In July 2016, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) made several changes to the quality measures of the Five Star Nursing Home Quality Rating System. These include the addition of five new measures, one of which is basing reimbursements on the percentage of short-stay residents who are re-hospitalized after a nursing home admission.
How can long-term care communities reduce re-hospitalizations and ensure appropriate reimbursements? The path to a 5-Star rating starts with a 5-Star Resident.
Reduction in re-hospitalizations starts at admission with these 6 Steps:
LincWare helps LTC communities find the 5 Star resident, protect reimbursements and reduce re-hospitalization with Admit+ , a simple online, e-admissions solution. We incorporate all your admissions documents into one scrolling form, ensuring the right questions are answered up front, so only the residents you're most qualified to help are admitted.
Make admission decisions based on residents needs and your organizations' ability to care for those needs. Reaching for the stars has never been easier, more efficient, or as cost-effective as it is today.
