Scripting for Success: Strategies to Improve HHCAHPS from SOC to D/C

Arnie Cisneros

HHCAHPS ratings on patient satisfaction scores have grown in terms of importance since their introduction earlier this decade. As Medicare program focus turns from volume to value, Patient satisfaction is a prime indicator of value-based care, and HH Providers preparing for the care path of the future should internalize and address the need for elite level satisfaction scores. Learn how to drive results for these outcomes at every point of the episode, and how to assure you obtain the ratings you deserve. Join this webinar for the low fee of $20. Following payment, you will be directed to a Webinar Registration page. Please be sure to Register for the Webinar on this page!

Care Plan Creation for the Reduction of Re-Hospitalization and ED Use

In the Volume to Value healthcare landscape we currently work, significant focus is placed on the episodic version of the acute care patient program. Post-Discharge return visits to the Emergency Room (within 30 days after DC) identify patients whose problems were not resolved in the acute hospital admission. In addition, the Home Health Readmission percentage rate hovered in the mid 20’s until recent efforts have improved results. Homecare Providers who have traditionally viewed patients (and their respective programs) through 60-day episodes struggle when addressing 30-day ER/Readmit concerns. HHSM’s Melissa Couty demonstrates how to use Care Plan Creation to create improved outcomes in terms of ER visits and Readmissions in this Healthware webinar.

HHCAP scores have connected Home Health care delivery to Patient Satisfaction results as a means of demonstrating the value of in-home services. These scores are affected by a number of factors, but HH clients and family member satisfaction serves as a valid guide to measure value and service quality. A primary factor in satisfaction scores are the content of the HH program that relate directly to Star Rating measurements; timely Start of Care, maintenance of visit schedules, education and program delivery that addresses patient clinical needs, etc. This progressive presentation reviews how many agencies adopt a HH Utilization Control model to resolve these concerns that affect Patient Satisfaction outcomes.
