Home Care Executive Briefing - November 10, 2016
EDU1631
Event Description

 
It is even more important than ever to come to the one day the Home Care Executive Briefings program! Not only does this event provide challenging and non-complaint home care standards, it will also discuss significant changes coming in 2017 for accredited home care organizations, including Project REFRESH.  Project REFRESH is a process improvement initiative at The Joint Commission, and one of its first changes that affects The Joint Commission’s home care accredited organizations is a brand new scoring methodology, the SAFER Matrix, which focuses on criticality and scope of risks observed on survey. Also, you will hear a "real world" approach to demonstrating the value of home health in today's healthcare environment of Value-Based Payment (VBP), Shared Savings and Bundled Arrangements.  Learn directly from Joint Commission leaders because you can count on the accuracy and authority of the information. Other program subjects include challenging standards, community-based palliative care certification, and more! It happens once a year, so please join us!
