Updates to discharge recommendations in rehab notes
Please note the following change, to go into effect July 26.
What will change?
From the current Epic list of discharge recommendations available to rehab: “Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF)” will change to “High-Frequency Therapy” and “Home Health” will change to “Intermittent Frequency Services.”
Why are we making this change?
Shifting from a location recommendation to a clinical service recommendation will allow for more flexibility with discharge planning and support care management, especially when discharge plans have to shift due to payor restrictions, social circumstances, or other factors. Additionally, as we focus on delivering value in health care, there are opportunities to provide greater intensity clinical services in the home and thereby manage the total cost of care.
How will this impact me?
It should not dramatically change your practice. As always, the care management and rehab teams will support you to find the most appropriate discharge plan for your patient.
If you have questions, please reach out to Nick Kashey, MD, interim Vice President, Population Health, and Medical Director, Legacy Health Partners.
