An effective respiratory program needs to include a system of accountability that encourages all patients to be assessed for respiratory needs upon admission and throughout their stay. Today, most SNFs only consider patients as candidates when they are admitted with pre-existing orders for nebulizer treatments— thus overlooking underutilized modalities such as deep breathing exercises, incentive spirometry and cough therapy. Additionally, MDS coding criteria requires therapy be administered for at least 15-minutes per day for 7-consecutive days, leaving no margin for error. DynamicRT’s remote respiratory therapists continuously monitor your population and submit recommendations when a patient has a qualifying condition. When an order is approved, we monitor the daily administration to ensure constant compliance with MDS coding criteria. Daily alerts are sent if compliance is not achieved to prompt immediate corrections. Monthly reports consolidate patient demographics, nursing compliance, and Medicare revenue data— enabling actions to be taken before a material impact is felt on outcomes and revenue. Integrate with DynamicRT today to start empowering your nursing team to capture thousands more in revenue.
