Do More with Less: Innovative Strategies to Adapt to a Changing PAC Landscape


Payment reforms and sweeping new Medicare regulations are transforming the post-acute care (PAC) health care industry. Are you feeling the pressure? It’s time to get clear on how the trend toward a unified post-acute health care market will impact on your agency.

Get prepared by joining healthcare compliance expert J’non Griffin for an in-depth discussion on how you can position yourself as a provider of choice. You’ll learn about the legislation behind key changes, what new payment methodologies and reporting requirements you might have to implement, and how you can restructure certain aspects of your operations to gain a competitive edge.

Griffin will provide real-world examples of cost-effective solutions that other agencies are using to improve the services they offer—while also maintaining compliance and creating high-quality care environments for patients.

After attending this session, you will have a strong grasp of the social and physical determinants that should guide your approach to designing a patient-centered system of care. You’ll also be aware of innovative staffing concepts that will allow your agency to do more with less. Plus, you’ll understand how to use the new psychosocial assessments required by the latest Conditions of Participation (COPs), how to fully comply with the IMPACT Act, how to handle high-risk admissions, and how to reduce readmission risks. Patient-centered care is reshaping home health—don’t get left behind!
