DTC Performance for DFW HOME HEALTH
The DTC performance for DFW HOME HEALTH is "Better Than National Rate". The DTC (or direct to community) rating is a measure of success of the home healthcare agency in helping to rehabilitate its clients.
The DTC-PAC measures assess successful discharge to the community from a PAC setting, with successful discharge to the community including no unplanned rehospitalizations and no death in the 31 days following discharge. Specifically, these measures report a provider’s riskstandardized rate of Medicare fee-for-service (FFS) patients/residents who are discharged to the community following a PAC stay, and do not have an unplanned readmission to an acute care hospital or LTCH in the 31 days following discharge to community, and who remain alive during the 31 days following discharge to community. Community, for this measure, is defined as home or self care, with or without home health services, based on Patient Discharge Status Codes 01, 06, 81, and 86 on the Medicare FFS claim. A statistical approach is used to calculate confidence intervals for the provider’s DTC rate. These confidence intervals are then compared to the national observed DTC rate to assign providers to performance categories for public reporting. The performance categories are (i) better than the national rate, (ii) no different from the national rate, and (iii) worse than the national rate.
