About the Conference

America is experiencing a dramatic shift in demographics, and in 2019, people older than 65 years will outnumber those younger than five. As Americans age and live longer, increasing numbers of them will live with multiple chronic conditions, such as diabetes or dementia, and functional impairments, such as difficulty with the basics of life like mobility and managing one’s household. One of the greatest health care challenges facing our country is ensuring that older Americans with serious chronic illness and other maladies of aging can remain as independent as possible.

This program will address how meeting this challenge will require envisioning the potential value of home-based and hospice health care, creating pathways for care delivery to optimize its value, and integrating it fully into the U.S. health care system.

Minimizing Hospital Utilization in a Program for All Inclusive Care of the Elderly 

PACE is a capitated Medicare-Medicaid sponsored program for participants who meet state criteria for nursing home placement to allow them to live in the community as long as possible. Chattanooga’s PACE began in 1997 when the Balanced Budget Act permanently established the program.

Attributes of a Healthy Hospital Joint Venture

As hospitals look to improve and expand their health care offerings, many are seeking out and creating joint venture (JV) partnerships with providers that have expertise in their area of interest. These new relationships and care delivery models can be mutually beneficial, but only if both partners share the same mission, strategic objectives, defined success measures, and governance structure. Aligning individual and integrated contributions is key to meeting the long-term financial and clinical goals of the JV.  This presentation will focus on the role home health care partnerships play in post-acute care management of high-risk populations, and the elements of building a successful JV.

Stay Interviews: The Crucial Conversation for Retention

Want to improve employee retention? Stay Interviews are a valuable tool to add to your manager’s tool kit. In a Stay Interview you ask current employees why they continue to work for your organization. The results give you insight into what you can do to retain your valued employees – now. You also learn what your organization or department is doing well, and identify opportunities to retain staff in the future. We will look at a real-life example of how Stay Interviews improved retention for a Jacksonville, Florida home health agency.

Discover Micro-Learning – It May Be the Perfect Method for Health Care Training

Having staff who are properly trained is often the difference between the outstanding healthcare providers and the rest of the pack. Unfortunately, high turnover, caregiver shortages and the complexity of material to be learned makes this extremely difficult. With the advances in technology along with a better understanding of how humans learn, Micro-Learning is proving to be an ideal method to get staff the training they need while also addressing many of the challenges the industry typically faces. This session will show how you can apply this method of training to your company and have a workforce with lower turnover, fewer injuries and a better understanding of your corporate mission.

How to Build a Cost-Effective Home-Based Palliative Care Program

Realizing that seriously ill patients often do better when they can stay in their own homes and receive coordinated and personalized treatment, a growing number of hospitals, hospices, home health agencies and group practices now offer home-based palliative care as a separate business line for patients in their communities. Home-based palliative care programs typically integrate multidisciplinary care teams that include physicians and nurses, social workers and chaplains who visit patients in their homes and offer tailored treatment plans focused on managing symptoms and improving quality of life. This session will address how to build a cost-effective home-based palliative care program, and its benefits to patients, their caregivers and the health care system.

Innovations Ushering in the Future of In-Home Care

This session will explore current options for in-home care in the wake of recent pharmaceutical and technology innovations that have opened the door to treatment options for populations that never before had the option to be safely cared for at home. The presenters will offer an overview of emerging patient-centered innovations including personalized health solutions, consumer-driven on-demand care vehicles, algorithmic care and in-home clinical care models that are shaping the future of clinical care in the home. Additionally, using case examples from pilot programs involving care in the home, participants will discuss criteria for differentiating patients whose needs may be best met in a hospital setting from those whose needs may be better met at home by visiting physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, and other clinical staff.  Finally the presenters will offer an overview of emerging patient-centered innovations including personalized health solutions, consumer-driven on-demand care vehicles, algorithmic care and in-home clinical care models that are shaping the future of clinical care in the home.

How to Design Innovative Clinical Programs for Special High-Risk Populations

High-risk patient populations—including those with heart failure, risk of falls, or balance disorders or dizziness—require special home health interventions. What should agencies consider when developing innovative, preventative health programs designed for high-risk populations? How can they ensure that these clinical programs meet the needs of these populations and result in reduced rehospitalizations, improved outcomes, and reduced costs?
