Outcome Measures & PDPM

Maximizing results and outcomes

Today, more than ever, clinical outcomes will influence the decisions of our partners in care; physicians, hospitals, accountability organizations and most importantly, our patients.  One of our fundamental deliverables is our ability to track and monitor the quality of our services through clinical outcomes.  As the significance of outcomes becomes increasingly relevant in a value-based healthcare system, our focus on clinical outcomes allows us to ensure our patients get the very best from our clinicians and provide our partners with confidence in our service. 

PTS has been preparing for the transition from volume to value for a number of years.  We are confident that our collaborative preparation with our partners will lead to success under PDPM.  We remain committed to ongoing positive clinical and financial outcomes and welcome the opportunity to demonstrate our commitment to excellence and value.  PTS has all of the necessary resources in a highly effective, multi-disciplinary regional team and clinical reimbursement specialists (NURSES, MDS COORDINATORS AND THERAPISTS) prepared to operate successfully in a value-based reimbursement system. 

 Our clinical reimbursement specialists meet with our partners, monthly, for strategic plan development, auditing, action plan development and implementation protocols.  Contact us for an Analysis and Discussion.
