After seeing promising preliminary results, our customer Amedisys is expanding a pilot program that aims to lower overall costs through fewer readmissions. The outcomes from the pilot and future results from the program will be evaluated against Strategic Healthcare Programs' (SHP) benchmark data on 3 metrics: hospital readmission rates, functional status of the patient and shortness of breath.
I'm interested in learning how your agency has responded to the change.
We're pleased to announce that the SHP Real-time Home Health Compare report will be right in synch with the CMS changes.
This dilemma paints agencies into a corner, and they answer 'no' to M1910 on OASIS, thus resulting in poor public scores.
If you have an outside data management company such as Strategic Healthcare Programs (SHP) and you have been analyzing your process measure data, good for you.
