Advanced Applications of HBPC™ Workshop

Designed for experienced home-based primary care (HBPC) providers and practice staff, this two-day workshop will prepare and equip learners to succeed in value-based payment arrangements. This activity is also ideal for those who have completed the Essential Elements of Home-Based Primary Care™ workshop and are ready to continue their learning. Sessions present actionable strategies with a value-based lens in the following areas: required staffing, infrastructure, and data; patient identification; cost-effective management of medications and conditions commonly found in HBPC patients (e.g., dementia, CHF); quality measurement and reducing gaps in care; risk adjustment models, including Hierarchical Condition Category (HCC) coding; and demonstrating the value of HBPC when negotiating with payers. Also available is hands-on training in HBPC procedures including, wound care, gastrostomy and tracheostomy tube changes, and joint injections.

Upon completion of this workshop, learners will be able to: 

  • Discuss value-based payment opportunities currently available to HBPC programs, including strategies for patient identification, quality measurement, contract negotiation, and establishing key partnerships. 
  • Apply recommended practices for staffing and productivity, efficiency, telehealth, risk stratification, and coordination with other providers. 
  • Provide high-quality, cost-effective patient care and successfully manage conditions of specific concerns in value-based payment arrangements, including dementia, congestive heart failure, and polypharmacy. 
  • Manage transitions of care for homebound patients within the domains of accountability, communication, assessing needs and goals, medication management, and safety. 
  • Perform common procedures typical in HBPC, including tracheostomy tube exchange, gastrostomy tube removal and replacement, wound care, and knee joint aspiration and injection, and Point-of-Care Ultrasound (POCUS).
