For Post Acute Care Facilities
Theoria Medical offers medical directorship services to skilled nursing facilities, assisted living facilities, and independent living facilities. A Theoria physician is the assigned medical director at the facility and also an attending physician constantly involved in the medical management of the facility. The medical director sees all new admissions promptly, completes all appropriate documentation promptly, actively participates in QA, and much more.
Theoria medical directorship encompasses much more than physician services. The Theoria team works together to improve facility workflows, facilitate a productive collaboration between the nursing staff and medical staff, provide nursing staff education, and provide superior care with a standardized process.
Further, Theoria works closely with the hospital systems in the region to outline our initiatives and highlight how we are improving resident care in your facilities. We will set up meetings with hospital leadership to discuss a collaboration between Theoria, the facility, and the hospital to improve transition of care and much more.
Theoria providers are highly trained clinicians particularly skilled in post-acute care. All providers undergo a rigorous training program that includes compliance with applicable regulations that post-acute care facilities are subject to.
With the Theoria model, a physician assistant or nurse practitioner rounds at the facility 5-7 days per week, in addition to the medical director's presence in the building. There is 24/7 constant availability of a provider for the nursing staff to contact. Patients are seen immediately for any acute issues, and our providers coordinate care effectively between all the members of the patient's care team.
We also offer multiple speciality services that include:
- Pulmonology and Critical Care
- Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation
- Wound Care
Theoria understands the importance of state surveys and applying to all the regulations and guidelines facilities are subject to. We work closely with facilities during and prior to survey time to ensure compliance.
All of our providers undergo comprehensive compliance education that includes guidance on how to appropriately interact with state surveyors. With this, facilities can have peace of mind when a Theoria provider is involved in an investigation or any regulatory matter.
Avoidable Readmission Reduction and Analysis
Theoria Medical directly works to reduce avoidable readmissions through superior medical management and an effective physician model. Theoria providers are constantly involved in resident care to ensure issues are immediately addressed. Theoria's readmission reduction philosophy is based on managing clinically complex resident's issues immediately and effectively to reduce the risk of needing a hospital transfer.
Moreover, we conduct analyses to identify gaps in care that lead to readmissions in addition to general readmission analysis. With our industry partners such as IBM, we will leverage data to create actionable insights that our staff will use to execute strategies to improve resident care and reduce readmissions.
