For Home Health providers, the OASIS process is the central driver for the success, or failure, of any new initiative to produce improved outcomes with reduced cost. Value-based Purchasing is essentially a Darwin-esque “survival of the fittest” for Home Health Agencies. Most any problem an agency is facing today can be traced back in some way to how the initial OASIS was completed.
To succeed today, you're required to abandon the “Norms” of the past twenty years without destroying the structure and function of your agency. Michael McGowan, CEO of Opera Care, delivers a powerful and eye-opening education session to help you fully understand what is happening with Service Utilization Review and how you can set your agency up for success.
In an episode that defines the name of the podcast, Michael McGowan of Operacare is our guest this week. We learn about how Michael went from field nurse to OASIS expert, and how his new company, Operacare, is starting to take the industry by storm.
Michael shares his insights on how Regulators look at clinicial documentation versus how Providers view it, and then really discusses one of the root causes of the maelstrom of change in Home Health Care.
A fascinating and informational conversation to say the least.
Nick Seabrook of BlackTree Healthcare Consulting returns for a discussion on two of the most important conferences in the healthcare industry. He recounts the 100 conference in Florida, particularly what was on the minds of the leaders of the Homecare industry (hint: Trump).
He also talks about his first visit to the HIMSS conference, the enormity of that show, and what the post-acute care space can learn from this conference.
We also get pretty candid about the current state of the Homecare "voice" in the legislative and policy landscape - and how our industry can improve their standing.
Josh Pickus, CEO of Optima Healthcare Solutions is the guest for this episode. Josh and Tripp discuss the state of the healthcare industry, particularly the post-acute care space in which Optima Healthcare Solutions is operating. Josh talks about Optima and their cloud-based technology solutions, as well as why they recently launched their Homecare-specific functionality to accompany their Rehabilitation and other post-acute care solutions.
We always ask our guests: So What, Who Cares? when it comes to their company or solution, and Josh's answer is pretty powerful.
