Most medical conditions are episodic in nature. This makes it nearly impossible for the attending physician to be present at the earliest onset of a medical episode. As a result, minor ailments can progress into more serious conditions.
MPAC's SNF Program bridges this gap by delivering timely medical care through staffing the facility with an on-site Advanced Practice Clinician (nurse practitioner or physician assistant). Functioning as an extension of the attending physicians' team, the MPAC provider is on-site daily, available to treat any patient at the moment their condition warrants it.
MPAC practitioners provide a high level of coordination that complements the work of the attending physician.
- 12 hours of coverage, 7 days a week
- MPAC providers care for patients with many types of insurance, including medicaid
- We proactively identify triggers and manage conditions
- When more urgent care is needed, the MPAC provider will treat-in-place when possible
- Medications and treatments are monitored and adjusted as needed
Our goal is to decrease the burden of time-consuming non-billable patient management activities required of the attending physician.
As a result of MPAC's SNF program, the physician will experience:
A continued rounding schedule without interruption to billing
- A reduction in non-billable patient management activities
- A reduction in calls during the day, evening, and weekend
- Freed up time because direct supervision is not required
MPAC's advance practice clinician will:
- Review medications, orders, and laboratory test
- Review and respond to abnormal laboratory values
- Attend to acute and chronic problems on a daily basis
- Serve as another point of contact for patients and their families
Facilities partnered with MPAC will have an additional point of distinction when marketing to hospitals, physicians, and the community
- Reduced risk of infection, falls, and other common causes of hospitalizations
- Additional support for survey
- Enhanced marketability
- Improved resident satisfaction
- Less demand on nursing staff and physicians
- DON's report that their staff is more confident performing their own work by having an MPAC provider on-site
