The Hospice Finance & Operations Intensive

The hospice finance and operations intensive will provide hospice management and leadership insights on key performance issues, such as what the proposed Medicare changes for 2022 could mean to your financial and operational performance, how to manage your potential risk exposure from current compliance initiatives, how to successfully manage your cap liability risks, how to compare your KPIs to the latest financial and operational KPIs of successful hospices, and how to anticipate what the hospice VBID model could mean to your operations and revenue cycle.

The intensive will conclude with a guided panel discussion with NC/SC and other state providers and industry leaders, as well as BKD representatives, to gain insights on to-date experiences with the hospice VBID model, the financial viability of palliative care and other emerging programs, strategies for collaborating with other health care providers in your market, preparing operations for new quality and care index scores and the industry relevance of quality reporting, and other key issues important for successful hospices to manage.

Prior to the webinar, a Zoom link will be e-mailed to you. You will need to register through this link to attend the webinar. After registering via Zoom, you will receive a confirmation email which will include a join link to access the webinar, a dial-in number and an access code to listen in via telephone. You will also be sent any pertinent handouts if available. 

Registration Fee:
The registration fee covers one individual’s access. Multiple site participation from individuals within your agency will require separate registration. For example: if your agency has paid for 1 participating registration but 3 people from your agency would like to attend, your agency will need to pay a separate registration fee for all 3 participants. In addition, if your agency has sent in 1 registration but 3 people from your agency register through the Zoom link, your agency will be invoiced the registration fee for the additional 2 registrations. The handouts will be emailed to you to the email address you provide. Please feel free to provide an additional email address as a backup. If you would like to register more than 10 attendees from your agency, please contact [email protected] for discount group pricing.

In the event of cancellation, AHHC/SCHCHA will retain, or charge, 50% of the initial registration fee, per registrant, to cover administrative overhead. Once written cancellation is received, an AHHC/SCHCHA staff member will review for approval. If your cancellation is approved, we will email back a signed and dated copy of the cancellation that your agency should retain on file in case of questions. Substitutions may be made up to the day of the event. Please contact Richard Lawrence if you have any questions at [email protected]
