The Home Health Financial Intensive

We are all familiar with using various Global Positioning Systems (GPS) to acquire the directions we need to get where we want to go. A key to getting there is knowing from what point you are starting and where you hope to end up. Likewise, in home health and hospice, to move forward we need to know where we are now. Expert speakers will provide information to help your agency assess the financial outcomes of past/current impacts on home health and hospice and how your agency’s responses to those impacts have in turn affected your financial outcomes.

Is your agency able to determine the financial effects of the following over the last two years?
  • CMS Probe and Educate 
  • Audits
  • Shifts in Market Share
  • New Models of Payment/Alternative Payment Models including Bundling/VBP/ACOs
  • Cuts in Medicare HH Reimbursement
  • Increased Managed Care
  • Emerging Population Health and Population Trends
  • Staff Readiness
  • Change in or Stagnate Patient Case Mix

Is your home health agency preparing prospectively for the coming impacts and trends? Drawing on a presentation given by Stephen Landers, MD, MPH, President/CEO of the VNA Health Group, Home Health Care 2024, the Ideal State, while the infrastructure of home health has been built around traditional Medicare services, there are innovations and new opportunities ahead that will require agencies to operate  differently.

This may require rethinking our services and operations by considering care plan best practices and niche marketing; considering expanding services beyond traditional Medicare to include palliative care and/or private duty to enhance patient supports; and different ways of tracking and trending data and using information technology. 

Attendees will walk away with a plan and tool for self-assessment as well as ideas for innovations centered around achieving the ideal Home Health State!
