Katie Wehri of Healthcare Provider Solutions is back. The Continuous Home Care (CHC) level of care has been an area of focus from authorities and misused by some hospices. This webinar explains not only the criteria for billing this level of care but will also clear up myths about CHC, share examples of situations that meet the criteria for CHC and those that do not, and address common operational issues with this level of care.
This webinar, presented by Katie Wehri, CHPC, of Healthcare Provider Solutions, compares and contrasts the basics of Hospice Care vs. Palliative Care – including their similarities and differences. Katie helps you understand the history and evolution of hospice and palliative care, while also explaining the best use of both Hospice and Palliative Care, and their impact on the patient, consumer, and also the healthcare provider.
Said one attendee, "This was a fabulous insight in to the difference between Palliative Care and Hospice."
In this episode, Tripp Matthews of Curaport and Danielle Pierotti of Elevating HOME are joined by Ryan Cavanaugh, CIO of Fusion Healthcare, and Teresa Craig, VP of Client Strategy at Netsmart Technologies. The second episode is about Technology as it relates to Policy and Regulatory matters in Homecare. We discuss where Technology has driven policy changes, and also how Technology is enabling Regulatory Compliance for Homecare providers.
An interesting tangent was taken about the struggles of many agencies to afford the technologies that would further enhance their compliance with policies and regulations. Also, how the adoption and usage of Technology is still much of the problem when it comes to the intersection of Technology and Homecare.
When you want to kick your recruitment efforts up a notch, it's time to implement text messaging. When you add mass SMS as a form of communication, you will reach a wide audience of potential recruits. The younger crowd prefers text messaging over emails and phone calls. If you aren't using a text messaging platform, you are missing out on a big demographic of job candidates. As you continue to excel as a recruiter, it's time to find a text messaging software platform to reach your recruits faster.
In this special mini-series of podcasts, the folks of ElevatingHOME have joined forces with Curaport to delve into the world of Homecare and its usage of Technology. There will be several episodes through the month of August.
In this initial episode, Tripp Matthews of Curaport and Danielle Pierotti of Elevating HOME are joined by Mike Wons, CTO of the State of Illinois, and Tracey Moorhead, CEO of ElevatingHOME. The first episode is fundamentally an overview of where the Homecare industry is relative to its use of Technology. Much of the conversation is around why aren't more Homecare agencies utilizing Technology to its fullest, and how that can change.
Also, some obstacles to this utilization is discussed, as well as why there is so much optimism about this trend changing in the months and years to come.
This is a great series, and we are happy to have you on this journey with us!
With the needed change in GIP utilization, hospice agencies are struggling to keep Inpatient Unit (or Hospice House) beds full. More are offering residential care (routine home care level of care in a hospice house or inpatient unit) and finding it difficult to meet all the regulations for these patients who typically have a longer length of stay than patients receiving inpatient care. Katie Wehri of Healthcare Provider Solutions delivers valuable education on this.
