This program has been developed to assist experienced home health managers to enhance the operational performance of their home health agency. Our introductory Home Care 101 course provides the basics of home care operations. Home Care 201 is the next level. Improving clinical performance and financial management in a Medicare skilled home health agency is the focus of Home Care 201. Essential to improving agency operations is identifying clinical issues that impact performance. This program will provide strategies to refine and improve billing performance as well as explain the important relationship between clinical and financial areas of the agency. This focus is important as the future viability of home care operations will be determined by the agency’s ability to remain current with changing regulations, the ongoing focus on patient outcomes, declining reimbursement, and closer scrutiny by auditors that can lead to denials. Attendees are strongly encouraged to bring to the program a written description of at least one problem that they need to resolve within their agency; the goal is to best serve the individual's purpose for attending the class.
