Home health agencies are measured on a variety of process and outcome performance measures. CMS reports this performance to the Home Health Compare website where patients can choose their preferred agency based on these quality and performance measures. Agencies are required to report multiple measures and CMS summarizes nine of these measures into single star rating measures. The MHCA Clinical Quality team has come together to offer individualized education on each of these nine areas to help enhance the star scores across the state. Learn how to improve quality and performance while enhancing the patient experience during this informative and timely webinar.
