Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has made Patient Satisfaction a key part of In-Patient Hospital Reimbursement, now paying 30% of Value-Based Purchasing (VBP) for Patient Experience.
Couple this with 20.4 million New Medicaid enrollees over the next decade, “Pain Management” VBP score accounting for more than 3% of Total VBP incentive pay, and it is clear that Quality Pain Management plays a critical role in Hospital Growth and Sustainability.
Pain ConsultTM can provide Quality In-Patient Pain Management to improve your Hospital’s VBP incentive pay, reduce your Hospital’s Average Length-of-Stay, and Decrease your Hospital’s Re-Admission Rate.
