Preparing for VBP: How to Become a 5-Star Agency

Presenter:  Arnie Cisneros.  Recent Home Health reforms have been coming in a fast and furious manner; PDGM, PCR, and EVV are just a few of the latest. By focusing on VBP-based clinical outcomes, Medicare is able to continue the recent “Volume to Value” shift. But the national expansion of Value-Based Purchasing, expected in 2021, will challenge Providers in terms of clinical quality care management. For these reasons, Providers located in states already on VBP universally express that they wish they had started sooner. The culture change required for the shift to value that produces these outcomes is significant; it is exactly the opposite of “flipping a switch”. Leadership at the Provider level is required to help your staff and clinicians through to achieve success, and the sooner the better to introduce and create a functional value path for success under VBP. Don’t miss this progressive presentation that illuminates the path to 5 Star Ratings so you can start today on the care path to 5 Stars.
