Medicare Part B Program Development with Quality Indicators

Medicare Part B Program Development with Quality Indicators
 
Many facilities strive to achieve a balanced rehabilitation program which includes a strong Medicare Part B Therapy Program. Harmony suggests utilization of the Quality Indicator Report to assist with identification of appropriate rehab candidates.  This report takes information from the most recent MDS and should be reviewed by the rehab staff once a month.  This report should be a integral step in the review process for generating a Medicare Part B caseload.  It should be reviewed monthly to ensure that patients who may have been missed by other screening processes receive the needed rehab services. 
 
Therapy screening is essential in identifying patients for areas of decline or improvement, before loss becomes permanent or opportunities for improvement are missed.
 
Harmony recommends that the rehab staff have the following issues or programs in mind when completing rehab rounds, dining rounds, screens and review of the quality indicator report. 
Positioning.
Contracture management.
ADL's including bathing, dressing, grooming and toileting.
Eating, weight loss and swallowing.
Communication.
Ambulation.
Transfers.
Bed mobility.
Restraint reduction.
Skin issues.
Incontinence.
