Beginning January 1, 2016, the Center for Medicare and Medicaid implemented the HHVBP Model for all home health agencies (HHAs) in nine states: Massachusetts, Maryland, North Carolina, Florida, Washington, Arizona, Iowa, Nebraska, and Tennessee. Listen to lessons learned on how agencies improved their total performance scores (TPS). TPS determines if payments adjustments (adjusted upward or downward by up to 3% in 2018) are provided to the agency. The annual report, July 2018, Evaluation of the Home Health Value-Based Purchasing (HHVBP) Model, demonstrates improvements in specific OASIS measures. Even if your state is not currently under VBP, the improvements made by agencies under VBP can be utilized in your QAPI program or to improve your star rating.
- Discuss different methods utilized by agencies to increase their total performance score
- Learn which OASIS outcome & process measures were improved by VBP and tips for improving your agency scores
- Recognize ways to improve patient experience/HHCAHPS scores
