There is no choice! CMS is requiring that every sector of health care – every sector – move to a new form of reimbursement: value-based purchasing. Quality outcomes will matter and will eventually affect how every home health agency in the country is reimbursed.
It is a simple payment system! Do well and you will be rewarded. Do poorly and you will be penalized. Home health is moving into high risk times… and agencies must be prepared.
What do you have to control?
To be competitive or to reduce your risk, you have to control four areas. Better yet, you need to be in the top third of the four most critical measures in value-based purchasing:
- Home Health Compare – Top 1/3 in scores
- Hospitalization Rates – Lowest 1/3 in scores
- HHCAHPS Scores – Top 1/3 in scores
- Cost – Lowest 1/3 in cost
Move quickly – accelerate!
Agencies can control their quality outcomes. Agencies can improve results and do it while controlling cost. Best of all, agencies can quickly and assertively move to become a leader in the new Triple Aim value-based health care environment. How? A three-step program that builds on Fazzi’s 30 years of consulting, lean projects and national best practice research. Targeted changes with targeted valued-based outcomes.
