It also compares the hospital length of stay with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) geometric length of stay (GMLOS) for DRGs that are commonly treated in PAC settings, and it measures how hospital readmission rates stack up against CMS targets.
Another benefit of this ongoing analysis is that, by identifying the highest-volume of MS-DRGs that result in SNF placement--and these often rack up excessive costs in the hospital by surpassing the national GMLOS benchmark for SNF-bound length of stays--an opportunity exists for PAC operators to collaborate with hospitals to develop a series of clinical care pathways and protocols.
