ATLANTA, April 11, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Excel Health, the leading source for current and complete post-acute outcomes
In addition to the insights provided each quarter, Excel Health has introduced several new tables in this report. The first new metric, Total Cost of Care, is focused on the most prevalent and costly Major Diagnostic Categories (MDCs) based on total claims filed over 12-months. The second new analysis is therapy visits vs. nursing visits per episode of care to provide agencies more visibility into service utilization, which will be scrutinized under the new Patient Driven Grouping Model (PDGM).
"Our hope, by sharing these new insights at the diagnostic category level, is post-acute care providers discover new opportunities to help hospital and physician referral sources significantly impact their total cost of care and prepare for emerging payment models," said Ian Juliano, CEO of Excel Health. "Because we are one of the few companies CMS has deemed as Innovators in its Virtual Research Data Center Program, we can offer this level of visibility to truly help bend the cost curve of healthcare."
Like previous reports, this new report includes the most recent data on home health and hospice admissions, utilization and overall Medicare and Medicare Advantage results. Highlights include:
