Description Biography

The give and take continue in inpatient rehabilitation facilities (IRFs) constantly working to keep up with changes in reimbursement, quality reporting, documentation requirements, and an aggressive auditing environment. With the recent removal of Functional Independence Measure (FIMTM) elements from the IRF Patient Assessment Instrument (IRF-PAI) document and the transition to payment based on case mix groups (CMGs), that are assigned based on Quality Indicators, IRFs are reporting challenges in changing provider behaviors in documenting to support the required motor score elements.

Moreover, IRFs are preparing for added Quality Indicator data collection along with assessing how the required collection of data is related to social determinants of health (SDoH). And, in addition to current and looming changes, there's the ever-present scrutiny of multiple audit programs requiring response and often appeal of audit decisions.
