PARA-SCOPE ® - Provider Risk Ranking and Analytics Site Launched

May 31, 2016

Atlanta, GA - Formation Healthcare Group (FHG), a division of Formation Capital, has launched PARA-SCOPE ® , a post-acute risk evaluation tool that was developed in collaboration with some of the industry’s leading organizations and largest operators. At the click of a button, PARA-SCOPE ® allows stakeholders to analyze summary data and identify key risk areas by comparing one or more providers to benchmarks using Formation Healthcare Group’s expertly designed risk ratings.

Comprehensive data from multiple sources including Nursing Home Compare, Quality In-Cite®, American Health Care Association (AHCA), and FHG’s proprietary predictive analytics models is combined into one quick summary report – including regulatory survey outcomes, occupancy, re-hospitalization rates, 5-Star Ratings, enforcement actions, quality measures, special focus facility designation and candidacy, predicted likelihood of adverse outcomes, and more.

Early subscribers to PARA-SCOPE ® include lenders, operators, marketers, investors, insurers, and researchers conducting portfolio due diligence, performance trending, market/competitor analyses, preferred provider network development, and resource allocation and prioritization.

FHG also offers prescriptive Trigger Reports which identify key areas of opportunity that are triggering high-predicted likelihood of adverse events, allowing operators to understand the need for and deploy specific resources to areas of greatest need and impact.

“The industry has evolved dramatically over the last few years due in part to the ACA and financial pressures to provide quantifiable quality outcomes for the services provided by all payor sources. The need for an on-demand, comprehensive tool to assess performance and risk that is descriptive, predictive and prescriptive is critical to understanding clinically- related exposures for many stakeholders,” explains Trissie Farr, Senior Vice President of Formation Healthcare Group. “The entrepreneurial insights of our founders at Formation Capital in the early 2000s positioned our advisory team with the opportunity to have a “clinical competitive advantage” and be primed for these future changes. It is exciting to introduce PARA-SCOPE®, which brings this information together from disparate data sources into one location, allowing users to view, benchmark, and analyze information quickly “at-a-glance” in one place. As a result of the hard work from our team led by Jessica Curtis and various partners in the industry, I am proud to introduce what we hope is the first of several such tools to assist stakeholders in navigating the challenges ahead in the Post-Acute Care space.”

While PARA-SCOPE® is available on demand through for skilled nursing facilities, operators can also gain access to an assisted living PARA-SCOPE® through a subscription to Formation Healthcare Group’s Quality In-Cite® database, along with a skilled nursing PARA-SCOPE® that includes real-time regulatory survey outcomes and access to Trigger Reports.
