Latest Your Resident Profile Released on LTC Trend Tracker

Michael Leitson

On Tuesday, February 25 the first semi-annual edition of Your Resident Profile for 2020 was released for skilled nursing members.

This edition includes resident days and episodes for clinical conditions, such as diabetes and Schizophrenia, as well as acuity, such as IV feeding and ventilator use. Facilities can monitor change over time with data from two timeframes, October 2017 – September 2018 and October 2018 – September 2019. All data is based off MDS assessments.

Use Your Resident Profile to Update Your Facility Assessment

The facility assessment is a Phase 2 requirement of participation by CMS to receive Medicare reimbursements.

Many members use their Resident Profile from LTC Trend Tracker to complete the Facility Assessment Tool developed by the Quality Improvement Organizations (QIOs) and thus meet CMS’s requirement.

For more on the elements of the facility assessment requirements, check out this ahcancalED webinar.
