This webinar is an in-depth review of the many outcome reports that are now available to hospice. Reviewing and understanding the results of these outcomes are eventually going to have an impact on hospice reimbursement. Incorporation of these outcomes on a local, state and national level will align your agency to be the leader in the hospice industry.
With margins shrinking and competition growing, it’s critical to utilize industry-wide and agency specific data, not generalized assumptions to identify agency strengths & weaknesses as well as areas for growth & improvement in both sales activity and financial outcomes. Using current and historical trended data agencies can develop a plan to decrease operating costs, identify key areas of margin improvement and focus on specific tasks to impact change.

Tracey Moorhead, President & CEO of Elevating Home, joined me for a conversation about Elevating Home, the new national advocacy organization for Home & Community Based Services. This is a very informative discussion about how Elevating Home was formed, WHY it was formed, and what they are going to do in order achieve their mission of making Patient-Centered Care in the Home a fundamental pillar of our national healthcare structure.
We do learn more about Tracey, and how she got to where she is today, and what the plans are for this group now and in the future.
It is an ambitious and great thing Tracey and her group aim to do.

In April of this year, a two-year project came to fruition with the formation of a new National advocacy organization for the Home Health Care arena: Elevating Home. This article is an editorial perspective on this group, as well as an interview with the President & CEO of Elevating Home, Tracey Moorhead.
Aaron Little and Raymond Belles of BKD sat down with me at the NHPCO conference in Washington recently to discuss the recent happenings in the Home & Community Based Services arena.
We discuss the "pause" in the Pre-Claim Review initiative (which is a somewhat controversial part of this discussion) as well as the delay in the implementation of the new Conditions of Participation for Home Health. Raymond also discusses some of the new Alternate Payment Models that are emerging for Homecare - and what that means moving forward.
