Home-Care Patients Who are Aging Solo: Are you Prepared?
Home health care professionals often count on interacting and making care decisions with the patient’s family member. This often includes a caring son or daughter, or a spouse. But according to demographic research and the aging professionals, that is not necessarily going to be the home-care environment situation going forward.
One-in-three Baby Boomers falls under the category of separated, divorced, widowed, or never married. This means that millions of people are aging solo in their own homes, without the presence of family caregivers. This home-care environment will have a significant impact on the home-health care industry. When there are no family members to supply you with answers, when there are no family members to offer you direction and support, you will soon find out that it is no longer business as usual. Joy Loverde has a reputation for being a path carver and visionary with a focus on the mature-market population. Joy serves as a marketing and media consultant to senior housing, HR professionals, attorneys, financial planners, clergy, and other members of the fast-growing eldercare industry. The idea is to get HealthWare clients as much help as possible as they tackle the challenges of the aging-solo client. Joy is the author of Who Will Take Care Of Me When I’m Old? and The Complete Eldercare Planner.

Succeeding with Value-Based Health Care for Hospice and Home Health Providers
We continue our 2018 webinar series as Meghan Nechrebecki, Founder and CEO of Health Care Transformation, joins HealthWare to explore value-based care for Home Health and Hospice Agencies.
Healthcare reimbursements are steadily moving away from fee-for-service towards fee-for-value and pay for performance contracts. Both Medicare and private insurance companies across the U.S. are holding healthcare providers more accountable for the cost and outcomes of the patients they serve. Many Home Health and Hospice Agencies are seeing a reimbursement reduction by as much as 25% from these insurers.

Required Home Health Documentation for Nursing and Rehab: The Basis of Volume to Value shift
Join us as we explore the CMS documentation requirements for Value Outcomes.
Individual treatment modalities must be connected to the clinical or functional declines being addressed, with goals of improvement resulting from the care program. Routine visit documentation should identify how the program that specifically addresses each of the areas from the evaluation
progresses on a per visit basis in a “documentation for coverage” manner.
These areas are paramount for establishment of a skilled Home Health program for the value era.
Coverage criteria for clinical services must be re-stated, with particular emphasis
on evaluations and subsequent documentation. All evaluations and subsequent care
plans must outline a care and treatment program that rises to professional standards and have measurable goals that relate directly to the illness or injury at hand. These clinical programs must be based on objective tests and measures, commonly recognized as best practices in the respective professional practice.
