This session will spell out the rewards and penalties in play in the program, including up-to-the-minute results of initial payments adjustments released by CMS in January 2018.
In this session, two leading home health policy experts will explain how and when the HHGM – along with other major proposals related to Value-Based Purchasing, Quality Reporting Provisions and OASIS measures – will impact home care organizations, and what advance steps must be taken to prepare for their arrival.
The changing healthcare landscape bodes well for home care to demonstrate its value across the care continuum, and thereby expand its role and create new opportunities.
