On November 21, the Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced new regulations requiring vaccination, and in the case of the OSHA rule, vaccination or mandatory weekly testing. Notably, CMS’s vaccination mandate applies to 15 types of providers and suppliers, including home health and hospice agencies, and in total covers more than 17 million health care workers and approximately 76,000 health care facilities. After extensive litigation, the OSHA rule has been enjoined nationwide by the US Supreme Court, and all of the injunctions affecting the CMS rule have been terminated.

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

[3616] 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.

Outsourcing Your Back Office

Which scenarios make the most sense to outsource the accounting function of the agency and much more.

HCSSA Topic(s) Addressed: §558.259[d][4]agency responsibilities §558.260[a][3]basic principles of management in a licensed health-related setting §558.260[a][7]financial management Program Description: Many agencies are looking for more and more ways to trim the expenses from their overhead and therefore recognize a stronger bottom line profit. One significant cost savings they take advantage of is outsourcing work that can easily be outsourced while leaving the owners and operators in control of their businesses. There are many back office functions that can be outsourced such as payroll, billing and QA – but accounting is an often overlooked back office function that can also be easily outsourced to provide the agency a better bottom line, reduced administrative staff costs and less back office management needed. Not only can this be a cost savings but it can also really simplify the operations – less staff to manage and knowing that someone who is skilled at that activity is handling it. In this session we will discuss which scenarios make the most sense to outsource the accounting function of the agency, how it works and what solutions are out there to assist in finding the right mix of outsourcing the work but still maintaining control.

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.

Bias, as defined by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation (ANCC COA/LSNA) is the “tendency or inclination to cause partiality, favoritism, or influence.” Commercial bias may occur when a CNE activity promotes one or more product(s) (drugs, devices, services, software, hardware, etc.). This definition is not all inclusive and participants may use their own interpretation in deciding if a presentation is biased. The ANCC COA is interested in the opinions and perceptions of participants at approved CNE activities, especially in the presence of actual or perceived bias in continuing education. Therefore, ANCC invites participants to access their “ANCC Accreditation Feedback Line” to report any noted bias or conflict of interest in the education activity. The toll free number is 1(866) 262-9730. TAHC&H Faculty/Presenter(s): Candyce Slusher, LVN, CDCS, Owner of SLUSHER Consulting​ About the Presenter(s):
