ACO Webinar Series Part 2 Home Health Under the ACO Model
Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) are the care delivery model of the future, and healthcare reform has proposed this method of rewiring care for the baby boomer population. Developed and based on many of the issues currently at the heart of our healthcare delivery system, the ACOs address fee for service concerns, silos in healthcare, cost over-runs, and universal coverage concerns. By focusing on efficiencies and savings, the ACO inverts how we create and deliver care today and will alter how homecare treats patients in the near future.
The Care Transition aspect of the ACO includes Post-Acute Bundling, and this program will reinvent hospital discharges for all Medicare patients. The use of Post-Acute services, including Inpatient Rehab Facility, Skilled Nursing Facility, and Home Health care, will be altered significantly. Homecare agencies should start to prepare today for the changes ahead, and these webinars will outline all the information you need to know to get started.
