[Toolkit] Get Better at PDPM: Improve Care and Reimbursement

By Prime Care Tech Marketing on Mon, Nov 21, 2022 @ 08:23 AM

Are Long-term, post-acute (LTPAC) operators finding PDPM as a significant pain point? Prime Care Tech and Century Rehab's new primeVIEW Century Therapy Plus can help. Recently, in a joint press release we announced the addition of a first-of-kind technology for comparing therapist assessment data to that of clinical staff.

Automating this time-consuming process of tracking and comparing this data empowers senior care operators to achieve three goals: 

  • Identify differences in assessment data captured by therapists and clinical staff in a near real-time alerts-based tool.
  • Proactively address those differences before a care plan and associated reimbursement is finalized.
  • Reduce reliance on manual and time-consuming analysis of assessment and care data.

This is HUGE! PDPM is fully implemented across the SNF industry. The ability to identify the differences between the therapist and the clinical assessment minimizes the time needed to collect and compare data throughout a patient stay.

We discuss this in more detail during our recent webinar with Century Rehabilitation, which was also a well-attended session during the recent PointClickCare Summit. Be sure to sign up for this replay to hear more.

Combining primeVIEW's dashboard analytics with Century Rehabilitation’s therapy care data offers our clients a complete view of their patients' care plan. This takes the guesswork out of calculating PDPM, enabling staff to convert two-hour meetings with therapy providers into quick 15-minute conversations over easy-to-compare assessments. 

Together we can better serve long-term post-acute operators! Learn more about the integration and dashboard for primeVIEW by downloading our primeVIEW Century Therapy Plus e-sheet. Or better, get in touch for a demo.

[Tech Tip!] Cloud Craze: Are You a CIO Worried About Cloud ROI?

By Prime Care Tech Marketing on Sat, Nov 12, 2022 @ 09:15 AM

With today's rising costs, healthcare facilities must keep a tight grasp on their budgets! With that said, there's a trend of news articles suggesting CIOs are not seeing ROI from moving to cloud-based services.


But MedCityNews is debunking this, reminding us that change is neither easy nor cheap. In their article, Debunking Cloud Cost and ROI Hogwash for Healthcare, they explain how the cloud is in fact revolutionizing healthcare systems, delivering both cost and time savings. 


In another article from Becker's Hospital Review, 'Cloud projects are powering forward': Health system CIOs on cloud spending amid economic pressures, Scott Arnold, Executive Vice President and CIO of Tampa General Hospital, says “We don't view cloud service as a 'nice to have' or unnecessary expense.” 


Why? Because hospitals and healthcare facilities need to move EHRs around while storing patient data in a secure location. The cost to provide a facility with all the on-site equipment and energy for this would easily equal or trample the cost of an IT-provided cloud service that provides cybersecurity, resilience, agility, and scalability. 


The takeaway here is to have patience in seeking ROI from conversion to cloud-based services – and to strategically plan how and when you might embark upon this. But it is a necessary adaptation to meet the healthcare industry's critical and fast-changing needs.


"Cloud power is what drives the rapid digital innovation we see across pretty much every other industry — and it enables healthcare organizations to solve increasingly complex problems more affordably, quickly, and reliably."


Our primeCLOUD team can help by providing you with the strategy, security, cost control, operational efficiency, reliability, and agility to maximize your IT performance. Get in touch to strategize your transition to cloud-based services.
