Manalapan, New Jersey – February 7th, 2024 – Today, z.PAX proudly announces the launch of PDPM-Connect for Skilled Nursing Facilities, a software solution that improves Medicare Part A revenue, enhances regulatory-compliance, and sets new standards for Minimum Data Set efficiency. PDPM-Connect, the second application within the z.Apps ecosystem, blends consulting and technology, the hallmark of Zimmet Healthcare’s ConsulTech initiative.
PDPM-Connect expresses decades of subject matter expertise through software that evolves in-step with government payment changes. Rooted in compliance, our “digital agent” considers the latest regulatory guidance as it processes Electronic Medical Record (EMR) entries. PDPM-Connect identifies actionable reimbursement-drivers and presents supporting documentation to the MDS Coordinator for verification. The story continues, as PDPM-Connect continues to search for Interim Payment Assessments (IPAs) that are so often missed. As reported by Zimmet Healthcare, IPAs increase reimbursement by $94/day on average, yet only a fraction are initiated. PDPM-Connect’s IPA-Watch functionality ensures its users never miss another IPA opportunity. Meanwhile, Minimum Data Set (MDS) completion time is reduced by up to 50%, making PDPM-Connect a gamechanger in the ongoing SNF staffing struggle.
Other applications may claim to perform similar functions, but PDPM-Connect represents a new product-class of consulting-enhanced reimbursement technology that puts compliance first. PDPM-Connect is not just software – our industry-leading reimbursement experts are always available to offer PDPM insights.
When software doesn’t work, you call tech support. When software findings don’t seem right, you call consultants. PDPM-Connect provides the best of both worlds. PDPM-Connect is ConsulTech.
Key Features of PDPM-Connect:
- Digital Agent: Significantly reduces time required for MDS completion and administration.
- EMR-Based Clinical Alerts: Proactively identifies reimbursement-drivers before the initial Medicare assessment.
- IPA-Watch: Continuously monitors the EMR, notifying of any clinical changes that support an IPA.
- Audit Alerts: Highlights case-mix capture discrepancies against documentation within the medical record.
- All-Component Awareness: PDPM-Connect covers Nursing, PT/OT, SLP, and NTA reimbursement drivers.
PDPM-Connect is designed for Medicare reimbursement management. It joins CMI-Connect, the only state-specific solution for the latest Medicaid case-mix payment systems. Connect’s user-friendly software improves productivity and compliantly enhances revenue for Skilled Nursing Facilities.
