Section: Quality and Educational Programming

Kick off VNAA’s Annual Meeting, Leading Innovation, at the Hyatt Regency Miami with an early start on need-to-know information, Wednesday, April 6, 2016 12:00 – 3:45. 
You know that value-based purchasing (VBP) is expected to improve coordination and health outcomes in home health, and that the CMS demo is underway.  But do you have the information you need to transform your organization into a high performing agency under VBP?  The CMS demo is in 7 states now, but everyone expects it to roll out across the country.   If you’re in a demo state, you need to know the nuts and bolts of VBP from these industry experts.  And if you’re not starting VBP now, you should know what you need to do to get ready.
In this special session you’ll get an overview of HHVBP, discuss the opportunities and risks for HHAs, identify the best practices to demonstrate your value and hear from colleagues in the trenches.  You’ll also have a hands-on opportunity to work on a readiness assessment and learn about resources such as the VNAA Healthcare Transformation e-Tool Kit. 
After the workshop participants will be able to:
  • Identify key components of the CMS Home Health Value-Based Purchasing demonstration program
  • Understand how HHVPB fits into broader CMS goals to transform payment and delivery models
  • Identify performance measures associated with the VBP program and priorities for improving measures in order to maximize payment
  • Implement a needs assessment to identify areas of operational expertise needed to ensure success in managing VBP requirements
  • Learn from other home health agency leaders who are going through the transformation to VBP and identify resources to support your organization’s transformation
Our confirmed expert panelists include:
  • Chris Attaya Vice President of, Business Intelligence, SHP 
  • Mike Barrett, Senior Vice President, Southeast Region, Universal American, and Special Advisor, National Association of ACOs 
  • Lena O’Rourke – VNAA’s Acting Vice President of Policy and Innovation
