One of the challenges that healthcare organizations like long-term care facilities face is having to comply with growing regulatory and legal requirements. When it comes to data, you not only have to provide information quickly, but also accurately. Are your current solutions providing intelligent data?
Some of the legal requirements revolve around how and when data is collected and submitted to agencies such as the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), as well as the Payroll-Based Journal Reporting requirement that long-term care facilities electronically submit direct care staffing information, quarterly, on paid direct patient care hours. This requires system integration with scheduling and time tracking.
However, regulatory compliance goes beyond data and can include organizational policies, procedures and processes. Data sourced from different applications, without integration, threatens compliance.
