As health care reform reaches the SNF setting, nursing home operations will undergo many changes, and showing value and improved quality will likely drive future revenue programs. In January 2015, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced that it would like 90 percent of all traditional Medicare payments to shift to a quality-based model by 2018. We will review the four current and future reporting programs and break down areas of measurement. Learn how to improve your facility’s standings and monitor facility rankings to be proactive in improving your value to CMS and other payers.
