Quickly improve 5-Star and quality ratings with new QM analytics [Video]

Ken BellClient News, Skilled Nursing4 Comments

We’re excited to announce our new Quality Measures module within SimpleAnalyzer™. Over a year in development, the SimpleAnalyzer QM module is a new kind of quality analytics tool — one designed to help you quickly increase overall quality at your organization, including 5-Star and other industry quality ratings.

Unlike static CMS CASPER data, which typically lags 1-2 quarters behind, the SimpleAnalyzer QM module uses dynamic, real-time MDS 3.0 analytics that include data from your latest MDS assessments transmitted through SimpleLTC.

The new functionality will be released for all current SimpleAnalyzer users within the next two weeks. For a quick introduction to the new QM module, please watch the video above.

What you can do with the QM module

  • Quickly find actionable data to increase 5-Star ratings and overall quality
  • View QM data and quality scores across one or multiple facilities
  • View up-to-the-minute MDS QM data, without the typical lag time of CMS CASPER reports
  • See predicted QM data for the quarters ahead, based on your latest MDS assessments transmitted via SimpleLTC
  • See your data in a dynamic, exportable, flexible format, rather than in static CASPER report PDFs
  • Create your own real-time ad-hoc reports
  • Use one one simple, elegant dashboard for all of your facilities

How we developed it

SimpleLTC has provided simple CASPER report access and management for years, but customers told us they needed more. They wanted to see their CASPER data — specifically QM and 5-Star data — in a more real-time format that could be easily exported to other systems, like Excel spreadsheets or internal business intelligence databases.

Our goal was to give customers a new kind of QM tool that can quickly and efficiently target the specific elements that affect your 5-Star rating. We wanted it provide enough detail and functionality that you can use it take proactive action to increase overall quality.

To develop the specific metrics, we worked closely with a number of large SNF organizations and industry experts. Leveraging their expertise, we targeted a wide range of real-world scenarios that directly affect both QMs and 5-Star ratings, and built them into the product in a visual way. We then took the product back to our customers for them to review and test.

The goal was to create a QM analytics tool that’s both powerful yet still simple and  easy to use. Initial customer feedback has been extremely positive.
