Deep Dive into Data
HTS operations is diving deep into site-specific data in order to establish additional best practices and clinical pathways based on diagnosis category and functional level. HTS is conducting extensive data analysis by site to analyze the following key items: history, patient population, conditions, principle diagnosis, diagnostic category, functional level, the amount of time spent in therapy as well as their functional outcomes. This data gives sound strategic direction to process improvements and clinical positioning to foster success under PDPM.
Therapy GG Coding Analysis
All HTS therapists are certified in the CMS Care Tool, which is the standardized outcome for mobility and self-care. However, we are auditing our therapists’ GG coding to ensure continued confidence that our therapists are accurate and skilled in GG coding.
Current MDS Data Analysis
HTS is partnering with clients to upload actual 2018 MDS data and provide patient-specific analysis to identify opportunities, trends, education, and auditing needs to ensure accuracy incoding and optimize system processes. This information is valuable as we craft a PDPM strategic plan for each community we serve.
We have collaborated with the nursing and MDS experts from Proactive Medical Review to provide comprehensive training and resources for nursing and other nontherapy departments within the IDT. Together we are offering our Power Through PDPM exclusive training series of monthly trainings to focus on each key component of PDPM preparedness.
