Becoming a Preferred Provider: Home Health's Role in Hospital and Skilled Nursing Transitions


Join us at the Home Health Care News Summit on September 18 when leaders from Jefferson Health, BAYADA Home Health Care and Ocean Healthcare will share strategies for building preferred provider networks and outcome-based partnerships. 

As integration and communication become critical to the success of patient outcomes, coordination through the continuum of care has become more sophisticated.

Prepared Health CEO Ashish V. Shah will lead a panel with forward-thinking leaders including Rajesh Aggarwal, senior vice president, Jefferson Strategic Ventures & Innovation, Thomas Jefferson University and Jefferson Health; Joe Kiernan, chief strategy officer, Ocean Healthcare; and David Baiada, CEO, BAYADA Home Health Care. The panel will cover a range of topic including:

  • Improving hospital-to-home transitions and ROI
  • Coordinating throughout the continuum in today's regulatory landscape 
  • Organizing and managing preferred provider networks 
  • Securing value-based agreements that make sense for home health providers

The panel also will discuss the role that home-based providers play from a hospital and SNF perspective, common mistakes agencies make in trying to network with hospitals or health systems, and how to plan for new Medicare Advantage benefits focused on social determinants of health.

Please join us for a pre-Summit happy hour on September 17 at The Gage, 24 S. Michigan Ave., from 5-7 p.m. No RSVP required but we hope to see you there.
