CMS releases new HHVBP tools

CMS has provided a new video and guidance to get agencies ready for the national rollout of the Home Health Value-Based Purchasing model in 2023.

The new tools include:

  • The on-demand video Quality Measures Used in the Expanded HHVBP Model, providing measure-specific information on each of the quality measures included in the expanded Model.
  • A 13-page document, How to use Existing QAPI Processes to Support Improvement in Expanded HHVBP Model, providing a practical and visual guide to the quality improvement cycle as it relates to the expanded HHVBP Model and overall quality improvement efforts. This resource also highlights data and reports currently available to HHAs in iQIES and on the Care Compare website.

Both resources are designed to support HHAs as they prepare for the first performance year, calendar year 2023, of the expanded HHVBP Model. These resources, and others, are now available on the Expanded HHVBP Model webpage.
