Trends in special medicare payments and service utilization for rural areas in the 1990s( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report analyzes special payments that Medicare has been making to rural providers. These special payments are intended to support the rural health care infrastructure to help ensure access to care for Medicare beneficiaries. The research provides a comprehensive overview of these payments, including documentation of the supply of providers, trends in payments, and Medicare costs per beneficiary. Four types of special payments were examined: (1) payments to sole community hospitals, Medicare-dependent hospitals, and rural referral centers; (2) reimbursements to rural health clinics and federally qualified health centers; (3) bonus payments to physicians in rural health professional shortage areas; and (4) capitation payments in rural counties

Final report on assessment instruments for prospective payment system by Joan Buchanan( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These appendices accompany a report that evaluates alternative assessment tools for use in a prospective payment system (PPS) for inpatient rehabilitation facilities. They include samples of study forms and instructions; descriptions of measures; recruitment and participation letters; characteristics of participating facilities; sample study newsletters; and sampling protocols. The PPS was designed for use with the Functional Independence Measure. Policymakers hoped to substitute a new, more comprehensive, multipurpose assessment instrument, the Minimum Data Set-Post-Acute Care (MDS-PAC). This study compares the potential effects of this substitution. The MDS-PAC is a comprehensive data collection tool, with over 300 items, including sociodemographic information, pre-admission history, advance directives, cognitive and communication patterns, mood and behavior patterns, functional status, bladder/bowel management, diagnoses, medical complexities, pain status, oral/nutritional status, procedures/services, functional prognosis, and resources for discharge. To use the MDS-PAC in the new payment system, researchers needed a way to create a FIM-like motor score and a FIM-like cognitive score. A proposed translation was refined and evaluated. The goal of the report was to determine whether the planned substitution of the MDS-PAC for the FIM in the proposed inpatient rehabilitation hospital prospective payment system would adversely affect system performance, patients, or hospitals

CMS Innovation Center Health Care Innovation Awards : evaluation plan by Sandra H Berry( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation within the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has funded 108 Health Care Innovation Awards, funded through the Affordable Care Act, for applicants who proposed compelling new models of service delivery or payment improvements that promise to deliver better health, better health care, and lower costs through improved quality of care for Medicare, Medicaid, and Children⁰́₉s Health Insurance Program enrollees. CMS is also interested in learning how new models would affect subpopulations of beneficiaries (e.g., those eligible for Medicare and Medicaid and complex patients) who have unique characteristics or health care needs that could be related to poor outcomes. In addition, the initiative seeks to identify new models of workforce development and deployment, as well as models that can be rapidly deployed and have the promise of sustainability. This report describes a strategy for evaluating the results. The goal for the evaluation design process is to create standardized approaches for answering key questions that can be customized to similar groups of awardees and that allow for rapid and comparable assessment across awardees. The evaluation plan envisions that data collection and analysis will be carried out on three levels: at the level of the individual awardee, at the level of the awardee grouping, and as a summary evaluation that includes all awardees. Key dimensions for the evaluation framework include implementation effectiveness, program effectiveness, workforce issues, impact on priority populations, and context. The ultimate goal is to identify strategies that can be employed widely to lower cost while improving care
National evaluation of the demonstration to improve the recruitment and retention of the direct service community workforce( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Direct service workers (DSWs) provide personal care or nonmedical services to individuals who need assistance with activities of daily living. Direct service work is very physically and emotionally demanding, and pay for DSWs is too low to attract a stable and sufficiently trained pool of workers that is adequate for the needs of the vulnerable individuals who require their assistance. To help address this issue, in 2003-2004 the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) awarded ten grants under the Demonstration to Improve the Direct Service Community Workforce; these grants funded initiatives to improve the recruitment and retention among DSWs. Funded initiatives included such efforts as increasing access to health care, training, mentoring, recognition, worker registries, and marketing campaigns. In 2005, CMS funded a national evaluation, by a consortium led by the RAND Corporation, to study the implementation and outcomes of the ten funded initiatives. As part of this evaluation, researchers reviewed grantees' records, interviewed project stakeholders, conducted site visits, and surveyed direct service agencies, DSWs, and consumers. In this volume, the authors present their findings on the implementation and outcomes from the ten grantees
Strategies and priorities for information technology at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services by National Research Council (U.S.)( )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is the agency in the Department of Health and Human Services responsible for providing health coverage for seniors and people with disabilities, for limited-income individuals and families, and for children--totaling almost 100 million beneficiaries. The agency's core mission was established more than four decades ago with a mandate to focus on the prompt payment of claims, which now total more than 1.2 billion annually. With CMS's mission expanding from its original focus on prompt claims payment come new requirements for the agency's information technology (IT) systems. Strategies and Priorities for Information Technology at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services reviews CMS plans for its IT capabilities in light of these challenges and to make recommendations to CMS on how its business processes, practices, and information systems can best be developed to meet today's and tomorrow's demands. The report's recommendations and conclusions offered cluster around the following themes: (1) the need for a comprehensive strategic technology plan; (2) the application of an appropriate metamethodology to guide an iterative, incremental, and phased transition of business and information systems; (3) the criticality of IT to high-level strategic planning and its implications for CMS's internal organization and culture; and (4) the increasing importance of data and analytical efforts to stakeholders inside and outside CMS. Given the complexity of CMS's IT systems, there will be no simple solution. Although external contractors and advisory organizations will play important roles, CMS needs to assert well-informed technical and strategic leadership. The report argues that the only way for CMS to succeed in these efforts is for the agency, with its stakeholders and Congress, to recognize resolutely that action must be taken, to begin the needed cultural and organizational transformations, and to develop the appropriate internal expertise to lead the initiative with a comprehensive, incremental, iterative, and integrated approach that effectively and strategically integrates business requirements and IT capabilities."--Publisher's description
Analyses for the initial implementation of the inpatient rehabilitation facility prospective payment system( )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the Balanced Budget Act of 1997, Congress mandated that the Health Care Financing Administration (HCFA) implement a Prospective Payment System (PPS) for inpatient rehabilitation under Medicare. This new PPS was implemented beginning on January 1, 2002. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS, the successor agency to HCFA) issued the final rule governing the PPS on August 7, 2001. This report describes the research that RAND performed to support HCFA's efforts to design, develop, and implement this PPS. It presents recommendations concerning the payment system and discusses our plans for further research on the monitoring and refinement of the PPS. The initial design of the system was first presented in a Notice of Proposed Rule Making (NPRM) (HCFA, 2000). Our interim report, Carter et al. (2000), presented analyses that HCFA used to help make its decisions in the NPRM. In this report, we update these analyses using later data. We also improve the analysis and our recommendations to HCFA by taking into account comments made by our Technical Expert Panel in its review of our interim report. This is a report of research. The final decisions made by CMS and the rationale for those decisions may be found in the rule governing the IRF PPS (CMS, 2001). The new PPS applies to rehabilitation hospitals and to distinct rehabilitation units of acute care hospitals, which are excluded from the acute care PPS. To qualify for such exclusion, rehabilitation facilities must meet two conditions. First, Medicare patients must receive intensive therapy (generally at least three hours per day). Second, 75 percent of each facility's patients must have one of 10 specified problems related to neurological or musculoskeletal disorders or burns. We call this PPS the Inpatient Rehabilitation Facility PPS, or IRF PPS
