RESTORE's Solution for PDPM

RESTORE helps facilities & therapy practitioners create more practice opportunities, collect meaningful data, and adjust therapy protocols according to patient progress. We make it easy to connect care team members with patient goals to maximize therapy processes in the PDPM economy.

More Practice Opportunities

The added flexibility of the value-based model could be both freeing and challenging for providers. For example, to achieve the same rehabilitation results, SNFs may potentially decrease their OT/PT hours by 30%.  RESTORE promises more practice opportunities that are engaging, measurable, and data-driven. Similarly, we aim to extend the therapist’s mission beyond the limited time they have with each patient. The resident first begins practice on the RESTORE platform with their therapist in the gym and then continues to practice independently in their room.  Additionally, our online platform allows for any time, anywhere practice to accelerate skill-building. 

Measurement Tools

We empower therapists to address their patients' needs while supporting the continuum of care.  In considering time, productivity, and documentation constraints, we designed progress & activity tracking that measures for you! Easy-to-read reports are found right at your fingertips and are simple to share with your patient, their family, and all members of the care team. The inclusion of credible and objective outcome measures allows therapists to create patient-centered sessions & monitor client advancement at every stage.

Team Collaboration

Collaboration is essential post-PDPM, and we empower therapists as they lead the process of connecting the care team to the patient’s needs. First, the therapist designs sessions for patients to practice with other team members in the facility and then designates who can log in to play. RESTORE allows team members to monitor and adjust plans according to the patient’s progress at each stage of their treatment. Our skill-building activities are designed to engage everyone who works with the resident - therapists, nurses, aides, and family members. Allowing teams to share clients’ goals, sessions, and data across disciplines ensures care is consistent.

Group Therapy

With our unlimited subscription model, therapists can set up & engage multiple players on multiple devices at a single time! Accessible on any WiFi enabled Chromebook, PC, or Mac computer RESTORE turns every device into a powerful skill-building therapy platform, meaning practitioners won’t have to purchase additional hardware. 

Carryover of Practice

We understand the importance of a support system throughout recovery. Therapists can train family members on the RESTORE platform to promote the patient’s continued success. Post-discharge, users can play the sessions specifically designed for them at home. Continued use will establish the carryover of practice and help reduce readmission rates.

We will help you measure your outcomes, improve patient compliance & participation in their care, and maximize reimbursement rates to protect your bottom-line. Contact us to schedule your free demo, info@restoreskills.com or (234) 303-0723!

Our observation of the new PDPM reimbursement structure

The transition from a volume-based to a value-based mindset is critical for the long term balance of our healthcare system. The way we see it, PDPM is another step in the right direction for CMS and the future of therapy services.

CMS Administrator, Seema Verma, stated: “We envision all elements of CMS’ healthcare delivery system working to reward value over volume and decisively focus on patients receiving quality care from their Medicare benefits.” As a result of this shift, unless they adopt a new approach, providers will be expected to achieve the same rehabilitation results while decreasing their OT/PT hours by 30%. Failure to do so means the same patient outcomes will result in a loss of compliance with payers.

Moving forward, CMS says practitioners must deliver patient-centered care. Therefore, SNFs should focus on treatments that address the care their residents genuinely need. For instance, facilities should invest in therapy treatments that are both designed and backed by data because we know that such interventions lead to more favorable results. In the PDPM economy, data-driven tools are the key to producing optimal clinical outcomes. 

These changes, as exciting and promising as they are, require planning and interdisciplinary communication. Above all, both nursing and therapy goals should be functionally focused, specific to the patient’s barriers to discharge, and uniformly addressed. Preparing for PDPM necessitates a system such as RESTORE.
