“Healthcare at home has gained tremendous momentum in the last year, but we must keep moving forward. This includes positioning ourselves to succeed under the emerging value-based models with best practice research. By determining where and what resources should be used to achieve the highest clinical, operational and financial outcomes, we strengthen ourselves as an industry and also our ability to become a formidable partner within the healthcare continuum.”
– Brent Korte, Chief Home Care Officer, EvergreenHealth Home Care

- Is there a correlation between admission nurse models and varying training/QA programs that results in improved OASIS accuracy and quality outcomes?
- What are the key episode management and visit cost strategies that result in maximized reimbursement while maintaining high quality of care
- What bereavement services result in better hospice CAHPS scores and do scores differ by patient setting?
- And much much more
Participating agencies will receive exclusive access to an interactive portal with detailed benchmarks and insights that can be segmented by size, outcomes, and more.
A report with global observations will be available to the entire industry at no cost while participating agencies will receive exclusive access to an interactive portal with detailed benchmarks and insights that can be segmented by size, outcomes, and more. Participants will have 4-weeks to complete the estimated 2-hour study survey and may start and stop it anytime throughout the process. All questions are multiple choice and do not require extensive research to answer. The survey process is expected to begin in early October.
