Springfield, Mo.-based IPA 100 firm BKD LLP (FY20 net revenue of $694.9 million) has launched a tool that allows users in the post-acute care space to measure financial information against other health care organizations in the country. BKDpulse synthesizes Medicare discharge data from inpatient providers to create a national database, allowing providers to compare performance in their markets.
Storing data from existing market tools in one location, BKDpulse features a dashboard suite that allows users to evaluate pay and productivity, benchmark performance, make improvements, perform geographic needs assessments and identify opportunities for quality enhancement. The dashboards include data for skilled nursing, home health and swing bed providers to help users compare across provider types or within the same peer group.
“BKDpulse for post-acute care is based on feedback to help providers understand how they rank among others in the industry,” says director John Harned. “It allows health care providers to visualize data in ways that allow them to make quick and informed decisions.”
