CEO Steven Scott Looks Ahead to 2019 – PDPM & More

 

Thank you PointRight clients, partners and friends for a great 2018. It’s been quite a year for our industry to say the least. Wild fires in California turned hero care-givers into hero rescuers, CMS’ continued its commitment to value-based reimbursement with the announcement of PDPM and Five Star turned 10.

Looking to 2019, PointRight is preparing our clients to not only survive, but thrive, in the changes ahead. With PDPM, for example, we’re leveraging our unique expertise in MDS accuracy to help SNFs ensure that their transitions to this new payment are successful. Our multi-prong approach includes:

  • showing SNFs the potential impact of PDPM on revenue, drivers of reimbursement, and utilization to help them plan and prepare for changes to critical clinical and business processes;
  • equipping SNFs to leverage PointRight solutions for ‘practice tests’ that offer real world learning opportunities with this new payment model;
  • offering practical PDPM guidance through our seven-part CEU Education Series webinars;
  • speaking at marquee industry events as part of our commitment to leading the market conversation on PDPM and important related topics.

If you are a PointRight client and would like to learn more about any of our PDPM initiatives, please reach out directly to your Account Executive or email us at support@pointright.com. We will also be hosting a product webinar in January to share more details about our PDPM activities including important enhancements to PointRight solutions.

In 2019, we’ll also be announcing some exciting updates to our analytics solutions that address participating in a Preferred Provider Network and enhanced Care Management. I look forward to sharing more information on these initiatives soon.

Best wishes for the New Year,
