Improved patient care, cost management and reduced readmission rates.
Post-acute care and skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) can benefit tremendously from telehealth. CMS is enacting more changes to which healthcare facilities must adapt. Just as telehealth technologies were used in the past to help SNFs improve patient care and reduce costs, they can be adopted to meet current and future regulations.
Since the Medicare Patient-Driven Payment Model (PDPM) went into play on October 1, 2019, physician use of virtual visits doubled from only 14% in 2016 to 28% in 2019, according to HealthLeaders. There was a clear push to utilize telehealth with the new CMS system in place. For SNFs in particular, the ability to directly connect with doctors and specialists over telehealth makes it easier to save money, improve care for high-risk patients and enhance the experience for everyone involved in the care continuum.

Improved patient outcomes by treating patients in place
Patients and in-facility staff have the opportunity to consult with a remote specialists via telemedicine, to treat chronic conditions at the critical times when their conditions might flare. Not only does this keep resident patients within the facility, it also reduces the risk of infections or complications from traveling to another location for care.
