Since day one Assure has taken a proactive and innovated approach to its patient-centered care delivery models, directing their efforts on developing their staff, programs, processes, and technology arm to support the every changing healthcare market. It was a natural progression to align their best practice with CMS pioneering, initiative. In April of 2015 Assure Home Healthcare, Inc., was selected as a Single Awardee Model 3 for the Bundled Payment Care Improvement Initiative (BPCI), through the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI). Assure is elated and proud to state based on our care redesign submission in Q2 2014; CMS chose AHHC as 1 of 2 Home Healthcare Agency in the state of Illinois to participate in CMS Bundled Payment Care Improvement Initiative.
Assure went live on July 1st, 2015 with the first beneficiary within the BPCI pilot study. In this 3-year pilot study, the overall goal is to improve quality care coordination while reducing unnecessary Medicare spending. To navigate through the BPCI pilot study with CMS, we have engaged a nationally recognized healthcare analytics partner of DHG Healthcare to arm Assure with real-time reporting analysis with a consultative approach to reducing 30day readmission rates among high complexity patients. We utilize our proven technology and analytics partner coupled with our clinical best practices to partner with hospitals, physicians, and post-acute care providers to improve outcomes for all of the selected 48 DRG’s.
