The RaH programme focuses on delivering skilled nursing and sub-acute rehabilitation services in the client’s home for diagnosis and treatment such as limb injuries, including fractures that require recovery, and debilitation resulting from infection or chronic conditions that require physiotherapy (PT) and/or occupational therapy (OT). Subacute rehab at home is a term used to describe this type of treatment. The good news is that new technological developments are assisting therapists in giving care to an ever-increasing patient pool. Biosensors, for example, can assist hospitals in measuring, tracking, and providing feedback on rehabilitation programs. Furthermore, many of these innovations can assist patients through “telehealth” video conversations, opening up an entirely new arena for hospitals and innovators to explore.

Funding through CMS and many commercial payers has made establishing and providing Hospital-at-Home care delivery a strategic focus for health organizations. Yet many struggle to successfully operationalize this new level of care and prepare their teams for care delivery innovation.
Adding Hospital-at-Home is even more pressing with continued COVID-19 surges, at-risk population growth at many health organizations, an aging population, and patient preference to age in place and receive care in the home and community.

An Innovative In-Home Rehabilitation Intervention for Persons with Chronic TBI and Their Families: A presentation and discussion with Dr. Helene Moriarty and Dr. Laraine Winter
Individuals with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) often experience ongoing symptoms and limitations for years after their injuries. The investigators have designed and tested a model of TBI rehabilitation that is delivered in the home and includes family members. They will describe their ongoing NIH-funded research testing these approaches for veterans and civilians with TBI and their families.
A presentation and discussion with:
Helene Moriarty: Professor at Villanova University, M. Louise Fitzpatrick College of Nursing, and Nurse Scientist at the Corporal Michael Crescenz Veteran Affairs Medical Center in Philadelphia
Laraine Winter: Senior Research Associate at Villanova University, M. Louise Fitzpatrick College of Nursing, and a Research Psychologist at the Corporal Michael Crescenz Veteran Affairs Medical Center
With the onset of the Patient-Driven Groupings Model (PDGM) during the pandemic era, many home health providers have failed to address the operational changes required to manage rehab under the new value-based model. As a result of the PDGM removing rehab visits from the payment calculation, many agencies have struggled with changes required to manage rehab content and outcomes. Recent work with multiple home health providers since the onset of the PDGM has revealed the connection between PDGM-compliant rehab programs, 5-Star Ratings, and optimal reimbursement.
During this webinar series, attendees will learn how Medicare positioned rehab management at the center of the PDGM despite removing per/visit therapy payments. Discover how to utilize the FIL (Functional Impairment Level) successfully to deliver value-based rehab programs based on the content modifications required for PDGM outcome success. In that manner, providers can develop the OASIS accuracy necessary for optimal reimbursement, while simultaneously establishing the care pathways required for 5-Star Ratings, single-digit readmissions, and optimal fiscal margins. This exciting series breaks down the Medicare approach to the PDGM’s development to assure an understanding of rehab changes and how to achieve compliance with your therapy staff and programs. Beginning with a 10,000-foot view of the hidden value opportunities in the PDGM’s rehab regulations, home health administrators, managers and supervisors will gain insight into how to rewire therapy for new levels of success.
In subsequent presentations, the development of PDGM-compliant rehab plans of care (POCs) and visit content can assure a value-based therapy episode. Finally, required rehab content necessary for skill, and denials occurring under the PDGM will round out where we are today in terms of qualified therapy expectations. The series concludes with a summary of the PDGM’s rehab POC development and in-episode delivery from admission to discharge, with a nod to future IMPACT Act reforms that will modify rehab even more.
Home healthcare is a Medicare benefit that can send a team of care professionals to your home. This team may include a nurse, therapist, aide, or other care professional. These professionals work with …
