Overview

The Staffing Report shows the adjusted HPRD reported by CMS for:

  • Total staffing HPRD
  • RN HPRD
  • LPN HPRD
  • CNA HPRD

This initial version doesn’t show reported or expected HPRD and so we can’t see how much CMS adjusts each facilities HPRD based on their acuity. If seeing that would be interesting to you please email us at help@plainproof.com

Acuity

The Acuity analysis shows an estimate of the provider or groups average resident acuity through time.

CMS knows a providers RUG-IV case mix and use it to calculate your expected staffing levels. Based on those figures we can get a view of a provider’s average acuity.

Acuity affects staffing. Additionally facilities with higher acuity relative to their staffing levels may have a harder time addressing quality of care issues.

Comparing a provider against a single group

When you compare a provider against a single group we show you 5 charts. 4 line charts and 1 bar chart.

The top left line chart shows the raw data for the provider.

In the top right line chart we add the data for every provider in the group.

For the bottom left chart we take the average of all the providers in the group and show it against the data for the provider.

The bottom right chart is the plot of the rank of the provider in the group through time. Higher is better.

The bar chart shows the percentile the provider is in versus the group.

Beneath each plot we highlight some interesting things about the providers performance.

Comparing a provider against multiple groups

Right now we just plot the provider against the first group. We are working on an update that will compare the provider against every selected group.

Selecting & changing the provider

Choose a provider from the Analyze menu at the top left of the screen. Or search for a provider and click their name.

If you’ve chosen groups of providers to compare against for other analyses we will reuse them.

You can change with whom you’re comparing by clicking the “More groups settings” button in the top left of the screen.

Use with groups

When you compare a group against one or more groups we show a plot of the groups average performance in the data point through time.

We also include a table that, for each group being analyzed, shows:

  • Their most recent value for the data point.
  • The best value they’ve achieved in our dataset.
  • The worst value they’ve achieved in our dataset.
  • Whether they are currently trending and if the trend is good or could use some help.

Selecting & changing the group

Choose a group you’ve already created from the Analyze menu at the top left of the screen.

If you’ve chosen groups of providers to compare against for other analyses we will reuse them.

You can change with whom you’re comparing by clicking the “More groups settings” button in the top left of the screen.
