What’s now and what’s new? Presentation Info: TAHC&H Event Administrator Conference | Rich-Media Presentation Capture | Online On-Demand Access Presentation Date | November 8, 2023 Program Description: What’s now and what’s new? The TNC is currently 17.5% of the Total Performance Score of VBP, but CMS is implementing drastic changes. Even though CMS is omitting the TNC from its programs and replacing it with the Discharge Function score, the TNC scores are still important through payment year 2026. Now is the time to ramp up for the first performance year for Discharge Function, so learn what your plan should be for 2024. ACH and ED Use claims data currently comprise 35% of your Total Performance Scores. Even though your ACH and ED Use scores are being jettisoned in favor of the new PPH, the ACH and ED Use will still impact your payment until 2026. New to VBP are the PPH and the Discharged to Community (claims-based) quality measures, which together will comprise 35% and will require some adjustments in your Performance Improvement Programs. PPH will include hospitalizations (both ACH and LTCH) and observation stays. The DTC measure will include readmissions for up to 31 days after discharge. Lisa discusses what actions can be taken now to improve those numbers.
