CMS reforms mandated by the Affordable Care Act will challenge many of the care production and delivery practices Home Health Providers currently employ. On January 1st of this year, Value-Based Purchasing (VBP) programs began, and these quality-based reforms will require agencies to re-wire how they treat patients, and also control how they propel their care program to achieve the desired outcomes. Success under VBP models will require care managed programs that change as patient performance and acuity change on an in-episode basis, and this will tax the standard homecare protocols.
