The New PEPPER Made Simple

SAVE THE DATE - JULY 10, 2014, 12:15 PM 

LeadingAge Maryland no-cost Webinar 

A key to survival in today's environment is a commitment to continuous quality improvement and transparency. You need adequate tools and systems to find internal issues and improve them. The PEPPER reports provide valuable insight not only into the individual operations of a SNF, but also comparative government-generated data at the state, regional and national levels. Many organizations lack a thorough understanding of how best to use their PEPPER reports. During this webinar, we will explain how to analyze PEPPER reports and evaluate your therapy data in comparison to other SNFs to better assess strengths and weaknesses and to minimize risk. We will also discuss how to utilize PEPPER reports to implement more robust review of therapy procedures and improve quality of care.
