Health care delivery is moving towards a value based purchasing system that will share risk between Medicare and health care providers including home health. Home Care Agencies must be proactive in making clinical practice and process changes to improve outcomes in order to thrive in the new marketplace. The International Classification of Function, Disability and Health (ICF) is a useful tool that has the power to assist clinicians in determining barriers and facilitators towards helping patients/clients improve their health. The ICF tangibly moves clinicians towards a patient-centered model of care and engagement to achieve improved outcomes.
