Managing rehabilitation care in a hospital environment creates many challenges not seen in traditional acute care. You’re overseeing a completely different model of care, run under unique compliance guidelines and measured by its own success indicators.
Maximize Your Revenue
CMS IRFPPS reimbursement is determined largely by the IRF-PAI scores collected in the first three days of admission. Unfortunately, even a proven and thoroughly tested scoring process can result in scores that are either inconsistent, inaccurate or both.
Removing subjectivity from the scoring process with the use of MediLinks Inpatient will help improve the accuracy and consistency of your scores. Ultimately, these improvements will lead to appropriate reimbursement and sufficient funds to care for your patients.
