Value-Based Purchasing: What's New for 2019?

  • Webinar


Registration is closed

9 States currently are affected by the CMS Value Based Purchasing demonstration project. This 5 year demonstration model will begin its 4th year in January 2019. While there was thought that VBP would possibly be rolled out nationwide, it now appears that a Post Acute Care VBP program would be the nationwide program. This program has undergone several changes since its inception and more are expected. This webinar will allow home health staff members to obtain information in order to evaluate where their agency would stand if Value Based Purchasing were happening in their state today and how to determine where you stand if you are in a VBP state today. VBP results from the first 2 years of the pilot will be reviewed and how VBP has affected the nation's home health compare/star rating scores. Attend to learn what you need to do now in order to ensure you are one of excellent performing agencies and to absorb the impact of VBP for the future. Directors, clinicians and quality review staff will not want to miss this session.
