SNFS NEED TO STOP THINKING OF THEMSELVES AS TARGETS FOR CUTS
In a health care world of payment evolution and alternative reimbursement models, skilled nursing facilities have been feeling the pinch.
Skilled Nursing News talks with ICS about the pressures SNFs are facing to lower lower length-of-stay from both Medicare Advantage payers and accountable care organizations (ACOs).
"Rather than sitting back and taking that target, or just viewing the acute-care hospital as an antagonist to those savings, try to figure out how to better work with acute-care hospitals in more of a partner-oriented way."
