Blog: PDPM – Premature Celebration Could Be Your Costliest Mistake

February 12, 2020

Zimmet Healthcare recently wrote that PDPM is a “monumental improvement.” And, it is. For those of us who have spent hours, days, months, and even years prepping for PDPM, we’re satisfied with this new reimbursement model – even though there are plenty of concerns for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to address. Early reporting suggests that the per patient day ($PPD) revenue has improved, but it is not clear whether the aggregate Medicare reimbursement has improved, stayed the same, or decreased. Length of Stay (LOS), alternative payment models, and hospital referrals must be calculated into PDPM’s overall success, and though early findings suggest most are optimistic, it seems premature to offer a safe conclusion by just about anyone.

Blog: How Interventional Analytics is Reducing Avoidable Readmissions

September 13, 2019

Imagine you’re driving to the beach. It’s supposed to be a two-hour drive, but traffic and construction can affect your journey—sometimes by a lot. Ten years ago, you might have used a store-bought map or even directions printed from the internet. That provided plenty of information, but it was static. If there was a wreck causing a bottleneck 20 miles ahead, you wouldn’t know until you got there. Today, though, you use an app that tells you the most efficient way to go. The app updates conditions on the fly, so you find out about that bottleneck when it happens. And you learn how to avoid it. Your drive to the beach is smooth sailing because you have access to real-time data. Interventional Analytics is a lot like that app. Read more.

Maryland SNFs announce partnership to eradicate readmissions

05/15/2018 McKnights
Maryland skilled nursing facilities are partnering with a vendor to try and pare back pesky readmissions.

The Columbia-based LifeSpan Network, representing some 330 senior services organizations, announced last week that it is teaming up with Real Time Medical Systems. Member SNFs will receive detailed clinical alerts and recommendations on how to intervene and provide correct care.

Data from the Linthicum Heights, MD, vendor is generated in real time so LifeSpan providers will not have to rely on outdated info from the government. Real Time Clinical, as the product is called, is offered to LifeSpan members at a discounted rate through the partnership. The product gets info from electronic health records, and the company hopes it will enable providers to act quickly before a condition worsens, hopefully preventing unnecessary trips to the hospital.

“This partnership will provide our members and other skilled nursing operators with peace of mind, knowing that their efforts to provide the most effective possible care are based on accurate, real time data,” Kevin Heffner, president and CEO of LifeSpan, said in a press release. “After collaborating with us for many years, Dr. Rifkin has developed this valuable tool, which allows us to access data we were never before able to tap into in this manner. We believe Real Time will make our members and other providers stronger partners in the state’s Total Cost of Care model.”
