    "It's Always Too Early Until It's Too Late" | How to Have Meaningful Conversations About Advance Care Directives

    "It's Always Too Early Until It's Too Late" | How to Have Meaningful Conversations About Advance Care Directives

    Wow! What a powerful quote from Carla Sutter, Director, Advance Directives Registry for Contexture. Ms. Sutter holds her master’s degree in social work and has spent her 30-year career working with organizations who are dedicated to helping clients and families care for themselves and others whose needs are changing due to age or illness. Ms. Sutter is specialized in advance care planning conversations and advance directives.

    Ms. Sutter’s previous work as a hospice social worker, counseling patients and families at end-of-life, has been a guiding point for her work and a reminder of who is at the core of any program on advance care planning and end of life decision making in which she is involved. Additionally, the research and writing of her master’s thesis entitled “Developing ethnic competence in social work practice” has directed the way she approaches a community centered program.

    Ms. Sutter is the author of Where Do We Begin: A Guide to Elder Caregiving.

    In this episode of Home Health Revealed, Michael Greenlee and Hannah Vale sit down with Carla to discuss how to have those meaningful conversations about end of life directives. 

    What keeps people from having these important conversations? 

    How can home health and hospice professionals be prepared to talk about these plans? 

    How can you write your own end of life directive? 

    How will you know that your wishes will be honored? 

    Whether it's through a state organization, place of faith or other resource, Carla encourages us to create a plan for the end of life earlier than later.

    Changing Your Mindset on Time | Choosing the Right Coding Company | Regaining Control of Collections

    Changing Your Mindset on Time | Choosing the Right Coding Company | Regaining Control of Collections

    Plan to join us for the upcoming webinar on the Home Health Proposed Rule 2023 by registering at https://healthrevpartners.com/webinar-the-2023-proposed-rule-for-home-health/

    What if time was created to protect you? How can we use it to. better our lives and how to serve others? Lack of time management causes anxiety and stress, sleep issues and even anger or depression. In the work place, it can cause burnout. As leaders, our employees have lives outside of work. Most people are fighting a battle against time before they even grab their favorite cup of coffee. 

    Michael gives his personal example of how he sets his daily schedule to renew his mind and be prepared for life's challenges and serve others through what he calls, "Me Inc."



    When is comes to finding a coding company, never make decision on price alone. Use the given steps to find the right partnership. As consumers, we are in pursuit of value that fits the price. What you are really looking for is quality, compliance, data and a brand that fits your company. 

    To regain control of collections, there are some common problems we have identified. From Payor set-up and intake to posting payments and claim adjustments, Home Health Revealed lists the steps to take back the process and jump start your collections.

    Automation Revolution: How Home Health is being Impacted by Robots and AI?

    Automation Revolution: How Home Health is being Impacted by Robots and AI?

    While automation is not new, the surge in technology and the use of additional AI features are greatly impacting the home health industry.

    Automation is really just the use of machines with process automation capabilities to help with processes.

    Many menial and repetitive tasks are being replaced with robots. With the staff shortage, the use of automation is becoming even more important. AI or Artificial intelligence is also being used. Speech recognition, image recognition, and censors are being used to create processes and make decisions.

    Machines or bots are programmed to perform tasks as a human would based on a set of parameters. Built using algorithms or mathematical functions. We use is all the time in social media, Alexa, smart phones, vehicles. It’s a series of inputs and outputs. It can only respond based on its programming.

    We have really identified three major parts of the home health process that have been impacted by automation: those are the intake process, the patient care portion, and then the revenue cycle.

    Listen to learn more about each of those aspect. 

    AND....



    We're taking this show on the road! Home Health Revealed is going "on tour" so to speak. We will be recording live at conferences and trade shows this summer.
