[PR] Enquire and Prime Care Technologies Partner to Deliver Critical Performance Data to the Senior Care Continuum

By Prime Care Tech Marketing on Thu, Jun 25, 2020 @ 10:17 AM

Enquire, a leading provider of cloud CRM, marketing automation and contact center solutions for senior living communities and post-acute care organizations is proud to announce a new partnership with Prime Care Technologies, a 17-year data warehousing and integration partner to post-acute care and senior living providers.

Most recognized for its primeVIEW facility performance dashboard, Prime Care Technologies continues to evolve its flexible IT services and cloud software based on industry demand. This partnership with Enquire delivers referral data that provides transparency to providers across the continuum. Relying on the primeVIEW interface, Prime Care can combine Enquire’s referral data with data from critical third-party applications (EHR, accounting, purchasing, labor, staffing, etc.) to equip communities with a ‘bird’s eye’ view into their daily financial performance.

For post-acute providers, the benefit of this aggregated data is even greater. It helps them immediately cost out managed care referrals and accelerate decisions while steering their business toward the best possible performance.

“With the implementation of the Patient-Driven Payment Model (PDPM), post-acute care organizations require more data to make informed decisions around referrals. This partnership with Prime Care Technologies is invaluable to not only improve response time to managed care referrals, but also to maximize revenue opportunities,” states Robbie Redlin, Enquire Chief Strategy Officer.

“Accepting referral patients requires providers to consider multiple factors, including their ability to deliver a quality outcome, while also ensuring adequate reimbursement,” says Jim Hoey, Prime Care Technologies CEO. “We already provide the clinical and financial data they need, but Enquire’s referral data really completes the story for each potential resident, enabling facilities to make informed decisions in the moment.”

Government-Funded Telehealth, No Longer Just for Rural Facilities

By Prime Care Tech Marketing on Thu, Jun 11, 2020 @ 02:57 PM

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) are making it more lucrative than ever for senior care facilities to toe-test telehealth – and they’re no longer catering to just rural facilities.

FCC Funding

 To date, the FCC’s COVID-19 Telehealth Program has approved funding for 238 health care providers: 

  • Urban and rural
  • In 41 states plus Washington, D.C.
  • Totaling $84.96 million (of $200 million available)

This means there’s 58 percent – $115 million – in funding still on the table.

FCC Telehealth Funding Awarded, To Date

Criteria to award funding

  • Conditions to be treated
  • Goals and objectives for use
  • Timeline for service/device deployment
  • Factors/metrics used to measure impact
  • Geographic area/ population served (pre-existing strain, provider shortages, rural closures, limited broadband and/or internet adoption)
  • Ability to target high-risk and vulnerable patients

Resources

CMS Changes

Meanwhile, effective March 6 and for the duration of the COVID-19 emergency, Medicare is willing to pay clinicians the same fee for services rendered via telehealth to any beneficiary anywhere (e.g., treat-in-place). Previously it was limited to rural SNFs and/or required patients to come to a telehealth facility for treatment. Now various clinicians, including specialists, can treat your patients right in your facility and all skilled nursing facilities are eligible.

And, don't be put off by the 'temporary' implication of this change. Word has it, CMS may make temporary telehealth provisions permanent, based on positive results.

Resources

Conclusion

With telemedicine trending as it is, make sure you take time to understand the funding available and get a slice of that pie. What's more, this may be the fix you've been looking for to fill staffing gaps. Virtual treatment grants you access to remote clinicians anywhere, not just locally.

The Hartman Value Profile Retention Tool – Not Just Another Personality Test

By Prime Care Tech Marketing on Fri, May 22, 2020 @ 12:17 PM

hartman-value-profileThe Hartman Value Profile (HVP) has been used in major U.S. healthcare settings since the 1970s for recruitment, placement, development, and team-building – and, with exceptional results. Its success is based on its mathematical algorithms and axiology – or, the science of values.

Though we don’t like to believe it, we are all creatures of patterns. Through his studies, logician and philosopher Robert Hartman found that we run through these patterns each day to make decisions. Nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1973, Hartman created a proprietary database of leadership profiles.

Today, these profiles are identified using the Judgement Index™, developed by Hartman’s protégé, Steve Byrum and his associates. This assessment can reveal a wide range of critically important business attitudes and behaviors, including employees’:

  • Level of engagement
  • Level of focus
  • Ability to follow directions
  • Trainability
  • Problem-solving aptitude
  • Energy for solving problems
  • Interpersonal skills
  • Work-life balance

Unlike the many personality tests (e.g., Myers-Briggs), a Hartman Value Profile assessment reveals underlying values that drive behavior and why these behaviors result in success (or failure) across leaders and teams. The assessment can also be repeated over time to measure a worker’s professional growth and progress. Personalities don’t change, but values often do.

Successful companies and HR consultants continue to use the HVP today because of its unique ability to foster business continuity, executive development, and succession planning. In other words, it helps you hire – and RETAIN – those employees that are likely to thrive in your organization.


LEARN MORE! Join HPV/Judgement Index™ expert Steve Byrum for our May 28 webinar, When Staffing Takes A 180, Assess Don’t Guess. Attendees get a FREE assessment, along with a follow-up session to explain results.
