Post-Acute Care: Negating The Constant Challenges

Let's face it - post-acute care facilities are always coping with significant challenges: MDS compliance, quality of care measurements, electronic health record, reimbursement holes, risk management, you name it.

DURHAM, N.C., March 10, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Considering the ever-expanding life span of Americans, quality and compliance in post-acute care services are becoming fundamental for post-acute care facilities, as well as patients who require assisted-living services or who are recovering from a major health condition.

In all this, it is imperative for them to keep their facility updated about the Feds newest compliance policies and traps.
