compliance with the Medicare Benefit Policy Manual Home Health Chapter 7. The panel of presenters will outline how they ensure the value development of home health programs, including the production of care targets and program delivery paths that lead to greater than 4.0 Star Ratings along with desired patient satisfaction scores. Case Studies and Interactive demos will be employed; don’t miss this important opportunity to gain insight into value care production.
