I have found the Resource Planner to be an invaluable tool under PDGM. We are able to visualize immediately the operational and financial impact of discipline frequency and duration. The slowest discipline to change has been therapy as they still try to incorporate all of their visits into the first 30-days. This has been an on-going work in progress, but your planner helps us catch these up front and we see our therapists beginning to understand and conform. Additionally, the ability to identify LUPA thresholds in each billing unit is essential and your Resource Planner identifies this for every patient encounter!
I wanted to take a moment to thank Innovative Financial Solutions for their wonderful tool, the Home Health Care Resource Planner. Indiana University Health Home Care has been using this financial tool for roughly 2 years and with great success. The Resource Planner has helped clinicians and supervisors alike to better understand the Prospective Payment system, and to respond proactively with delivery of care. At Indiana University Health Homecare, the needs of the patient will always come first and the Resource Planner has been a tremendous asset in allowing us to meet these needs in the most efficient, effective way. The Resource Planner enables us to “visualize” the plan of care, and how that plan aligns with our commitment to care as well as our financial goals.
In a world with ever changing Medicare regulations and cuts, we at Indiana University Health Home Care are lucky to have the Home Health Care Resource Planner to help us maintain a strong and healthy bottom line. Thank you again for supplying such a beneficial and useful tool!
