Testimonials

 

The figures don’t lie and my cash flow has improved since implementing DART Chart.

“When I was first approached by Catholic Health East about investing in DART Chart, I was very skeptical. I was sure from my past experience beginning with the 1999 implementation of the Prospective Payment System, (PPS) and the experience of my current Medicare team, the high percentage of A’s was due to high functioning patients and not the ADL documentation. Reluctantly, I agreed and made the investment. As the data demonstrates, that decision was one of the best ones I have made since becoming President & CEO of Providence Health Care, Inc. The major difference between DART Chart and our former ADL tracking program is the structure and wording of the ADL questions for the CNAs to complete and moving to the end of the shift documentation. I have seen a reduction in the RU and RV A’s and an increase in the RU and RV B’s and C’s. The figures don’t lie and my cash flow had improved since implementing DART Chart.

– Gerald Dutton, MS NHA, President & CEO Providence Health Care Inc.

…a direct impact on our bottom line as well as resident satisfaction.

Since the implementation of the DART Chart system in our facility we have experienced a dramatic improvement in our ability to accurately capture ADL data for our skilled and long-term care residents. Not only has this helped us improve the quality of the care we provide but we have seen our length of stay for skilled patient’s increase appropriately. Discharge planning is more detailed and resident specific. The end result is we help to avoid post discharge hospital readmissions which are costly for all concerned.

The DART Chart system allows us to ask appropriate questions at all phases of a resident’s stay. The clinical team can now take credit for all the care they provide on any given shift. With improved ability to monitor each patient’s treatment plan we can now RUG every rehab patient at their optimal level. This has a direct impact on our bottom line as well as resident satisfaction. Being able to track rehab treatment daily and view the financial impact of the dates we select has proven invaluable. DART Chart has brought us a new level of communication and efficiency to each resident’s care plan.

– Kevin O’Connell, PT, MBA, Campus Administrator, Geer Corporation

…it really is that simple.

DART has helped us capture more accurate assessment of the ADLs increasing our RUGs score and when audited we can produce the MDS Trio to support the coding of the MDS…it really is that simple. I just know records have been requested for supporting documentation and the MDS Trio provides that supporting documentation needed to validate what was billed.
