Staffing

As part of an overall facility assessment, the staffing analysis provides SNF’s with clinical and regulatory-based operational detail that is founded on historical utilization and staffing by discipline.

In addition, this analysis is critical to ensuring accurate and appropriate reimbursement for value-based purchasing, ACOs and bundled payment initiatives. This analysis is essential to successfully achieving outcomes while preserving the integrity of the program. Case management by Nursing and Rehabilitation is one of the primary factors affecting clinically anticipated stays. Identifying trends in data (re-hospitalization, discharge location, etc.) allows facility’s to ensure they have the clinical resources available to manage the facility’s population and prevent re-hospitalizations. This analysis results in customized recommendations to ensure appropriate and optimal staffing patterns that enhance productivity, efficiency and patient outcomes.

Staffing is available for:

  • Therapy
  • Nursing
  • MDS
