  • Part 2 Discharge to Community: Creating Seamless Transitions

    Contains 6 Component(s) Recorded On: 09/28/2016

    Part 2 Discharge to Community: Creating Seamless Transitions

    A significant shift we've experienced in our communities relates to discharge to community. Our role is to create seamless transitions that return residents safely home - a departure from our “long stay" roots. As a result, skilled nursing centers are responsible for assisting individuals in improving functional independence and adequately preparing individuals for discharge from the center.Assuring individuals and their families are able to manage care needs after discharge is critical to preventing rehospitalizations.

    Additionally, the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission (MedPAC), the IMPACT Act and changes to the Five-Star Quality Rating System all call for improving and measuring discharges back to the community. Managed care plans, ACOs, and bundled payment models are also looking for high performing partners

    Join Dr. David Gifford and his team of experts, Lynn Chase, , Massachusetts QIO Program Director, Healthcentric Advisorsand Tina Roberts, CNA, Genesis Healthcare who will provide valuable insights on how to provide high quality and seamless service related to discharge to community.

    Special thanks to our sponsor Healthcare Academy

    Learning Objectives:

    • Understand the requirements in connection with making capital improvements to an insured property. Capital improvements can enhance a facility's operational/financial viability but also involve some risk. Learn how communication on such an initiative should flow to assure that all parties' interests are protected.
    • Understand the requirements in connection with taking distributions from the facility's accounts. HUD certainly recognizes that owners/operators have the legitimate expectation of reaping benefits from a facility's successful operation. Since, though, the lender (and ultimately HUD) holds a security interest in the facility, the owners and operators agree to reasonable parameters for distributions that help assure the facility remains viable over the long term. It is important that the owners/operators understand those parameters.
    • Understand the requirements that expenses charged to the facility be reasonable and relate to goods and services actually needed and received by the facility.
    • Understand updated financial reporting and record keeping requirements, including updates on electronic submission processes.
    • Understand the need for, and procedure for obtaining, HUD approval for a change in participants (e.g., a change in owner, operator or management agent).
    • Understand the need for, and the means obtaining, HUD approval for secondary loans on a facility.
    • Understand the need for, and the procedure for obtaining, HUD approval of changes in the licensed beds.
