Home Centered Care Institute (HCCI) Spotlight

 

 

The Home Centered Care Institute (HCCI) is a national non-profit dedicated to creating universal access to best practice house call programs to ensure that medically complex patients have access to high-quality care in their homes. HCCI assists programs across the country in building sustainable house call programs designed to care for the top 3-5% of the high care utilizers and reducing costs to accountable care organizations (ACOs), payers, and health systems, while enhancing the quality of care provided to patients.

 

How is your company advancing home care medicine?

HCCI accelerates the home-based primary care (HBPC) movement via education, consulting, research and advocacy in the following ways:

 

  • Education designed to meet the crucial need to rapidly expand the HBPC-capable workforce through live in-person and virtual workshops, live webinars and on-demand online courses, and customized education, plus HCCIntelligence™ resources, including a free hotline for guidance from knowledgeable HBPC experts, as well as useful tools, templates, and tip sheets available for download.
  • Consulting services customized to help HBPC practices succeed, including practice assessments, chart audits and coaching in the areas of coding, billing and documentation, provided by our team of experienced HBPC providers, practice managers and other professionals.
  • Research to solidify HBPC’s place as a distinct model of care, through the establishment of evidence-based clinical and operational best practices.
  • Advocacy in partnership with a wide range of allied organizations, including the American Academy of Home Care Medicine , to raise awareness among payers, policymakers and the public about the efficacy of HBPC.

  

What is something people may not know about your company?

HCCI’s expert staff includes physicians with extensive experience in HBPC, practice managers skilled in running house call programs and with national certifications in coding and medical auditing, and other professionals skilled in education and training, quality improvement and operations. Through our Centers of Excellence (and other key partnerships), we also have access to an interdisciplinary cadre of national leaders who serve as our faculty and subject matter experts.

HCCI can assist house call programs of all sizes and at all stages of development, including independent practices, hospital/health system-based programs, home and community-based Veteran services, and community-based hospice/palliative care organizations.
