Collective Medical helps SNFs avoid COVID-related CMS penalties

 Collective Medical, delivering the leading real-time ADT-based care collaboration network and provider activation, has announced a solution to support skilled nursing facilities in rapidly generating reports to comply with CMS COVID-19 reporting requirements and avoid civil monetary penalties (CMPs).

In late May, CMS released new federal guidelines requiring state participation in a targeted infection-control survey. Facilities found with violations—such as failing to report patients who have tested positive for COVID-19—will face some degree of penalties. Since the implementation of the new requirements, CMS has issued $15 million in CMPs to approximately 3,400 nursing homes.

Collective helps SNFs avoid these CMPs by generating COVID reports on patients within a given facility, so care teams can accurately report positive cases to CMS. By significantly reducing the administrative burden from compiling reports, care teams have more time to focus on caring for COVID patients and preventing the disease from spreading to others in their facility. Additionally, SNFs using Collective are connected to other care teams across the care continuum, to receive real-time, actionable clinical insights to drive informed decision making and ensure care teams know which of their patients need treatment or isolation.

Collective connects patient data across all 50 states and has a long history of supporting post-acute providers in achieving seamless transitions of care and transformative reductions in preventable readmissions.

“With extremely vulnerable patients and little visibility into patient history, SNFs have a difficult challenge ahead of them in effectively managing patients while sending timely reports to CMS,” says Chris Klomp, CEO of Collective Medical. “There isn’t a one size fits all solution to solving this complicated issue, but our hope is that by offering our support to SNFs through rapid reporting and care collaboration capabilities, they’ll be better able to render the safest and best quality care for their patients.”
