    Insights Into the Financial & Risk Management Aspects of the CMS CJR Payment Initiative


    Webinar – Tuesday, May 10, 2016
    2:00 to 3:30 p.m. CST

    CMS is rolling out the Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement Model in April, 2016 which will hold hospitals accountable for the quality of care they deliver to Medicare fee-for-service beneficiaries for hip and knee replacements from surgery through recovery. Through this retrospective bundled payment model, hospitals in 67 geographic areas will receive additional payments if quality and spending performance are strong or, if not, potentially have to repay Medicare for a portion of the spending for care surrounding a lower extremity joint replacement (LEJR) procedure. Areas in Kansas will fall under this model. The model’s goal is to give hospitals a financial incentive to work with physicians, home health agencies, skilled nursing facilities, hospices, home care agencies and other providers to make sure beneficiaries get the coordinated care they need. Within this model, there can be risk but also opportunity. This webinar will assist attendees in gaining insights into the financial and risk management aspects of this bundled payment initiative.

    Improving HH CAHPS Scores & Patient Experiences!


    Webinar – Wednesday, May 11, 2016

    2:00 to 3:30 p.m. CST

    We all know that the "Home Health Care CAHPS Survey" or "HHCAHPS" is designed to measure the experiences of people receiving home health care from Medicare-certified home health agencies. Survey responses impact your STAR ratings, the perception of your agency by consumers and referral sources – and, if you are in Value Based Purchasing State, the results will impact your Medicare reimbursement as part of your Total Performance Scores. A recent article highlighted the discrepancies between the CMS data used in the STAR ratings and the data from the patient experiences with their home health care! It’s time to understand what your agency needs to do to obtain the very best CAHPS scores possible and build that solid reputation of quality and care!
