There is a myth in the Post-Acute Care market that Hospice agencies have less to worry about than their Home Health brethren. This is false. One area of constant struggle for Hospice agencies is improving their patients’ Length of Stay. This webinar will teach how to use your data to increase your hospice’s length of stay while promoting early referrals and ensuring your patients receive the maximum benefit.
After a long absence, the So What, Who Cares? podcast is back with John Griscavage of PlayMaker Health. We discuss his dynamic organization: What they do, why they acquired ViaDirect, and how they can impact growth in the post-acute health care market.
In this "InBoxing" article, Aaron Little of BKD discusses (the artist formerly known as) Pre-Claim Review. The Medicare home health pre-claim review (PCR) process implemented in 2016 created extensive operational challenges and payment delays and was eventually “paused” in 2017. A new threat to operational efficiency and cash flow has been proposed to replace PCR in the form of the Review Choice Demonstration (RCD).
Aaron and I discuss why it has resurfaced, what has changed, what will be different this time around, and a new name for this significant regulatory change.
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.
Because our society has been anesthetized and isolated from death and dying for as long as any of us can remember, it has become a taboo subject and a “medical” situation. The greatest gift that Hospice agencies can give their patients and families is the knowledge of what the future holds and discuss it in such a manner that they are able to be “participants” in the very natural process rather than “victims” of “failed medical interventions” to keep the patient alive indefinitely/forever. This webinar will help Hospice clinicians give this gift.
