Operational & Clinical Advisory
LW Consulting, Inc. team members are current on issues and trends that are impacting the industries we serve. We can help your organization save valuable time and resources by providing strategic assessment, revision, and monitoring of your current systems.
Additionally, LW Consulting can develop and implement effective strategies to ensure comportment changes in a healthcare system. The goal is for your facility to reach specific, measurable, and attainable outcomes in quality of care and financial gain. While many organizations are eager to find quick solutions to their difficulties, the underlying cause of the problem is not fully understood. Most organizations will rely on the recommendations of experts without learning that the success of the change is an ongoing process. We believe that analysis, measurement and data are key components in providing expert advice and enabling our clients to foster change.
Our team will provide an in-depth review of your organizational structure and the way your system manages information to identify opportunities for improvement. When organizational goals are clear, the system can make decisions based on the changing healthcare environment as well as the organizational status. Analyzing operations is not the same for all businesses. We believe in tailoring our services to deliver cost effective services in key areas that will have the greatest positive impact.
Effective October 1, 2019, the Patient-Driven Payment Model (PDPM) is the Prospective Payment System (PPS) used in skilled nursing for classifying patients in a Part A stay. The Patient-Driven Groupings Model (PDGM) became effective on January 1, 2020, which is a new case-mix classification model for home health.
