The Home Health Value-Based Purchasing (VBP) Model is expected to improve coordination and health outcomes in home health, and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) demo has been underway in North Carolina since January 2016. But do you have all the information you need to transform your organization into a high performing agency under VBP? Beginning May 18 through July, AHHC will host webinars presented by national experts in Medicare billing, OASIS, and outcomes enhancement to help you obtain incentive for providing quality care with greater efficiency. 5-Star Consultants Sharon Litwin, RN, BSHS, MHA and Healthcare Provider Solutions’ Melinda Gaboury, COS-C, will cover topics ranging from bathing to bed transferring and discharging to drug education. As a series, these webinars focus on high priority improvement areas that impact VBP goals.

With the presentations being available for 6 weeks after, your team leaders, case managers and other frontline staff will also benefit from this series.
