Speaker: Chris Attaya, MBA, FHFMA, VP of Business Intelligence at SHP
Home Health offers hospitals one of the best strategies to reduce 30‐day readmissions, but are we living up to the challenge? With the negative reimbursement impacts to hospitals and a likely HHA pay‐for‐performance measure, agencies need to continually look at their data to understand the relationships of patient characteristics and the utilization of services provided to improve their scores. Using data from the SHP (Strategic Healthcare Programs) database, we will analyze the different characteristics and agency profiles behind hospital readmissions. The data provided during this session will help agencies focus and refine efforts that lead to better performance. This session will:
- Identify how HHA’s should use the CMS hospital readmission penalty criteria to position their value proposition
- Identify the characteristics of patients that are readmitted to the hospital
- Analyze readmission rates between different agency types
- List three definite red flags that put patients at high risk of readmitting within 30 days of discharge from the hospital
