Post-Acute Care providers continue to face regulatory uncertainty. The shift to value-based care in the post-acute care segment is proceeding however, it appears that designing a unified, equitable, and appropriate PAC payment system is a bit more challenging than expected. Questions of payment incentives based upon reporting factors under a provider’s control may be vulnerable to misreporting.
Proposed legislation continues to emphasize the monitoring and reporting of standardized patient assessment data elements (SPADEs) across all patients. The addition of these SPADEs to the IRF-Patient Assessment Instrument (IRF-PAI) address improvement in coordination of care and facilitate communication between PAC providers and other members of the healthcare community.
