Abstract
THIS PROJECT WILL TEST AND EVALUATE THE FEASIBILITY OF AN ONLINE DISCHARGE-PLANNING RESOURCE SYSTEM LISTING INFORMATION ON NURSING HOME PROVIDERS. THE SYSTEM WILL PROVIDE AUTOMATED RETRIEVAL CAPABILITIES TO HOSPITAL-BASED DISCHARGE PLANNERS, WHO WILL BE ABLE TO IDENTIFY DISCHARGE PLACEMENT ALTERNATIVES WITH GREATER EFFICIENCY. THE SYSTEM WILL PERMIT DISCHARGE PLANNERS TO HAVE IMMEDIATE ACCESS TO INFORMATION REGARDING NURSING HOME FACILITIES. BED AVAILABILITY AS WELL AS FACILITY CHARACTERISTICS WILL BE MAINTAINED ONLINE. TECHNIQUES FOR UPDATING AND MAINTAINING THIS DATABASE OF INFORMATION THAT IS CONSTANTLY CHANGING WILL BE STUDIED AND EVALUATED. THE PLACEMENT RESOURCE SYSTEM WILL BE A COMMERCIALLY VIABLE PRODUCT. ACUTE-CARE HOSPITALS WILL BENEFIT FROM THE SYSTEM,AS IT WILL HELP PROMOTE MORE TIMELY AND APPROPRIATE DISCHARGE TO NONACUTE SETTINGS. A REDUCTION IN UNNECESSARY ACUTE HOSPITAL DAYS WILL DIRECTLY BENEFIT HOSPITALS UNDER PROSPECTIVE PAYMENT REIMBURSEMENT FORMULAS. NURSING HOMES WILL BENEFIT FROM A SYSTEM THAT WILL IMMEDIATELY NOTIFY HOSPITALS OF AVAILABLE NURSING HOME BEDS.
