What You Need To Know About Electronic Visit Verification

In this free webinar, sponsored by CellTrak, Darby Anderson discusses what EVV really means.  Because in December 2016, President Obama signed the 21st Century Cures Act. The act itself covers a variety of topics – and notably requires states to implement electronic visit verification (EVV) for Medicaid Personal Care  services and Home Health Care Services.  EVV offers many benefits to agencies and care providers, and choosing the right solution can lead to improved operating efficiency, caregiver communication, quality of care, and client satisfaction.

Under Presure - OASIS Service Utilization Review

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.

General Inpatient Care - How Hospice Agencies Can Get This Right

Continuing Education This course is approved for 1 contact hour(s) of Continuing Education for: Nursing

General Inpatient (GIP) care is one of the most targeted areas for fraud, abuse and waste in hospice, as targeted by the authorities, because it is one of the most misused levels of care. When a hospice patient is deemed by the interdisciplinary team to need this level of care, there are complex and serious medical issues that require greater levels of expertise and attention.  Although the significant majority of hospice patients never receive this level of care, it is the most scrutinized and poorly managed.

 

 

This excellent session was led by Katie Wehri, CHPC, of Healthcare Provider Solutions.  Her focus is:

 

  • Clearing up myths about how GIP should be used

  • Providing concrete, practical examples of how to and how NOT to use this level of care

  • Providing a summary of what has happened over the recent years relative to oversight activity for this level of care

Navigating Alternative Payment Models

CMS has made it clear that the current reimbursement models for healthcare delivery is not sustainable and is in the midst of significant change.  What this means for the Post-Acute Care industry is still somewhat murky, but make no mistake – new Alternative Payment Models are coming and will impact your organization.  Home Care providers can play an increasingly pivotal role in post-acute care delivery, however the key to playing this pivotal role is ensuring the entire organization has a clear understanding of what an Alternative Payment Model (APM) is and the risks associated with implementing these models. 

 

Mark Sharp and Raymond Belles of BKD conducted this educational presentation that will enhance your organization's ability to take a proactive approach to the inevitable reality of new reimbursement models.  Highlights of this session:

 

  • Understanding the Current Payment Reform Landscape
  • Outline an Alternative Payment Model
  • Identifying the Risk to Post Acute Organizations

Chronic Disease Education: The Key to Healthcare Organization Success

Continuing Education This course is approved for 1 contact hour(s) of Continuing Education for: Nursing

Over the last 30 years CMS [Center for Medicaid Medicare] has warned the health care community that Medicare as it was constructed could not survive.  Because of this, there has been increased focus on service delivery options and an increasing emphasis on quality care of the chronic diseases that account for 80% of the expenses for health care insurers. 

One missing link seems to be adequate aide education or lack thereof.  To address this issue, Ginny Kenyon of Kenyon HomeCare Consulting presented this webinar on WHY healthcare organizations need to have Chronic Disease education at the heart of their strategic initiatives, and how they can access and implement this education to their staff and clinicians.
