As of March 16, approx 4700 home care agencies registered to participate in this initiative. I am responsible for some of the QI implementation in our agency, including outcomes. I registered the first day. The first implementation package was sent in March....it has to do with hospital risk assessments. We already have in place many of the best practices they will be dealing with, but I am hopeful we may gain an increase knowledge, or maybe just be able to tweak our processes a bit. Our goal is to make our outcomes for ACH even better. We shall see.....it surely can't hurt and doesn't cost a thing.
