In this episode, Nick Seabrook of BlackTree Healthcare Consulting educates me on the new Patient-Driven Groupings Model (PDGM). He outlines the "new" elements of this major shift in Home Health reimbursement, how it will impact agencies, and touches on what agencies can do now to get ready for this.
Your Home Health Agency will be surveyed soon. With all the changes that are constant in the world of Home Health, one thing that does not change is the importance of preparing well for a surveyor to walk through your door - especially with new Conditions of Participation and outcome-driven care now the norm. How to prepare for and perform well in your next Survey should not be a secret.
In this episode, I get to the bottom of Pre-Claim Review, and the "new" version of PCR called Review Choice Demonstration, thanks to Aaron Little of BKD. This new podcast episode goes really in depth on the origin of PCR, and how it ultimately came to its end. It also sheds light on what to expect with the resurrected version!
Providing quality and regular Chronic Disease Education to your clinicians can feel like something that you have to do, rather than an initiative for Healthcare providers to improve Outcomes and increase reimbursement. However, this Case Study demonstrates just the opposite!
Education is key to assuring quality care for patients. The better educated the staff, the lower the costs for the entire health care system.
Effective care coordination and case management are dependent upon the interdisciplinary team working together towards collaborative goals and coordinating patient care in a proactive manner. Effective case management can enhance patient outcomes by planning a course of interventions and developing a plan to achieve the goal. This webinar will provide an understanding of what an effective case management model looks like and how you can ensure its success within your agency to ensure compliance with the CoP’s.
Addressing the Social Determinants of health will be the most important factor of health care reform. This webinar will discuss what Social Determinants are, and how they can help you better understand your patient. In addition, we will discuss how Social Determinants affect access to health services, Re-Hospitalizations, & Individual Behaviors. An excellent and timely learning experience!
