Real Time Medical Systems (Real Time) has joined the Florida Health Care Association (FHCA) as a Preferred Service Corp Partner, empowering FHCA Members with live, actionable data to improve Quality Improvement Program (QIP) outcome measures, reimbursements, and network performance.
FHCA members, through Real Time’s analytics solution, will be able to access live clinical analysis on residents residing in nursing facilities to improve various QIP measures, while reducing avoidable hospital readmissions, managing PDPM reimbursements, establishing infection prevention surveillance, and improving network performance.
“With the intricate link between quality measures and Medicaid reimbursement in Florida, it was essential to provide our members a solution, such as Real Time, to ensure they have the live data needed from their EHR at their fingertips to continue to make advancements in resident care,” said Tom Parker, Senior Director of Reimbursement at FHCA.
Real Time, a leading healthcare interventional analytics company based in Linthicum Heights, Maryland, helps improve the patient care continuum by connecting long-term care facilities, hospitals, ACOs, payers, and affiliated providers in building an integrated preferred care network. Their software helps bridge the gap between a nursing home’s electronic medical records (EMR) software and key clinical leaders, improving performance by reducing avoidable hospital readmissions, managing care coordination efforts, and detecting early warning signs of infectious disease.
Compatible with every major post-acute EHR, Real Time will offer FHCA members a time-efficient solution in tracking and improving QIP outcome measures, including flu and COVID-19 distribution, lower percentage of UTIs, pressure ulcers, falls, incontinence, and the need for assistance with activities of daily living (ADL) – within and across all facilities.
“We are grateful for FHCA’s leadership and forward-thinking advocacy on behalf of our industry and, specifically, seeking solutions that advance its members’ use of their existing EHR data,” said Shane Dearing, Executive Vice President of Growth at Real Time. “It is a true testament to the value Real Time brings in helping nursing facilities and long-term care communities within the state of Florida achieve demonstrable improvement in various areas of their QIP – especially during a time when so many facilities are asked to do more with less.”
