Value-Based Purchasing: Preparing for Success…Now and in the Future
May 26, 2016
3:00 – 4:30 pm ET
Presenter: Mary St. Pierre, RN, HEALTHCAREfirst Consultant and Former Vice President of NAHC Regulatory Affairs

How does your home health agency’s quality of care measure up? With the move toward a value-based purchasing (VBP) model that rewards value, patient outcomes, and satisfaction rather than volume, HHAs must be prepared as the industry moves to value-driven care.

Please join us for a discussion of the basics of the current Home Health VBP pilot project and what home health agencies can do to prepare for the future of value-based care. All home health agencies, regardless of their participation in the VBP pilot program, will want to join this webinar to discover how to prepare for the future of value-based purchasing.
