Optimize visit and discipline utilization to achieve clinical excellence and financial viability.

Home health organizations are finding it difficult to navigate periods of care, with many facing increased rates of over and under-utilization occurrences, including Low Utilization Payment Adjustment (LUPA) rates. McBee Episode Management Services help improve the delivery of the patient’s plan of care. Our clinical team partners with your organization’s clinical leaders to develop custom care guidelines that reduce rehospitalization, help mitigate avoidable LUPAs, improve visit utilization, and achieve value-based care delivery with improved clinical outcomes. Patients and referring providers will count on your organization for the best care and patient experience.

An episode management analysis performed by McBee tracks care patterns and documents the root cause of both LUPAs and over-utilization within each period of care. With a patient-centric approach, our clinical consultants provide your organization with key insights and discipline utilization to identify trends, optimize areas of improvement, and recommend next best steps to integrate new care patterns into your culture.
