In the second of a three-part series, the focus is on the Home Health Groupings Model (HHGM) – which will radically change all things reimbursement for the home health industry and it is projected to reduced HH spending in 2019 alone by up to $950 million. This session also instructs how the industry can fight this change through participation in the Rule-Making Process to help minimize the impact and/or postpone its implementation.
John Reisinger, of Innovative Financial Solutions for Home Health brings his vast experience and expertise to enable understanding and practical application of how HHGM is going to impact your agency. In this session, John focuses on the proposed methodology change in reimbursement, the expected financial impacts at both the industry and individual agency levels, and what we can do to try to impact and/or delay this proposal.
Our world is becoming increasingly culturally diverse. This is not a political statement, but rather a reality that indeed impacts how care is delivered to patients. In this webinar, presented by the dynamic Dr. Gilbert Marez, you will learn to identify various cultural signs that may increase a clinician’s and support staff’s awareness about concepts and preferences of patients of different cultural and ethnic backgrounds. Come learn how to provide true care in a manner that can be appreciated by all people!
Clinicians are taught clinical pathways. They have protocols for visits and treatments. This structure helps ensure a standard of care and creates repeatable outcome. Protocols reduce care variation and performance variation resulting in significant improvement in outcomes. The overall purpose is to improve outcomes by providing a mechanism to coordinate care and reduce fragmentation and ultimately cost.
What about how we approach our referral cycle? The best way to help support our sales & marketing representatives is to give them the skills they need to follow a referral generating system to a profit pathway. This webinar by Melanie Stover will help you improve these skills.
This webinar series will cover the significant changes from a financial and operational perspective of the Proposed Home Health PPS Rule for 2018. This first webinar is an overview of the significant changes; especially highlighting significant and potentially unexpected changes. We will also identify how the CMS projected impact to industry reimbursement is commonly different than what it is for most agencies throughout the industry, and review how interested parties and comment and impact this and other regulations.
In this fifth and final episode of the Homecare & Technology Podcast Series, Tripp Matthews of Curaport and Danielle Pierotti of Elevating HOME are joined by Ann Meehan of AHIMA (the American Health Information Management Association), and Ian Juliano, CEO of Excel Health. This episode is a look back on the previous elements that have been discussed during this podcast series: Policy & Compliance, Financial factors, and Quality Data and how they all fit in the Homecare & Technology marriage.
This discussion goes further, and looks at Technology and its role in Homecare from an Information Governance and Strategic Leadership perspective. A great encapsulation of this entire series!
This has been a great series, and we are thankful that you have gone on this journey with us!
