SANTA BARBARA, Calif., June 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Strategic Healthcare Programs (SHP), a leading provider of data analytics and benchmarking to post-acute care providers, is releasing its next generation Scorecard Report Suite completely re-engineered to more than triple the capability and features of its current reporting solution. SHP's Scorecards have always provided reliable and actionable insights to its customers, but the new Scorecard Report Suite delivers much more.
"We developed the new Scorecard Report Suite so that our customers can make better business decisions and improve their performance more quickly," said Rob Paulsson, President of SHP. With the industry focus on quality of patient care, home health agencies must quickly identify their top performers, and staff who might need additional education to improve their patient outcomes. Additionally, the agencies need to be able to demonstrate their value proposition regarding quality of care outcomes to their referral sources.
SHP pioneered home health clinician scorecards a decade ago. With this new suite, the company takes an already strong platform and triples its functionality and types of actionable data to further support its customers' needs for more performance insights. "With our improved solution, our customers can look at every CMS publicly-reported quality measure, including HHCAHPS scores," emphasized Zeb Clayton, Vice President of Customer Services at SHP. SHP clients can now obtain scorecards by clinician, case manager, team, provider, referral source, primary diagnosis group, primary payer and more. This capability provides a wide-ranging look into performance improvement opportunities.
With the launch of the new Scorecard Suite, SHP customers can choose to utilize either Patient Source or Staff Performance reports. The Patient Source view provides a detailed and comprehensive look at all quality of patient care outcomes to share with referral sources. With changing reimbursement models, referral sources are facing numerous value-based initiatives – from ACOs to bundled payments. Home health agencies can now share results and open a dialogue by bringing SHP performance reports to key referral sources. With Primary Payer as a new breakout group, payer-based scorecards can be used to track and share agency performance under new risk-based insurance programs.
The Patient Source reports can also be run by primary diagnosis group for example "Hips and Knees". Under the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) Bundled Payment for Care Initiative (BPCI) and Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CJR) demonstrations, tracking quality for these specific diagnoses can encourage providers to work together to improve quality and coordination of care from initial hospitalization to the end of care. Post-acute care providers can use SHP Scorecard reports for these diagnoses to manage performance and share outcome results.
SHP's popular Staff Performance reports now deliver a greatly increased range of measures. Examples include a full range of hospitalization metrics and a new proprietary, composite quality score to easily organize agencies by overall performance in real-time and take action on those requiring improvement.
