Home Care Summit - 2021

Tuesday, January 19, 2021 at 7:30 AM CT

Summary

We had hoped to see each of you in person at our 2021 Summit, however, in light of the continuing risk to transmitting COVID to the individuals you serve, as well as the governor’s continued order of no mass gatherings, we are excited to present this year’s event Live Online. In addition to the great schedule of live presentations on January 19, OHCA members will receive complimentary access to a host of on-demand educational programs.

Agenda

  • 8:30 am Check in
  • 8:45 am OHCA Regulatory Update/COVID19
  • 9:45 am BREAK
  • 10:00 am PDGM- Where are we now - The new Medicare reimbursement system known as the Patient Driven Grouping Model (PDGM) was effective on January 1, 2020, which was one of the biggest clinical and reimbursement changes that the Home Health Industry has seen in over 20 years. This session will focus on factors and programs that impact Home Health Agencies (HHAs) from a compliance, clinical, and reimbursement perspective. It will provide an in-depth look at the challenges HHAs are currently facing, include practical examples from Medicare Part A record reviews, reveal common Outcome and Assessment Information Set (OASIS) coding opportunities, discuss ICD-10 coding, strategize how to minimize Low Utilization Payment Adjustment (LUPAs) episodes and show how diagnosis subjectivity and selection plays a significant role in PDGM.  This session will include the estimated financial impact on HHAs based on assessment, performance and compliance under this new reimbursement system.
  • 11:00 am Demystifying Data and Analytics for Home Health
  • Economic Pressures, Regulatory changes, Shift from FFS to Value based programs, narrowing of the referral networks and formation of post-acute preferred networks – means that providers must leverage data insights to drive competitive advantage.In this session we will focus on demystifying the common myths in Adopting a Data and Analytics strategy to complement your EHR. Analytics provides agencies with quick insights into the various areas of their business. This provides agencies with the ability to identify trends quickly that may have a negative impact to the patient’s quality of care in addition to their bottom line.
  • 12:00 pm BREAK
  • 12:30 pm Violence in Home Care: Keeping Your Staff Safe in Client’s Homes - In August of 2020, a respiratory therapist was brutally attacked in her client’s home in nearby Canton, Ohio.  While survey results vary wildly, some report that as much as 61% of home health care workers have experienced some form of violence while performing their duties.  Issues surrounding under-reporting and education leave little in the form of resources.  During this presentation, we will discuss barriers to reporting, regulatory considerations, employee training, executive engagement and post incident support surrounding acts of workplace violence in home care.  We will also leave attendees with a Toolkit for assistance in developing policies in their own agencies. 
  • 1:30 pm Wound Care for Home Health- As wound care works toward coordination of disciplines, health care in general is also demanding what is known as patient-centered care, where patients can expect comprehensive care seamlessly no matter their location. Healthcare revolves around each patient, with care teams of specialists being formed to tailor to each patient’s needs. This session aims to review wound etiologies and basic management of each while addressing the need to promote seamless wound care continuity among healthcare settings. Within the home health arena, clinicians and administrators must be resourceful to optimize supply acquisition and meet regulatory criteria to provide optimal wound care. This session will summarize the key criteria needed to provide comprehensive wound management within the home care setting.
  • 2:30 pm BREAK
  • 2:45 pm Reducing Readmissions with Discharge Planning- Reducing readmissions should be a goal for every home health agency. Discharge planning starts at admission, continues with coordination of care and should be ongoing through patient discharge. Join us to learn the steps involved in effective discharge planning, how to identify patients at high-risk for readmission and how to prevent unplanned hospital care through effective discharge planning.
