This program provides vital information at a time that is crucial in our industry! TAHC&H Faculty/Presenter(s): Brian Bruenderman, Stoneridge Partners & Joe Lynch, Stoneridge Partners About the Presenter(s):
Brian Bruenderman brings almost 20 years of M&A experience to Stoneridge Partners - nearly a decade has been devoted exclusively to companies serving the health and human services arena. Brian Bruenderman joined Stoneridge Partners after a successful stint as Director of Business Development for Almost Family, a leading provider of home health nursing, rehabilitation and personal care services with over 250 locations in 15 states. During his tenure, despite much uncertainty in the home health industry at the time, Almost Family acquired $160 million in annual revenues, including the largest transaction in the company’s history. Prior to Almost Family, Bruenderman was the Senior Director of Development for ResCare, Inc., a national human services company with more than $1.6 billion in revenue and operations in 42 states. Bruenderman's strategic approach to developing new markets through selective acquisitions led to $350 million in growth for ResCare and launched the company into the Fortune 1000. Today, he has been involved in the purchase of over 125 health and human service companies. Bruenderman received his Bachelor of Arts degree and Juris Doctor from the University of Louisville. While in college, he purchased several small businesses and credits his later success to that experience. His business background and legal education give him the skills and perspective to successfully negotiate transactions all the way through closing. Specifically, his almost two decades of involvement with strategic buyers gives him a unique insight into how they approach valuation, diligence and negotiation. This combination of education and experience makes him a valuable addition to any transaction. Bruenderman runs the Louisville office. About the Presenter(s):

Over the next 17 years, Joe steadily grew Reachout through both acquisition and organic growth into three operating companies in Dallas and Houston, employing more than 170 health care workers. In 2014, he sold his company to Humana. Throughout his career, he has been a leader in revenue growth and expansion via start-ups, acquisitions and organic growth through marketing and sales in both public and private companies.

PDGM Deep Dive – Best Practices for Optimal Outcomes (Operations/Payment/Wound Care)

This presentation will change your agency today and tomorrow. Presentation Info: TAHC&H Winter Conference 2022 | Dallas | Recorded for On-Demand Access Presentation Date | February 23, 2022 Program Description: Prior to the pandemic, most PDGM education focused on billing or coding aspects of the reform, with little attention to operational and care delivery requirements. As a result, many HH clinicians don’t understand exactly how PDGM works; the Value-based Operational changes, and the legacy HH approaches that compromise clinical and fiscal outcomes. With most Providers just returning to a pre-2020 level of care, many of these operational requirements remain un-addressed. This program addresses areas that directly affect quality care outcomes under PDGM, from both a front-line delivery and in-office managerial aspect. Learn how to hardwire for tangible results, driving costs down and fiscal margins up, while you improve Star Ratings with single digit readmissions. Learn PDGM Strategies to address case-Mix, POC development and in-episode control and wound management thru Case Studies and Outcome statistics.

[3624] Actionable VBP Business Intelligence Dashboards: Understanding and Taking Action on KPIs That Lead to Success
This presentation is a must for those wishing to streamline their operations and achieve VBP financial success. Presentation Info: TAHC&H Winter Conference 2022 | Dallas | Recorded for On-Demand Access Presentation Date | February 24, 2022 Program Description: Information overload describes the excess of information available to a person aiming to complete a task or make a decision; resulting in a poor decision or no decision being made. This often happens in the fast-paced world of home care operations. Leaders are inundated from metrics from multiple sources that are often not actionable and not concurrent. This leads to no action and poor outcomes. Understanding the value of KPIs is the first step to successful outcomes. Developing a business intelligence dashboard that contains the Metrics that Matter in the new world of Value Based Purchasing is the next and most critical step. Metrics should be easy to understand and lead operators to implement corrective action concurrently. Thus, turning a possible negative outcome into a positive one. Participants will walk away with an understanding of root cause analysis and multi contributing factors affecting metrics so that they can apply rapid corrective action measures.

No Client Left Behind: Taking QAPI Seriously in PAS

[3626] No Client Left Behind: Taking QAPI Seriously in PAS
Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement (QAPI) is often treated as a chore...but it's so much more than that! Presentation Info: TAHC&H Winter Conference 2022 | Dallas | Recorded for On-Demand Access Presentation Date | February 24, 2022 Program Description: Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement (QAPI) is often treated as a chore we have to "check off the list" to remain in compliance with regulations. But it's so much more than that. There's a reason that every successful organization in the world uses some version of QAPI as a measuring tool to continue to evolve and adapt in an ever-changing environment. Just because you don't bill medical insurance, doesn't mean that QAPI is less important than it is for home health and hospice. Private Duty agencies have a different, and in some ways deeper obligation to their clientele than medical providers. You're in their homes for extended periods of time, and become involved in many areas of their lives, including their general wellbeing. With this in mind, you'll learn how analyzing QA information and applying improved performance measures to the whole spectrum of service will not only enhance the quality of care you provide, but foster loyalty amongst your clients and employees.
