FREE PUBLISHER'S MESSAGE As we turn the corner into 2021, healthcare leaders should be asking themselves four key questions to address greater sustainability.
SUBSCRIBER CONTENT Beginning in 2021, several value-based payment models will begin the shift from fee-for-service to value-based. Earmark this as the transformation of payment reform for care at home providers and how they will be paid in the future.
SUBSCRIBER CONTENT New choices to receive care at home centers on patients receiving acute level care in the home. Non-traditional care at home models is expanding into a new era. The twist to non-traditional programs is to keep care at home leadership’s eyes wide open about the impact to their organizations. Waivers are changing rules, policies have changed, and the role of who can care for patients in the home is transforming models.
SUBSCRIBER CONTENT The invisible technology boundaries expand the rules of who can offer care in the home, how they will be paid, and it creates a less restrictive policy environment to deliver care at home. The opportunity to reshape care delivery and create a more efficient and cost-effective healthcare system is achievable because of the acceleration and adoption of technology.
How is Your Organization Rethinking Strategic Positioning to Offer Continuum-of-Care Services from Pre- And Post-Discharge to End-of-Life?
SUBSCRIBER CONTENT The question for leadership is how do you want to position your organization? As an integrator? Or as an aggregator? For care at home providers, the goal is to create a post-acute continuum model as patients transition from one care setting to another whether that be in-home personal care services, skilled home health, palliative care, or hospice.
SUBSCRIBER CONTENT Geographic direct-contracting model (GEO) is the latest CMS Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) model which allows Direct Contracting Entities to accept full financial risk for all traditional Medicare enrollees in their region. Three options enhance Medicare benefits and provide waivers for care in the home.
SUBSCRIBER CONTENT A growing number of initiatives are expanding to address social determinants of health. Payers, health systems, community-based organizations, and government entities are partnering together to create statewide efforts to improve community health and social care.
