The survey, Home Health Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HHCAHPS), and reporting program will be made available to home health agencies in the fourth quarter of 2010, and data from the program will be publicly reported beginning in 2011. But, unlike most other government programs, agencies must use a private vendor to administer the surveys and report their data.
The costs of programs offered by the vendors vary, but the financial implications can be significant… particularly for small agencies.
You need to understand the program, what the obligations and costs will be, and demands the program will make on your staff and agency.
Join Rebecca Friedman Zuber for this 60-minute audio session for information on the program; agency processes required to participate; tips on vendor selection; the potential advantages and disadvantages of participation; and the time frame for making decisions.
Highlights of this session include:
