Rolling Plains Memorial Hospital achieved a substantial $438,000 reimbursement improvement in just 3 months by taking advantage of TruBridge’s Clinical Documentation Improvement (CDI) Training. Rolling Plains Memorial Hospital is an 85 bed community hospital located in Sweetwater, TX with annual revenue of $42 million. As the executives at this facility noticed a discrepancy in patients’ charts and the level of care the patients received, they knew something needed to change. TruBridge was able to make a dramatic difference in clinical documentation and capture the earned reimbursements.
Truven Health Analytics™ evaluated the extent to which community need— a measure of the underlying economic and social factors that affect the overall health of a community, including income, cultural/language barriers, education, insurance and housing—is associated with elevated rates of preventable hospitalizations or an increased risk of hospitalization believed to be preventable with quality ambulatory care. The results of this investigation reveal a modest but statistically significant association between community need and an increased risk of hospitalizations that are believed to be preventable with good-quality ambulatory care.
In the rough-and-tumble world of community and rural hospitals, the phrase “innovate or get left behind” is no longer a scary suggestion thrown out by expensive consultants, but a daily reality for CEOs. Rocked by reform and big changes in areas including financing, care models, and population trends, chief executives are getting used to making bold leadership decisions on a regular basis.
