I am a reimbursement analyst for a large health system that includes several skilled nursing facilities. Where can we find benchmarking data across other skilled nursing facilities related to costs per day for patient care? We have posed the question to our state-wide trade association and they do not have this sort of data. We are hoping there may be a resource that we just haven’t identified as yet. Any assistance or information you could provide would be most appreciated.
Answer: You may want to seek an outside data resource company to provide this. Our company utilizes a resource that contains the data you are seeking if you would like to contact me directly for more information.
