Long-term care rules and regulations have been changing at a fast and furious pace over the past few years. Often, changes can happen so quickly that it can be nearly impossible to train staff and update processes in time to stay current. We have seen this burden play out across all senior living facilities (SNFs), from independent homes to small and large chains alike.
At Richter Healthcare Consultants, our dedicated clinical team makes it their priority to know the ins and outs of all regulatory updates. This includes changes in the Minimum Data Set (MDS), Quality Measure (QM) and Five-Star, Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement (QAPI), Antibiotic Stewardship Program (ASP), and everything in between. Our consultants have a thorough understanding of the time constraints facility and corporate employees face thanks to our years of experience in the long-term care industry.With our unmatched experience and ability to assist SNFs, we decided to put our heads together and create the Corporate Clinical Navigator (CCN) program (previously Virtual Corporate Nurse). Richter Healthcare Consultants’ CCN program is designed to target high-risk areas in the SNF setting and provide proactive mitigation of those risks. In addition, it offers reporting, value-added services, and much more. CCN can be however involved you need it to be, as it is customizable to your facility’s needs.
CCN can be the extra set of hands your facility needs to allow staff to focus on what is most important: the care of your residents. Interested in learning more? Click here for details about each aspect of CCN and why they matter to your SNF.
