Contending with new LUPA thresholds can be a challenge for home health organizations of all sizes. Our approach to episode management improves the delivery of the patient’s plan of care. Our clinical teams partner with your home health agency to develop custom care guidelines that reduce readmissions, help avoid LUPAs (Low Utilization Payment Adjustments), improve visit utilization, and provide patients with a positive outcome. Patients and referring providers will count on your organization for the best care and patient experience.
An episode management analysis completed by McBee not only measures your current LUPA rate but also identifies key indicators that promote effective episode management. You’ll have key insight into the clinical and functional needs as well as visit patterns within your low utilization episodes, making establishing new care patterns into your culture a smooth process.
