KHA is pleased to announce that the Hospital Longitudinal Analysis Reports are available for Fourth Quarter 2016 and First Quarter 2017. Participating hospitals received a secure email yesterday with two reports – the Kentucky State Report and a hospital-specific Readmissions Report.

KHA will host a webinar to discuss how to interpret the reports:

KHA Diamond Sponsor Bluegrass Care Navigators, previously Hospice of the Bluegrass, was recently named a 2017 Hospice Honors Elite recipient by Deyta Analytics, a division of HEALTHCAREfirst. Hospice Honors is a prestigious program that recognizes hospices providing the highest level of quality as measured from the caregiver’s point of view.

Separately, Modern Healthcare has honored Bluegrass Care Navigators, naming it one of its “2017 Best Places to Work.” The annual national award recognizes companies that continuously strive to improve their work environment and increase employee engagement, satisfaction and retention through innovative changes in the workplace. It was only the second year that Bluegrass Care Navigators participated in the program.

KHA is thankful for all the sponsors that help support the Association and its goals.

A few months ago, KHA Diamond Sponsor Hospice of the Bluegrass announced they would change their name to reflect a broader scope of services. They found that the hospice-anchored name is often perceived as a barrier to referring to their care and services beyond hospice.

In fact, many health care partners and the community at large are surprised to learn that in addition to hospice care, they provide private pay medical and non-medical home care, transitional care, palliative care and community grief services.

The company's new name is Bluegrass Care Navigators. It reflects their expanding scope of services as well as expertise in guiding or providing the right care at the right time in the right setting. Think of them as a continuum of care for the seriously ill and connect with them to begin assistance to your patients and their families. They are available 24/7, 365 days a year, for your referral call, at 855-492-0812.

Alan Coppock at Post Acute Care ForumThe Kentucky Hospital Association’s Post Acute Care (PAC) Forum met on March 24. The PAC Forum consists of long-term acute care hospitals, physical rehabilitation hospitals, swing bed hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, hospice, home health agencies and psychiatric hospitals.

The forum met for a day-long exercise on bundled payments with a goal of determining how to manage a patient through the post acute care continuum to provide the best level of care.

The bundled payment exercise took several months of planning with a key group of PAC providers and KHA staff. The providers selected pneumonia as the primary and secondary diagnosis related group (DRG) as the bundle. The key missing piece to find was the actual costs to the provider. Participants could determine the average...
