    Using Relevant Metrics and KPI's to Drive Achievement of Agency Objectives

    Achieving agency success, or even just survival, is more complex than ever. The main goals - providing excellent client care, achieving growth, and optimizing financial results, are inescapably intertwined. However, it is inordinately inefficient to review and react to reams of data to determine which areas require attention to accomplish agency objectives. This presentation discusses how to identify relevant metrics and KPI's (Key Performance Indicators), based on agency objectives and environment, that can be used to impact behaviors needed to achieve those goals.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Identify relevant metrics and KPI's which will optimize home care agency achievement of objectives from a financial and operational perspective.
    • Ascertain the overlapping impacts of metrics from different areas of the organizational process.
    • Determine how to compile these metrics based on agency management system reports.

    Strategies for Your Agency's Rehospitalization Reduction Program

    Rehospitalizations continue to be a focus of health care quality strategy programs, including Home Health Based Purchasing. The home health care industry serves patients with many risk factors for reshospitalization, including the aged population and those with multiple medical and social comorbidities. This five-part series will focus on how reduction of rehospitalizations in the home health space is monitored and incentivized through quality and payment programs and will include management strategies for some of the most common comorbid conditions in our patient population: Health Failure [HR], Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease [COPD], Diabetes Mellitus [DM] and Mental Health Crises.

    Objectives

    • Recognize areas of policy and practice to be assessed and/or modified that will lead to better quality of care as it relates to chronic, comorbid condition management and rehospitalization rates for the agency's population served.
    • Demonstrate an understanding of Home Health Value Based Purchasing Measures and how they are impacted by comorbid conditions.
    • Distinguish status quo interventions versus best practices for chronic disease management, leading to better patient outcomes, decreased rehospitalization rates, and proper payment for care in the current Home Health Care environment.
    • Identify areas of improvement, both personally and agency-wide, where best practices can be implemented to reduce cost, increase coordination and communication in a patient-centered care model, and improve quality of care and quality of life for the home health patients they serve.
