During this session, we will explain the implementation of our first EHR across a 31-community Assisted Living management company, including the technology used. We will discuss Point of Care and eMAR success and how that has led to increased staff and resident satisfaction. Incident tracking, trending, and safety improvement will be explored. By personalizing assessments in PointClickCare liability has decreased while regulatory compliance has increased (decreased Regulatory insufficiencies/deficiencies). Partnering with PointClickCare has also led us to further technology advancements (ex. pharmacy integration). Reimbursement is increasing due to the ability to track and trend census, services provided, and the ability to bill these services.

Participants will better understand the importance of:
  • Quality outcomes in care, assessments, and safety
  • Capturing accurate reimbursement in the AL setting
  • Utilizing PointClickCare for state regulatory success

In this ever-changing healthcare era, we are continuously faced with new quality measures and new payment systems, along with greater expectations from the public, surveyors, and policy makers. Adapting to these new demands requires the use of innovative strategies. With the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) efforts shifting focus from volume to value, it is critical that Post-Acute Care (PAC) providers understand the implications of the numerous reimbursement reforms. From Bundled Payment Initiatives to the proposed Resident Classification System (RCS1) and the Quality Payment Program, PAC providers need to know how to put this puzzle together. This presentation offers the Skilled Nursing provider clarity on the various programs and their impact, as well as strategies for meeting the challenge of a consumer-centric health economy. The future is fast approaching and what SNF’s do not know may hurt their bottom line sooner rather than later.

Participants will:
  • Understand key components of CMS Innovation Models, and the pending regulatory reimbursement changes (RCS-1)
  • Discuss the focus of CMS Innovation strategies surrounding Medicare Shared Saving Programs (MSSP), Value Based Care initiatives, and identify challenges specific to PAC providers
  • Learn effective strategies to manage change and benefit from the new opportunities inherent to the pay for performance methodology
  • Identify the various elements that are incorporated to determine reimbursement in the RCS-1 payment mode

Senior Living providers have adopted a process of assessing and charging residents for different “tier” levels of service as opposed to utilizing an all-inclusive rental amount. Charging the resident by the level of service provided allows for flexibility in your pricing structure, and tells the resident that they are only being charged for the services they are receiving. However, providers may not have really determined if the charges applied actually cover the value of the services rendered. As the Baby Boomer generation begins to populate the Senior Living market, providers will need to analyze the true costs of providing care and services to their resident occupants. This course will review the different options Senior Living providers may choose for tracking and recognizing revenue derived from service level charges.

Participants will be better able to:
  • Identify methods of revenue recognition for resident acuity charges, including time-based service charges, detailed service level assessments, and weighted assessment scoring
  • Choose a method for reporting service revenue to the General Ledger that meets financial reporting objectives
  • Analyze facility costs to assure that level of care or tier charges cover actual costs, including fixed facility costs, specialized services and programs, and service staff wages
  • Create and utilize tools for tracking care and services provided within the Senior Living setting

In a world of increased Medicare Advantage penetration, states increasingly moving toward a Managed Medicaid environment, and alternative payment models taking shape, many home health providers struggle to adapt. While there are a number of resources to educate agencies on the payment model changes from a macro level, practical insight on how these changing models impact day-to-day business is often hard to find. In this session, we will explore trends in payor activity, and provide functional advice on how home health agencies can respond. Attendees will hear from a home health provider on the tactics that his business has found helpful in successfully adapting to the changing payor landscape.

It’s a sector characterized by complexity – and the challenges faced by long-term care providers in providing consistent, high-quality care are significant. From multiple EHR systems to resource limitations and variation in knowledge and clinical practices, the long-term care sector is incredibly demanding to navigate. In addition to these systemic issues, residents living in long-term care typically have multiple chronic conditions or comorbidities and may struggle in coping with new surroundings, new caregivers and a new way of life. Providing the holistic, resident-centric care that residents deserve can be difficult as conditions become increasingly complex. Care providers are trying to treat these conditions while managing risk, costs, and preventing readmissions into acute care facilities. However, studies show that innovative clinical solutions have an unmatched ability to close this gap, and when they are integrated into workflows, patient and resident outcomes improve, ultimately benefiting residents, families, homes, and the system at large. This session will explore how novel solutions, such as those provided by Think Research and PointClickCare, are supporting care providers in making evidence-based decisions at the point of care.

Participants will have the opportunity to:
  • Understand quality gaps in long-term care
  • Identify possible interventions, including innovative clinical solutions
  • Understand adoption barriers that exist in the sector
  • Learn how innovative clinical solutions can be successful in a long-term care home
  • Learn about one non-profit home's success: Union Villa

A 2015 Center for Disease Control (CDC) American study shows that senior care residents receive just 11 minutes of daily engagement outside of assistance with activities of daily living. Resident engagement too often fails to meet the needs and preferences of residents resulting in a low quality of life and sense of purpose. This increases isolation, depression, and the use of antidepressant or antipsychotic medications. Providers are also struggling to know who among their residents needs the most engagement. Today's consumers and their families want purposeful engagement, but providers are facing staffing shortages and inadequate funding. Much of the engagement workflow is still done using paper. These obstacles provide an incredible opportunity. Person-centered and therapeutic engagement opportunities can support purposeful living based on a resident’s interests and current capabilities. Responsive Health Management will describe how to operationalize evidence-based, interdisciplinary strategies that have enhanced quality of life for their residents.
Person-centered engagement and programming not only contribute to strengthening residents’ resiliency, but also provide the opportunity for them to enjoy active, engaged and meaningful lives, as well as potentially delay their progression to higher levels of care. Meaningful engagement allows for better outcomes, staff efficiency, regulatory risk reduction (especially with the new U.S. regulations around person-centered care) and reduction of readmissions. The session will also highlight current research done in partnership with Responsive Health Management, Baycrest’s Center for Aging and Brain Health Innovation, and Linked Senior.

Participants will:
  • Understand the concept of person-centered therapeutic engagement

It is estimated that 10% or more of the claims received by payers go unpaid due to rejections. Additionally, there is a perception that claims are lost by payers, creating timely filing concerns. This session explores the idea that there is no such thing as a lost claim. More often than not, what is lost is the messaging coming back from the payer regarding the disposition of the claim. We will look at the various forms of messaging known as Payer Correspondence. We examine each type of Payer Correspondence to identify tactics for capturing the important messaging contained and actions to avoid or correct errors in clinical and administrative documentation.

Participants will be better able to:
  • Identify various forms of payer correspondence
  • Understand what to look for in payer correspondence
  • Create performance measures
  • Implement continuous billing improvement
