The outcome of care measures and the utilization measures are risk adjusted. Risk adjustment is a multistep process. The term risk adjusted as it relates to outcome measure simply means that “the purpose of risk adjusting outcome and utilization measures is to adjust reported values to account for case-mix differences among home health agencies; by adjusting the observed improvement rates for home health agencies with different patient clientele (case-mix differences), the resulting displayed value more closely reflects differences in agency quality” (Medicare, n.d.).

1. Home Healthcare Case: Given what you have learned about the accessibility and financing of home care services, are such services as readily available to other consumers as they were to Joan and Jerry? In this particular case regarding Joan and Jerry, and the availability of home health care services compared to that of others is a quite simple. Lack of knowledge and understanding is of the utmost detrimental in medical terms due to the fact that there are many programs that are available to help those with disabilities or home bound. In this case, perhaps Joan and Jerry 's daughter should have been more involved with the medical needs of both her parents. Especially due to the age of her father who was in desperate attempt to keep his disabled wife comfortable in their home. Home health care services are readily available to covered members of Medicare/Medicaid or other third-party payers. Although in Joan 's later days of life, her medical needs were being attended to by home health care professionals, perhaps her life could have been extended and foreseen medical conditions that could have prevented another stroke. "Being an informal caregiver plays a huge role in providing care and relief to long-term consumers (Pratt, 2010)." If Jerry would have taken advantage of home health care and it 's available services at an earlier stage, then perhaps he would not have to have had a hip replacement by having more rest to take care of himself.

California recently enacted a law on home care licensing that went into place on January 1 of 2016. This law mandates the need for a new state license for certain companies (not all of them) that are providers of in-home care that is non-medical; it also requires those companies to employ only home care aides who have been registered and background-checked by the California Department of Social Services (CDSS). The standards of the law benefit individuals who must hire home care workers (but this is only the case if licensed home care companies are used to provide those workers). If you are a resident of West Los Angeles and require such services in your home, you may want to take
