The recent announcement by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to delay the national expansion of the Medicare Value Based Purchasing (VBP) model until 2023 offers home health agencies a year of “pre-implementation” preparation opportunities to align quality with finance management. This session will provide the latest information on the construct of the VBP model and implementation timelines and will provide a practical approach for incorporating the VBP performance measures into quality and financial management strategies. This session will also examine scenarios to measure the impact of specific performance improvements on resulting financial outcomes and will explore strategies for achieving optimal quality performance.
