Pre-Claim Review & Value-Based
Purchasing Webinar: Modify Your Care Processes for Success



OVERVIEW

Recently introduced home health reforms and proposals for ongoing future refinements to the home care model identify an industry quite different from what we’ve experienced during the PPS era. Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), Episodic Bundling, and other Alternative Payment models are followed by a series of program-altering proposals that target home health inefficiencies as a means of improving outcomes.

Many of the changes are currently seen as Medicare Demonstration Projects in a number of states, and Value–Based Purchasing (VBP) and Pre–Claim Review (PCR) are the most prominent examples. But Med Pac recommendations propose additional reforms, including decreasing payments for community-referred patients, splitting certification period payments into two 30-day totals, and removing therapy from the reimbursement model.

This webinar will outline where you can modify current protocols to prepare your agency for success in the future.



OBJECTIVES:

  • Outline proposed CMS home health programming and payment changes
  • Connect future care protocol changes to current care production and delivery methods
  • Propose preparatory steps to connect the home health care of today to the modified change requirements of the future
