The 4th episode of our podcast, Rethink, is now available!
By making patient condition and characteristics the driver of reimbursement — instead of the number of therapy minutes provided to a resident — the Patient-Driven Payment Model coming in October has changed the game for rehabilitation and skilled nursing providers alike. And Aegis Therapies, which is based in Frisco, Texas and provides third-party rehabilitation to more than 500 nursing homes and senior care facilities, has to prove its value to its partners.
Aegis president and CEO Martha Schram thinks there’s opportunity in the new system, even though it will come with new challenges for third-party rehab companies. In her conversation with “Rethink,” Schram talked about the need for new conversations between rehab providers and SNFs, and how rehab has to take outcomes into consideration as the industry prepares for PDPM.
Listen to this episode to hear Schram discuss:
- How third-party rehab has evolved in skilled nursing
- How rehab providers’ infrastructure can still bring value to skilled nursing facilities
- The need for third-party rehab to go beyond therapy delivery under PDPM
- …And much more!
