August 17, 2016 09:12 AM
The educational programming at the National Association for Home Care & Hospice’s (NAHC) 2016 Annual Meeting will provide many opportunities to improve and acquire management and leadership skills and strategies.
In Focus on the Future: What Tomorrow’s Home Health and Hospice Leaders Should Know Today , gear up for what’s ahead in home care and hospice finances and operations. This session is targeted at developing professionals in these parts of the field. And it’s especially useful for those who are at an early stage in their careers or new to the home care and hospice industry. Get an overview of the dynamic changes that have occurred in home care and hospice during recent years. Knowing where the industry has been is critical to understanding where it’s going under recent payment and service models. Learn about current industry hot buttons, key performance indicators, and the growing importance of communication between departments. We’ll communicate all that and more so you can lead your agency to success.
Agencies can succeed by engaging staff at all levels. The rapidly changing payer system requires home care and hospice leaders to make positive changes. In response to payment changes, they should encourage the development of environments that maximize outcomes and minimize expense. Find out the steps you, too, can take to achieve quality outcomes, patient and employee satisfaction, operational excellence, and a boost in your bottom line. The key is engaging your staff and adapting your processes to future challenges like value-based purchasing and shared risk. Learn from the example of Penn Care at Home, a mid-sized agency that made plans based on what works, what fails, and what should be improved. By giving staff more say in their work, Penn Care reduced turnover rates and achieved five stars in patient satisfaction.
Value-based leadership skills can bridge the execution gap. Many agencies recognize an “execution gap” – the rift between the performance outcomes goals and the existing performance behaviors. It’s this rift that can be costly in time, money, and other resources. Learn to identify key performance indicators that lead to great results in the context of VBP, discover what can be done to achieve the key performance indicators, and create a management action plan.
The Clinical Manager v2.0: A Strategy and Clinic for Better Clinical Operations will help you develop the skill set that leads to better value and outcomes depends on a subset of characteristics. In a period of industry transformation, it is easy to overlook the role of the clinical manager (CM) and to perhaps minimize the critical need for a structured CM development program. This program will address the value of setting a formal clinical manager development program and its practical operation. Join us for this interactive and fun session.
