MediLinks® IRF Management software addresses audit risks, reporting demands, and treatment requirements under the pressure of an evolving post-acute payment model

Mediware Information Systems, Inc., a provider of healthcare and human services software, has launched MediLinks IRF Management, a browser-based software solution designed to streamline the highly regulated workflows unique to inpatient rehabilitation—preadmission, therapy time tracking, IRF-PAI submission, and quality measures.

“IRFs have faced significant scrutiny in recent years,” noted Thomas Mann, Mediware’s president and CEO. “And with CMS’ movement toward a single payment model for all post-acute care, that scrutiny is likely to intensify. That’s why we developed this essential solution for a valued group of providers, whom we have served for more than 25 years,” he added.

Many inpatient teams are forced to use their hospital’s enterprise-wide EMR to manage preadmission, scheduling, and billing workflows, which are found nowhere else in the hospital. This results in awkward workarounds that only make compliance and productivity more challenging.

“MediLinks IRF Management software gives organizations what they need to manage the high-priority tasks that drive compliance and revenue protection,” said MediLinks Product Manager Shawn Hewitt. “No other system we know of offers such fast and easy workflows for preadmission, three-hour rule/IRF scheduling, and IRF-PAI management.”
