    Healthcare changes have hit the Home Health industry head on, challenging many long-standing beliefs about delivering care in the home. Most of the reforms aren’t focused directly on Home Health; they are primarily related to Medicare’s rewiring of the Care Continuum in terms of Volume to Value.

    Home Health administrators may find the reforms a confusing set of care directives that fail to relate to the home care industry they know.

    Learn the effects of specific IMPACT Act reforms, and operational processes that address each reform to produce improved Clinical and Fiscal outcomes.
    Gain insight into the following areas:

    • How PDGM outcomes can exceed PPS era results
    • The why and how of Value-Based care programs
    • Addressing the Home Health Culture Change required for success
    • How VBP Expansion regulations are the natural enemy of Home Health recertification
    • How to employ OASIS-E to better outcomes under the PDGM
    • Why the PAC PPS will alter Home Health Utilization for acute care episodes
    • How the PAC PPS will modify all Home Health programming
    • How to lead your referral sources through the changes
