Grapevine, TX, 2018 Home Health Care and Hospice Conference and Expo – As the fee-for-service (FFS) reimbursement model is slowly being replaced by the concept of value-based care, home care providers are facing increasing pressure to reduce overutilization. From its inception, A Caring Heart Home Health, a Colorado-based pediatric and adult home care agency, has fully embraced this shift by adopting the PointClickCare Home Health Care solution.
“As the transition toward value-based care continues, successful agencies will be those that not only have visibility into their current performance, but the data and insights to continually modify and develop new strategies for improvement,” says Ann Acchione, chief executive officer and administrator, A Caring Heart Home Health. “As an independent home care agency, it’s crucial that we leverage innovative solutions to reduce costs, and more importantly, achieve desirable outcomes for our clients.”
By leveraging PointClickCare from its inception, A Caring Heart has been able to reduce and optimize the amount of time spent on document and information processing. As a result, the agency has been able to simultaneously achieve significant cost savings per patient, increase the amount of time spent with each patient, and grow its census by more than 25 percent without increasing staff.
PointClickCare’s platform is designed to meet the needs of an increasingly complex clinical and regulatory home health care market; this includes providing greater insight into performance and streamlining workflows. These benefits empower agencies to make informed decisions and improve care planning, enabling them to provide the best client experience to drive loyalty with clients, families and referral partners, all while optimizing their bottom line.
“As the industry shifts toward a payment model that emphasizes care outcomes, PointClickCare is committed to positioning home care agencies, such as A Caring Heart Home Health, to fully embrace and prepare for this change,” said Mark Tomzak, executive vice president and general manager for the Home Health Care market, PointClickCare. “A Caring Heart Home Health’s success is a testament to its ability to leverage actionable insights, as well as its commitment to innovation, patient-centered care, and most importantly, the community it serves.”
