70th AHCA/NCAL Convention and Expo
Did you know that the only industry more regulated than long-term care is that of nuclear power plant facilities. As crazy as that may sound, this is the world we live in. Facilities are expected to not only meet the regulatory standards of Value Based Purchasing (VBP), Quality Reporting Program (QRP) and Improving Medicare Post-Acute Care (IMPACT) Act, but to exceed them. Last October facilities were given a joggle when the 2% reduction in payment occurred under VBP. Then an additional 40% of the facilities across the country received no incentive payment. If that wasn’t enough, many facilities also received a QRP penalty as well. This year will be even more challenging than the last. October 1, 2019 ushers in the new Medicare A Patient-Driven Payment Model (PDPM). Our presentation will be offering strategies for successfully implementing PDPM, approaches to improving your rehospitalizations, and methods for improving your IMPACT act quality measures in your facility.
