Disease Management Using Evidence Best Practices to Improve Patient Outcomes

Home Health clinicians need to be aware that they not only impact the Medicare Home Health Outcomes but also the Physician Quality Reporting and Hospital Outcomes. Outcome Measures as Heart Failure are being measure across Hospitals Quality Initiatives/ Physicians Quality Reporting System / Home Health Compare. Educating home health clinicians can be an investment that pays dividends in the form of referrals, staff retention and increasing agency revenue.

Many hospitals are reaching out to home health agencies to educate them on their Heart Failure Disease Management Program and other initiatives that the hospital may not be reaching the benchmark. This is a great opportunity to become a member of the patient's health care team to prevent re-hospitalization. For more information on the Post-Acute Care Program and the physician quality reporting program go to www.cms.gov.

Home Health Quality Improvement (HHQI) provides free educational materials for home care organizations to educate their patients and clinicians using Evidence Based Practices.".
