CareAscend provides an overview of all of your facilities 5-star ratings and their geolocation on a color-coded map.
This unique feature provides unprecedented ability to any company leaders such as the Chief Medical Officer, regional medical directors and operational leaders to keep an eye on overall medical director tasks at the company, region or at a facility level.
CareAscend provides user-friendly tools to review, slice/ dice and analyze data to understand correlations between facility quality measures and the role of the medical director.
CareAscend empowers company leaders to guide facility leaders and medical directors to prioritize various tasks to enhance outcomes. For example, a facility that is struggling with high prevalence of antipsychotic medications, the CareAscend can help facilitate medical director’s focus on staff education for a given quarter.
Medical Director Tasks:
The program assures that physician leaders, their administrators and other team members are aligned in regards to facility key needs and focus on agreed upon medical director tasks.
This approach provides ongoing learning to medical directors about their administrative roles in their facilities and organizations.
AMDA (put a link to their web site here), Society of Post-acute Medicine and Long-term Care Medicine validates the key tasks medical directors should be performing in alignment with the Code of Federal Regulations.
The CareAscend application platform simplifies the process of logging medical director administrative tasks on-the go. All tasks are communicated to the facility administrator and other assigned supervisors before they are finalized. Traditionally, medical directors have to rely on clunky paper-based processes to log their tasks. CareAscend provides the luxury of reporting tasks as they are being performed, after they are performed or even scheduling future tasks with timely reminders.
A live tally of tasks keeps medical director and other team members aware of the number of hours performed for the given month so that remaining hours can be planned and utilized for the prioritized areas.
The available tasks are in compliance with the Center for Medicare and Medicaid guidance around the medical director role and have been validated by AMDA (www.paltc.org), the Society of Post-acute Care and Long-term Care Medicine.
CareAscend offers a secure digital platform for prompt communications between facility/ organization administrators, medical director leaders and other assigned team members. It also connects company chief medical officer and other regional directors with team members. All communications are archived for future reference or quality assurance purposes.
CareAscend includes a calendar so that all team members are able to schedule administrative events and assure that all members are notified of upcoming meetings e.g. quality assurance, infections committee, educational activities, etc.
CareAscend allows users to review the performance of their facility/ organizations and compare it to other competitors. The chief medical officers and regional leaders are able to review and compare the task performance of all of their team members across their company. You can compare the tasks performed by 5-star rating facility MDs and also can see which tasks your MDs are performing more.
The CareAscend platform makes it simple for physicians to receive notifications for upcoming educational events offered by AMDA, the Society of Post-acute and Long-term Care Members (www.paltc.org) and other professional associations. Physician leaders are able to review their attended events and accumulated educational credits.
