13 ACHC PROGRAMS AND SERVICES

14

15 ACHC CORPORATE CUSTOMERS 15

16 EXPERIENCE THE ACHC DIFFERENCE Commitment to exceptional customer service Standards created for providers, by providers All-inclusive pricing Ability to create electronic tools to incorporate state regulations Provision of tools and consultative approach to ensure ongoing compliance 16

17 ACHC QUALITY By making quality a central focus of ACHC, we are able to design programs and services that provide our customers with the ability to deliver consistent, high-quality care We ensure ACHC quality performance through: Quality Management System certified to ISO 9001:2008 Quarterly evaluation of ACHC s performance conducted by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS): 12 performance measures rated at 100% 3 performance measures rated 93.3% to 99.9% Monthly internal audits to ensure continuous compliance and performance improvement 17

18 ACCREDITATION EXPERTISE Expert Clinical Directors Knowledgeable Clinical Educators Dedicated Clinical Review Specialists Experienced Surveyors Personal Account Advisors Distinguished Board of Commissioners 18

19 EXPERIENCED SURVEYORS Possess direct experience in an administrative or quality leadership role in all programs for which they conduct surveys Participate in ongoing, mandatory training to ensure expertise with regulations and standards Provide explanation of survey findings 19

20 ACCREDITATION UNIVERSITY ACHC places great value on continuing education for agencies to achieve and maintain accreditation. Educational resources include: Hands-on workshops ACHC Accreditation Guide to Success workbooks Ongoing communication including regulatory updates, compliance tips, and valuable improvement strategies Customer Central customized online portal Ongoing compliance checklists

21 IMPORTANCE OF RENEWALS ACHC has a sincere commitment to retaining customers ACHC created a full-time position solely to work with agencies prior to their renewals: Provides written notifications beginning at 12 month pre-expiration Sends an accreditation packet with concise process directions Personally calls all renewing organizations that have not responded Analyzes data to determine reasons for nonrenewal to assist agencies and offers: Flexible payments plans Price negotiation Review facts about the home health sanctions ACHC notifies States 60 days prior to accreditation expiration to provide the state as much time as possible to schedule a state survey (newly implemented) 21

22 ACHC STANDARDS

23 ACCREDITATION STANDARDS ACHC has a reputation for providing exceptional customer service and relevant standards that: Are patient-centered and applicable to the type of services and care being provided Have clear, concise language with helpful interpretations for implementing and maintaining compliance Have a crosswalk for customers to transition to ACHC 23

24 OVERVIEW OF ACHC STANDARDS Overview of Standards: Section 1: Organization and Administration Section 2: Program/Service Operations Section 3: Fiscal Management Section 4: Human Resource Management Section 5: Provision of Care and Record Management Section 6: Quality Outcomes/Performance Improvement Section 7: Risk Management: Infection and Safety Control 24

25 PARTNERING WITH THE TEXAS DEPARTMENT OF AGING AND DISABILITY SERVICES (DADS)

26 PARTNERING WITH DADS Established collaborative relationship: Met with DADS to determine their specific needs Held regularly scheduled conference calls to ensure Texas requirements were met and to finalize ACHC processes Provided a detailed crosswalk for ACHC Accreditation Standards to Texas State licensure requirements: Created by ACHC, reviewed by DADS Trained ACHC Surveyors on the Texas survey tool: Created link on ACHC Surveyor Central for Surveyor reference ACHC monitors DADS Listserv and reviews DADS communication for additional Surveyor training or modification to Texas survey tool. 26

27 LICENSURE SURVEYS Currently conduct licensure surveys for: Florida Missouri Texas State licensure process customized to state: Florida and Missouri are two-step processes Texas is a one-step process Customized process for a state with no state licensure: Iowa request survey contains state-specific criteria related to: Criminal background checks Dependent adult abuse background checks Child abuse background checks 27

28 CROSSWALK OF STANDARDS 28

29 CUSTOMIZED DATA COLLECTION TOOL Each standard has required evidence that the Surveyor will review, such as: Observation Home visit Interview Personnel files Patient records Contracts Policies and procedures 29

30 CUSTOMIZED DATA COLLECTION TOOL With all evidence, fulfillments are created Fulfillments are the questions or observations that the Surveyor will ask or observe during the survey: Fulfillments were created specific to Texas licensure requirements Fulfillments reference the Texas rule number (e.g., Agency Organizational Changes): Track top 10 licensure deficiencies specific to Texas 30

31 CUSTOMIZED DATA COLLECTION TOOL FOR TEXAS 31

32 CUSTOMIZED DATA COLLECTION TOOL FOR IOWA Home health agencies in Iowa are not required to obtain a license, but the Iowa Department of Inspections and Appeals (DIA) provides specific criteria on how new initial home health agencies should be processed. ACHC created a process flow for providers to use. This document outlines the steps to follow for the provider, accreditation organization (AO) and DIA. 32

33 CUSTOMIZED DATA COLLECTION TOOL FOR IOWA

34 FLORIDA S MANDATORY ACCREDITATION MODEL Since 2008, Florida has required continuous ongoing mandatory accreditation for home care agencies to maintain licensure. (Agencies licensed prior to 2008 were grandfathered, whereby, no accreditation is required unless they experience a change in ownership). This model provides many advantages: A scheduled triennial survey will be conducted Agencies are not returned to the state at the time of accreditation expiration Complaints are investigated by the AO Agencies instead of states assume the cost After completion of a survey with deficiencies, the AO assumes responsibility for ensuring the agency creates a comprehensive Plan of Correction (POC) and submits evidence that the POC is followed 34

35 THE ACHC PROCESS

36 ACCREDITATION PROCESS 36

37 POST-SURVEY PROCESS All accreditation survey summaries are reviewed by ACHC Review Committee that consists of at least three program specialists. Survey decisions given within 10 business days from the last survey day. 37

38 POST-SURVEY PROCESS

39 POST SURVEY PROCESS POCs are due within 10 calendar days from the date of the decision letter: The POC template that the agency receives is already populated with their deficiencies from their Summary of Findings (SOF) Clinical Review Specialists are available to assist organizations with completing the POC 39

40 40

41 REGULATORY PAPERWORK PROCESS Once the initial decision is made by the ACHC Review Committee the regulatory paperwork process begins: Regulatory packet is created: CMS paperwork is started, including: Summary of Findings

42 REGULATORY PAPERWORK PROCESS Once the POC has been approved, the Clinical Specialist completes all required forms. The Regulatory Coordinator compiles the documents: Updates ASSURE Creates Approval letter The Quality Specialist audits approximately 50% of new regulatory packets: 15 quality indicators are reviewed Last quarter accuracy was 98.6%

43 SUBMISSION OF REGULATORY PACKETS ACHC customizes packets according to the specifications of each: SA RO Central Office Regulatory packets are sent according to the preference of each SA, RO, Central Office via: Certified mail Fax The Regulatory Department is available for any needed assistance. 43
