Positioning Home-Based Care Across the Continuum

These 20-minute keynote presentations provide attendees with maximum exposure to key insights from leaders across the continuum of care.

Creating Your Pathway to Performance in Home Health

In this highly interactive session participants will explore the key drivers of success in home health, as measured in both financial performance and quality metrics.  Through sophisticated financial modeling, participants will understand how these drivers impact the financial strength of an agency.  We will explore the differences in how value and financial success are defined among hospital-based agencies and stand-alone agencies.  By examining case studies of both stand-alone and hospital-based home health agencies, participants will better understand the financial drivers of their agency, how to define the value of their agency to their hospital partner or other referral sources, and the actions required to create their own “pathway to performance.”

Innovations in Workforce Development

The health care workforce is facing unprecedented shortages in nurses, aides, direct care workers, and physicians, as well as physical, respiratory and occupational therapists nationwide. Efforts to recruit and retain talent must include the entire organization. Building a positive work environment, efficient selection and hiring processes, effective orientation programs, and supportive on going professional development are key components of a successful health care workplace.
