[Press Release] Prime Care and Century Rehab Intro Industry-First Therapy-to-Clinical Discrepancy Tracker

By Prime Care Tech Marketing on Mon, Oct 10, 2022 @ 04:28 PM

DULUTH, GA. (PRWEB), October 10, 2022 - Today Prime Care Technologies and Century Rehabilitation announce a strategic alliance to deliver better patient outcomes by integrating therapy and clinical electronic health records (EHR) data to senior care providers. Prime Care will use its industry-leading primeVIEW dashboard application to offer these consolidated data analytics to mutual Century Rehabilitation clients.

The partnership’s new therapy capabilities achieve three important goals. First to identify differences in assessment data captured by therapists and clinical staff. Second to present those differences in a near real-time alerts-based tool, to be addressed proactively before a care plan and its associated reimbursement is finalized. Third to reduce reliance on manual and time-consuming analysis of assessment and care data. The result is improved patient care and reimbursement accuracy.

The therapy capabilities also enhance primeVIEW’s existing analytics and dashboard capabilities. Therapy, clinical, and administrative staff can view current statistics and trends for a single facility or as an aggregate of multiple facilities. This helps providers identify opportunities to train employees and improve coordination between therapy, clinical, and reimbursement staff.

Integrating and aggregating data directly from EHRs and other core information systems, primeVIEW offers a single analytics dashboard that transforms the way organizations make decisions. At its core, primeVIEW is data you care about, simplified. One login delivers a multi-dimensional view of single or multi-facility performance, empowering leaders to drive productivity using critical benchmarks, rankings, and trends

Century Rehabilitation is reinventing the therapy-SNF partnership by delivering therapy margin growth while helping to see patients through the continuum of care. The company provides therapy, recruiting, and consulting services to skilled nursing and outpatient facilities.

Said Steve Hemke, Chief Strategy Officer at Century Rehab, "PDPM is fully implemented across our industry. But facilities simply are not staffed to compare every aspect of therapy’s assessments to those completed by the clinical team. Automating this labor-intensive task is essential to great care and a facility’s financial health.”

Century Rehabilitation’s CEO, Tammy Tuminaro added, “This isn’t just about improving the therapy care. Patient outcomes are dependent on collecting the perspectives of interdisciplinary caregivers. Patient care plans and the associated reimbursement are optimized only when all caregiver perspectives are integrated.”

"Prime Care has deep senior care expertise and the primeVIEW platform already provided robust integration with clinical, staffing, pharma, and other data. It was a natural fit to integrate therapy data and offer our clients a single view of their patients and facilities,” said Helmke.

Said Jonathan Duvall, Senior Director of Product Management at Prime Care, "We understand the pressure nursing homes are under to provide therapy and ensure patients' progress while also facing a labor shortage." He continued, " Identifying and communicating care needs doesn’t have to be a time-consuming review of care plans and MDS data. This integration has the potential to convert two-hour meetings with therapy providers into 15-minute conversations over easy-to-compare assessments. Efficiency through technology is now essential to delivering high-quality care and receiving adequate reimbursement for this care.”

Coordinated interdisciplinary care between skilled nursing and therapy teams is the ultimate measure of success among senior caregivers in today's market. The Prime Care and Century Rehabilitation alliance empowers providers to efficiently coordinate, track, and deliver exceptional skilled nursing care.

[Recap] The Buzz from Zimmet Healthcare's Annual Conference

By Prime Care Tech Marketing on Wed, Aug 31, 2022 @ 09:51 AM

The reimbursement focus from Zimmet Healthcare's annual conference shared the spotlight with a topic still fresh of mind for many skilled nursing operators – staffing shortages. However, session speaker Tara Gregorio, President of the Massachusetts Senior Care Association, advised staying away from staffing agencies – not only to reduce cost, but ensure a continuum of care for residents.

Attendees also discussed CMS's review of minimal staffing and how it might impact federal funding. This topic is better explained in the Infection Control Today article, CMS Proposed Minimum Staffing Requirements Could Cost $10B Annually.

As keenly noted in the Skilled Nursing News article, The Devil's in the Data: Why SNFs May Be Facing an Information Crisis, Marc Zimmet, President of Zimmet Healthcare Services Group, points out how randomly timed and siloed data results in inaccurate data. Said Zimmet, "The bottom line is everything you think you know about skilled nursing facility data is wrong, is inaccurate — and that’s the greatest danger facing skilled nursing."

Here's how we can help:

  • Our primeVIEW KPI dashboard solves this issue of disparate and dated information by integrating data from your multiple systems into a consolidated real-time view. 
  • Our primeCLAIMS revenue cycle management app is the only one built for and supported by post-acute billers. 

Take a step in the right direction and get in touch for a demo of primeVIEW!

[Recap] Operational Innovation Takes Center Stage at HealthTAC Spring 2022

By Prime Care Tech Marketing on Tue, Aug 30, 2022 @ 01:34 PM

East Sales Director, Joe Brown, sat on the "Problem Solving Innovations, Enhancing the Senior Living Industry" panel at HealthTAC West 2022. Central Sales Director, Scott Kozimor, also attended, as senior living operators talked candidly about the industry's current state.

Here's some advice from senior living operators on the topic of operational innovation:

  • Continuously monitor your empirical data to support needed change.
  • Consider 'firing yourself' and hiring a tech leader or partner.
  • Innovate in a moving-forward, clearly defined way – no more 'throwing spaghetti on the wall to see what sticks.'
  • Champion and participate in whatever innovation you choose to assure success.

Also discussed was how to make new operational innovation successful:

  • Build upon a strong technology foundation (i.e., best fiber, network, etc.)
  • Make sure it fits within your culture; engage key players to weigh in (i.e., Can we bring it together? Can we sustain it?)
  • Train your teams and staff well; measure profitability. 
  • Don't get passed by in the market because you overthink it.

A key concern brought up as an obstacle to innovation success was staff burnout. But senior living leaders responded positively, suggesting ways to re-energize and realign staffing:

  • Don't be afraid to try new ideas.
  • Consider replacing agency roles with inside staff.
  • Monitor and stabilize staffing trends (days, hours, etc.) to keep staff coming back.
  • Deploy applicant tracking technology.
  • Preserve internal knowledgebase – allow staff to go part-time or project-based.
  • Engage and involve Millennial staff.

As always, our participation in this networking event gave us perspective on how we can help this industry innovate for success. Did you know we offered: 

  • primeCLOUD – secure hosting, plus a line into best-of-breed technologies at partner-negotiated pricing.
  • primeVIEW – dashboard app for easily tracking staffing trends, plus other key operational trends (e.g., census, admissions/discharges, billing/receiving, etc).

Get in touch if we can become a partner in your path to operational innovation.
