Being in the school system you are guaranteed to have these days off, which is especially nice when your family lives in a different state. You have these vacations built in so you don’t have to request it off. Two weeks off for the holidays? Yes please! (more…)

Welcome our New Clinical Director: Melissa Jones

Melissa JonesIt is a pleasure to introduce Melissa Jones as our new Clinical Director and head of University Outreach. An experienced Advanced Medical SLP traveler, Melissa has been a tremendous ambassador for the Advanced Medical mission with exceptional performance as a therapist, mentor, and advocate. We are fortunate to bring her over to the “establishment” and let her generous personality reside in one stable zip code. Melissa will be working out of our Denver office, but her new role promises plenty of action on the road as we would be foolish to completely clip her flying wings. Melissa will be attending national conventions, while managing our new grad mentors.  She will also ensure that our clinical support continues to work for the betterment of our clients, patients, and travelers.

Running a Marathon Made me a Better Clinician

image007Recently I was able to run my first marathon. It was the fruition of seven months of training and preparation. To say that when I crossed that finish line I felt a sense of accomplishment is an understatement. Historically I haven’t been a long distance runner. In fact, when I crossed the finish line of my first half marathon I remember distinctly telling my friend that I had zero desire to run any farther than that. And yet there I was signing up for my first full marathon, less than a year after I had made that statement. To me, the marathon represented the impossible- something I said I would never do and felt I never could do. (more…)

2015 Year in Review

It’s official. We can close the book on a wildly successful 2015. Buoyed by an improving economic climate and unexpected legislative victories, the 2015 chapter brought the healthcare profession boundless opportunity. It was a year in which the perennial (but always shattered) hopes of a permanent fix to the therapy caps finally showed some life. To the amazement of the world, Washington passed a monumental “Doc fix” bill that included close to 3 years of therapy cap relief. The bill gave the Allied industry some much-needed breathing room and a shot of optimism for greater days ahead. In addition, the ongoing infusion of patients gaining health insurance through the ACA was a prime factor in Healthcare Staffing revenues growing 17% in 2015. While the national healthcare prognosis gained steam, Advanced Medical was busy executing our aggressive expansion plans, while pioneering new mentoring and educational programs.

CMS Announces Major Initiative For Hip And Knee Replacements

knee-replacement-rehabOver the last few years, this blog has covered the gradual evolution towards Medicare payment models built on bundled care with an emphasis on quality over quantity. Up until this point there has been a slow advance of small-scale pilot programs experimenting with various forms of incentives and penalties relating to the quality of patient care that focuses on efficiencies and partnerships. After numerous fits and starts it appears we finally have a long term program in place that does more than just tinker around the edges. CMS has just announced a mandatory bundled payment plan for hip and knee replacements for hospitals in 67 metro areas across the country. The CJR model (comprehensive care for joint replacement) will cover the costs covering the period of admission to 90 days post discharge. CMS will set financial and quality of care targets for benchmarks. Hospitals who meet these goals may be eligible for additional Medicare payments. (more…)
