Improving HH CAHPS Scores & Patient Experiences!
Webinar – Wednesday, May 11, 2016
2:00 to 3:30 p.m. CST
We all know that the "Home Health Care CAHPS Survey" or "HHCAHPS" is designed to measure the experiences of people receiving home health care from Medicare-certified home health agencies. Survey responses impact your STAR ratings, the perception of your agency by consumers and referral sources – and, if you are in Value Based Purchasing State, the results will impact your Medicare reimbursement as part of your Total Performance Scores. A recent article highlighted the discrepancies between the CMS data used in the STAR ratings and the data from the patient experiences with their home health care! It’s time to understand what your agency needs to do to obtain the very best CAHPS scores possible and build that solid reputation of quality and care!
