What’s new in HHVBP in 2024?

While the core objectives remain the same, 2024 brings some crucial updates and applications:

Payment Adjustments

The first payment adjustments based on 2023 and 2024 performance will occur in 2025. This means the time to focus on quality and accurate documentation is now!

OASIS-E Implementation

The transition to OASIS-E further emphasized the importance of precise and comprehensive patient assessments.

Updated Measures

Some quality measures revised or replaced, focus on areas like functional decline prevention, potentially avoidable hospitalizations, and patient experience.

Goals of the VBP payment structure

One key aspect of VBP in home healthcare is the OASIS-E (Outcome and Assessment Information Set). This standardized assessment tool captures detailed data about patients’ functional status, medical conditions, and care needs.

Improve The Overall Quality Of Care

By tying financial incentives to outcomes, VBP encourages providers to prioritize interventions that truly make a difference for patients.

Reduce Healthcare Costs

By focusing on preventing avoidable complications and readmissions, VBP can potentially lead to decreased overall healthcare spending.

Increase Transparency And Accountability

VBP makes performance data more accessible, allowing patients and policymakers to compare providers and hold them accountable for delivering quality care.

Navigating the complexities of OASIS-E can be challenging. This is where HealthRev Partners steps in as your trusted partner.

What is OASIS-E?

Since its inception in 1999, home health’s Outcome and Assessment Information Set (OASIS) has undergone several revisions targeted at enhancing validity and reducing collection time. Many of these changes have been directly related to the Impact Act of 2014 (Improving Medicare Post-Acute Care Transformation Act), which implemented common standards and definitions when transitioning a patient from one care setting to another across the various post-acute care settings, and ultimately improve patient care.

OASIS accuracy is, and will continue to be, vital to home health operations going forward with OASIS-E. Home health agency’s quality measures, data collection, and reimbursement are all linked to the OASIS standardized instrument.

How can HealthRev help you unlock the full potential of HHVBP?

OASIS-E consisted of the most extensive revisions of the OASIS data set ever. To be exact, there were 159 OASIS-E data elements changed with the new assessment forms. This included 39 new assessment items added to the OASIS-E charting.
