Home Health Value Based Purchasing (hhvbp). What Is it? 

What are the expanded HHVBP Model measures?

In selecting the applicable measures for inclusion in the expanded HHVBP Model, CMS has applied principles from the CMS Meaningful Measures Initiative, and considered the domains of the CMS Quality Strategy that map to six National Quality Strategy (NQS) priority areas:

  1. Make care safer by reducing harm caused in the delivery of care
  2. Strengthen person and family engagement as partners in their care
  3. Promote effective communication and coordination of care
  4. Promote effective prevention and treatment of chronic disease
  5. Work with communities to promote best practices of healthy living
  6. Make care affordable

We simply “activate” the home as a key site in the care continuum through our provider network, which is made up of board certified physicians, mental health professionals, RPM Plus/chronic care, dermatologycare navigators, specialists and pharmacy services.

Both physicians and therapists are available anytime, anywhere in the U.S. and Puerto Rico. Our providers are multilingual. We now offer an end-to-end Remote Patient Monitoring and billing solution with no upfront cost and free devices. Free demonstration and trial .  

Telethink Health is uniquely well-positioned to accommodate home-based care providers of any size or population. Monthly (wholesale) subscription rates are based on census. For more information, please contact: Rob Gillespie at

HOW TO FIND OUT IF YOUR MEDICAL BILL CAN BE FORGIVEN Lots of people qualify— but providers won’t always tell you, or make it easy. Luckily, you can get help. Sponsored by Telethink Health If you’re facing a medical bill, you may qualify to get it written off entirely.  Charity care policies make that possible. The majority of U.S. hospitals are non-profits, and they’re legally required to have charity care policies, sometimes they’re called financial assistance policies. These policies mean that if your income falls below a certain level, the hospital has to forgive your bill. This is even more powerful than it might seem, for three reasons: First, you don’t necessarily have to be dirt poor to qualify for help:   Many hospitals give financial assistance to people with incomes at multiples of the federal poverty level.  Second, for-profits often have charity-care policies too — and  studies   show  they’re at least as generous as nonprofits, on the whole. Third, charity care isn’t limit
  Survey: While Only Half of Americans Have Heard of Virtual Primary Care, Satisfaction Is High “Virtual primary care gives individuals the opportunity to work with innovative services that make healthcare more convenient, accessible, and fit into their increasingly busy schedules. The study’s findings reiterate the desires of consumers to use digital technology — along with using traditional in-person care options — to take control of their health.” Med City News Best Buy
Have insurance? Good luck finding an in-network mental health professional. And be prepared to pay a bundle out-of-pocket. As a psychiatrist, Dr. Andrew Popper wanted to see lower- and middle-income patients who often face the greatest mental health challenges. He also thought taking insurance was part of a well-rounded practice. But years of hassles to get insurance companies to pay routine claims wore him down. For Popper, who practices in the Boston area and volunteers as an instructor at Harvard Medical School, the last straw came in 2022. Suddenly, an elderly patient he’d been seeing for more than a decade was getting her weekly claims turned down. The amount was just $30, but the money mattered to the patient. Popper said he made about a half-dozen calls to the insurance company – often more than 30 minutes each when the prompts and time on hold were factored in. Each time, the company’s representative agreed there’d been a mistake – but the claims were never paid.  Better health
