Consulting companies launch 'Five-Star Accelerator'
PointRight and Pathway Health have launched the Five-Star Accelerator. It is designed to help skilled nursing facilities reach higher ratings on the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services' Five-Star Quality Rating System.
“Understanding what is needed to achieve a five-star rating, and knowing how to maintain that rating once you get there is not easy, and we believe the Five-Star Accelerator is the solution to fill this critical void by enabling providers to find the fastest and most effective path to five-star success,” said PointRight CEO Steven Scott.
The Five-Star Accelerator is offered exclusively through McKesson Medical-Surgical. It involves PointRight's web-based Five-Star FastTrack™ solution with Pathway Health consulting. SNF providers can evaluate existing performance, such as survey, quality measures and staffing.
“We are pleased to team up with PointRight to support today's providers in their efforts to deliver quality outcomes in the new era of healthcare reform and expectations,” said Pathway Health CEO Peter B. Schuna.
