Updates and Insights from our Clinical Resource Team
Five Ways Post-Acute Care Providers Can Minimize Hospital Readmissions
October will usher in a new era of performance transparency and financial risk for Medicare-certified post-acute care providers. That’s when provisions of two new federal laws combine to require these providers to publicly report their 30-day hospital readmission rates. If their readmission rates are too high, they will face penalties of up to 2 percent of their Medicare payments.
Preparing Long-Term Care Facilities for New CMS Survey Process
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ new survey process for long-term care facilities is set to start this November. The CMS mandated the new survey process through the agency’s final Reform of Requirements for Long-Term Care Facilities regulations issued in November 2016.
Nutrition: The ‘Forgotten Element’ of Wound Healing
The role of nutrition in pressure injury (PI) prevention and treatment is a well-recognized factor and an essential component of wound management. Unfortunately, proper nutritional support is often the “forgotten element” that is necessary in maintaining all phases of wound healing. Wounds will not heal without proper nutrition, and malnutrition is a key risk factor in the development of wounds.
