As LTPAC providers struggle to absorb further reductions in Medicare funding,finding alternative ways to lower cost while continuing to deliver quality care will be vital. Technology plays an important role in ensuring cost efficiencies and the delivery of quality care. EMR technology solutions for LTPAC provide the opportunity to increase quality of care and productivity while decreasing a facility’s operating costs and reporting errors. Fully integrated EMR solutions make it possible for facilities to streamline business processes and care delivery in a cost effective way and potentially mitigate any negative impact from further Medicare cuts.
