It is no secret that the workforce shortage in home-based care has reached crisis-level proportions. Despite industry leadership's best efforts, the gap between the number of people needing assistance and the number of workers available to deliver that care is accelerating at an unsustainable pace. In an effort to identify the overarching issues complicating recruitment and retention efforts, the National Association for Home Care & Hospice partnered with Mission Care Collective to produce The State of the Direct Care Workforce, a national study that included data from over 67,000 caregivers, certified nursing assistants, and home health aides. In this groundbreaking study, the first of its kind, seven distinct types of caregiver were identified. This session will teach participants about each of these personas, how to recruit them, and, most importantly, how to tweak your organization's culture to retain them. The final report will be available for download. Read more

Could the world of home health get any more dramatic? Due to the reimbursement system's dependence on data collection, the recent global pandemic will impact benchmarks and trends in care practices for years to come. The after-effects, coupled with the national rollout of the Expanded Home Health Value-Based Purchasing (HHVBP) Model and ongoing refinements to the Patient-Driven Groupings Model (PDGM), will make it necessary for home health to adjust operationally and financially.
