Contract therapy service provider RehabCare today announced it will begin offering clients Team TSI’s MDS Scrubber Module. The MDS Scrubber allows RehabCare’s clients to not only reduce their MDS rejection rate, but also reduce inconsistencies in coding, assist in the transition from Resource Utilization Groups (RUG) to Patient Driven Payment Model (PDPM), optimize their ICD-10 coding practices, improve financial optimization, be aware of potential adverse events and have a proactive view of potential clinical-related risk areas.
In addition, the MDS Scrubber is seamlessly integrated into the electronic medical record (EMR) software, saving end users hours of manual analysis and information gathering. Each scrub performs a comprehensive analysis of a resident’s current and prior MDSs, allowing users to focus their attention on addressing errors that may reject the assessment if submitted to The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), be aware of the impact to PDPM, assess when a resident may become more at risk for falling, trigger certain Quality Measures and assist with financial optimization related to PDPM as well as ICD-10 coding practices.
This allows RehabCare to allocate more of its resources toward continuing to deliver high-quality therapy services to its skilled nursing home, outpatient facility and assisted and independent living clients in a manner compliant with CMS’ new PDPM framework.
“We are excited to ally with Team TSI (now SHP) and bring to our clients a tool that complements our existing processes to enhance clinical integrity, reduce errors and assure the appropriate reimbursement—all in line with PDPM,” said Glenda Mack, Chief Operations Officer for RehabCare. “This more efficient tool for data analysis and billing allows us to keep our focus on our patients and residents, which is why our clients choose RehabCare in the first place.”
“Our mission is to be innovative, not only in our technology, services and analytics, but also with our alliances. Our new alliance with RehabCare further strengthens our mission to be better together than we are apart,” said Andrew Porch, CEO of Team TSI. “Allying with RehabCare will give us tremendous insight into how we can improve our therapy, rehabilitation and overall outcome improvement model.”
