The Essential Guide to Home Health Value-Based Purchasing

Home Health Value-Based Purchasing is in full swing in nine pilot states, but even if your agency is not part of the pilot, there is no time to wait. Use the pilot as an opportunity to learn and prepare because it is extremely likely that HHVBP will become a permanent part of CMS’s HHA reimbursement strategy.

“The Essential Guide to the Home Health Value-Based Purchasing Progam” will provide you with everything you need to know, as well as what steps to take to make sure you succeed under the program’s rules.

By partnering with Advanced TeleHealth Solutions, hospitals will see a decrease in readmissions and an increase in patient satisfaction, improving a hospital’s reputation and attracting a larger patient population while simultaneously reducing costs by:

  • Extending care services from hospital to home, and keeping the patient loyal to the hospital
  • Reducing readmissions for severe disease categories that can be monitored and stabilized at home
  • Improving timely and accurate patient information
  • Increasing patient education, accountability and self-care
  • Reducing ER visits through effective monitoring
  • Assistance in managing diseases such as COPD, hypertension, CHF, diabetes and more

Hospitals across the country are trying to find solutions to keep care affordable and increase patient satisfaction—we can help. According to the CDC and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, “The heavy inpatient focus of hospitals is not cost-effective for the management of chronic disease; from a hospital perspective, chronic disease is too often managed as a series of admissions for acute exacerbations. Data for diseases such as asthma and congestive heart failure clearly indicate that cost savings and quality improvements come from what happens over the long term outside of hospitals to prevent acute episodes from occurring.”

Patient follow-up through a call program showed a promising reduction in patient rehospitializations and emergency room admissions. This conclusion is from a study initiated by Cox Health Systems using Advanced TeleHealth Solutions. Download the white paper now.

The numbers from Advanced TeleHealth Solutions shows significant reductions in emergency room visits and re-hospitalizations, particularly for high-dollar patients.
Dr. Roy W. Holand
I don’t go to the hospital now because I’m able to check my vitals daily and I’m not afraid. I could barely function before, and now I feel safe. The staff is never in a hurry, never too busy for me. It’s a comfort to know that they are watching out for me. It’s like having a whole bunch of friends around all the time.

Telemonitoring has been very helpful. In the past, anytime a patient had a problem with blood pressure or a medicine had to be changed, it was very difficult to monitor, and many times we had to bring the patient back to the clinic or we had a nurse go check their blood pressure. Since telemonitoring, it’s really been very convenient, especially for the patients.
Dr. Ovais Zubair
By carefully monitoring the patient several times a day, Advanced TeleHealth Solutions could tell when it was time to make a home visit and administer care. As a result, the patient was much more comfortable and the home visits saved a trip to the hospital. With the budget crisis in the state of Missouri involving Medicaid state management, telemonitoring is such an inexpensive alternative to multiple trips to the emergency room or doctor’s office.
