Improving STAR Ratings with Behavioral Health and Home Care

Many home health patients have co-existing chronic behavioral health problems that go untreated. If not addressed, problems like anxiety and depression leave patients unable to self-manage diabetes, congestive heart failure, COPD and other serious medical conditions. Watch the webinar now to understand the statistics on the prevalence of psychiatric issues among the home-bound elderly and explain why the failure to identify or deal with these conditions affects compliance and outcomes. Join experts Katherine Vanderhorst and Amy Craven from C&V Senior Care Specialists, Inc. and our own Teresa Craig, as they discuss how recognizing and managing behavioral health diagnoses can have a positive outcome on your agency’s STAR ratings.

You will learn:

  • The prevalence and severity of behavioral health issues and chronic conditions among the home-bound elderly
  • The benefits of responding to both patients’ medical and psychiatric conditions and the impact on home health outcomes
  • The steps for a successful behavioral health program
