Home Health Nursing: Standards, Assessment, Reimbursement, and Quality

Price: $54.95 Hours:15 Contact Hours
Item # N1810  

Home health care is the fastest growing industry in the United States based on the projection period of 2014-2024. The anticipated employment growth for the period is more than 760,000 jobs, reaching a total of over 2 million. While some of these jobs are for home health aides and personal care aides, a wide variety of healthcare professionals will be needed, particularly registered nurses.

Home health services will only continue to grow in an aging society and with the increased prevalence of chronic illnesses. The pressure on home care agencies to provide sound, evidence-based care is great. With publicly reported outcomes and agency ratings that will affect payment for care, it is critical for the home care nurse to provide the best care and to optimize patient outcomes. With the continued growth of the home care industry coupled with an expectation of excellence in clinical outcomes, there is clearly a need for highly educated home care nurses.

This course provides the nurse with an understanding of the structure of home health agencies, the federal regulations and reimbursement system, and standards of care and professional practice. The home care nurse cannot “just” provide exceptional clinical care in terms of assessment and treatments but must also provide this care in the context of the larger healthcare and home care system. The course is designed for both new and experienced home health nurses as well as those nurses who may be interested in pursuing a career in home health or who may work closely with home health agencies.
