  • Medicare Quality Reporting Program Updates & Changes on the Horizon

    Medicare-certified home health agencies are required to take part in the Home Health Quality Reporting Program (HH QRP) by collecting and reporting both the Outcomes and Assessment Information Set (OASIS) patient quality of care results, as well as the Home Health Care Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers (HHCAHPS) patient survey results. With the implementation of OASIS-E on January 1, 2023, the Transfer of Health Information to the Patient Post-Acute Care (PAC) measure will be collected. The session will discuss this new quality measure and provide an overview of current measures. It will include information on when and how measures will be collected and reported, as well as which measures are slated for retirement. Attend this session to learn the latest HH QRP information and best practice strategies that will help you position your agency for success.

  • Compassion Fatigue & Burnout: New Perspectives for Health Care Providers, Teams, and Organizations

    Compassion fatigue and burnout are leading causes of health care workers leaving their jobs and professions. The "solution" has been vaguely framed as an individual responsibility, as opposed to an organizational or systemic issue. As health care organizations face unprecedented staffing shortages and recruitment and retention problems, it is time to consider a different approach to creating sustainable teams. Rather than pressing individuals who are already stressed to "fix" themselves, workplace wellness requires "self-care" at the individual, team, and organizational levels. Compassion fatigue and burnout affect the entire organization, as well as the patients. The goal of this presentation is to give clinicians and non-clinicians alike a new perspective on how to care for themselves, each other and take responsibility for creating a welcoming and healthy workplace.
