Watch the free webinar Value-Based Purchasing & ACOs: The Path of the Future with Arnie Cisneros and Astrid Roeder, Home Health Strategic Management.


As healthcare reforms re-define how we deliver care to patients in the home, much of the focus is centered on the “Volume to Value” shift for Home Health services. Accordingly, many of the homecare-specific reforms address this in a direct manner; Star Ratings, HHCAPS, VBP, and Pre-Claim Review come to mind. Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) also are compelled to re-wire care delivery, particularly for the Post-Acute phase of treatment, where Home Health is a dominant factor. Those Home Health providers that practice in VBP-demo states are working towards this already in response to VBP requirements that affect their payment, and resultantly, their programming.

After this webinar, you’ll walk away with information about:

  • How Home Health providers employ Value-Based Purchasing strategies to redefine their care processes
  • How those results allow them to market their services to ACOs
  • The hows and whys of reworking the Home Health model, entirely compliant with CMS regulations, to achieve improved value status
