The transition to value-based care, and initiatives such as the Patient-Driven Groupings Model (PDGM), have dramatically changed home health reimbursement. To thrive in this new reality, home health organizations need to provide value-driven, patient-centered care without sacrificing quality.
How well are you positioned to shift from producing volume to creating value?
The shift to value-based care is evident across the healthcare landscape, with the effects of this transition dramatically impacting the Home Health industry. Medicare’s Patient-Driven Groupings Model (PDGM), perhaps the most significant change to Medicare’s payment methodology for home health services in the last 20 years, is the latest example of this transition and it has already had a huge impact on reimbursement models for home health agencies.
A consolidation of providers is likely in this new reality. Those who survive will evaluate and streamline every facet of their operations, and institute effective organizational change management to shift from producing volume to creating value.
ARMG has been working with home health organizations since 1998. During that time, we’ve helped home health organizations navigate other changes to reimbursement models, such as the Prospective Payment System (PPS) which was implemented nearly 20 years ago. We’re now working with providers to examine every corner of their operations, enabling our partners to better position themselves to deliver efficient, profitable, high-quality care, while effectively managing visits per episode and maintaining patient satisfaction.
Our goal at ARMG is not merely to help you survive in this new reality of value-based care, but to thrive.
