About the Event

Off to the Races With HHVBP & PDGM

Combine the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Home Health Value-Based Purchasing (HHVBP) and their case-mix classification model, the Patient-Driven Groupings Model (PDGM) and you’ve got a competitive race as Medicare-certified home health agencies are going to find! Agencies are pitted against each other and given incentives for better quality care under the HHVBP while being forced to survive under the rate cuts and constant scrutiny of the PDGM model. CMS simultaneously seeks to enhance the current public reporting process and the outcome measures associated. January 2023 is the first month of the nationwide HHVBP rollout, but Florida was part of the “flying start” by being part of the demonstration project. Will that make a difference in Florida in the nationwide race? In this mega, dual-turbo presenter session, the HH Final Rule brief update to the rates and changes to the PDGM key components will be reviewed and analyzed. We will also review the pre-implementation reports from HHVBP and how agencies can use those moving forward and analyze how the HHVBP model affected outcome scores for every provider. Draft on Chris Attaya’s knowledge and interpretations from his heavy lifting and breakdown of statistical findings and benefit from his forecasts and guidance for your agency. Melinda Gaboury of Healthcare Provider Solutions will present her knowledgeable, very frank, and clear insights and suggestions on how to implement improvements within your agency and win the race.
