Five Points to a Successful Post-Acute Care Strategy

Join the conversation at the LeadingAge Annual Meeting and EXPO!

Knowing how to achieve and maintain your community’s Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) rating is paramount to the success of your organization. At Life Care Services®, An LCS Company, optimizing quality outcomes and navigating the CMS Five-Star Rating System are things we do every day. In fact, 90% of the health centers managed by Life Care Services have a 4- or 5-Star rating.

Are you taking an active role in the post-acute evolution? A strong post-acute care strategy will play the most significant role in the care delivery system in the future. Where do you start and how do you deploy a successful strategy for your community?

At Life Care Services, our post-acute care guide to reaching the Stars includes five-points:

  • Occupancy – A sound strategy will positively impact occupancy.
  • Quality – Delivering on quality measures is the one fundamental you can control.
  • Technology – Enterprise connectivity is a fundamental where most communities fall short.
  • Healthcare Network – If you’ve not already partnered with an ACO or MCO, it will be more difficult but not impossible.
  • Navigation – Your community needs someone internally navigating the health of your seniors.
