For Neil Pruitt Jr., ...

For Neil Pruitt Jr., chairman and chief executive officer of PruittHealth based in Norcross, Ga., near Atlanta, even if providers are taken kicking and screaming into the new payment world, there is no other option but to relent and plan ahead.

Neil Pruitt Jr."We don't like what is happening, but it is happening whether we like or not, and we have to respond to it," he says. And so PruittHealth has. The company, which serves 24,000 patients on any given day in 97 centers across Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina, is taking part in the evolution of the health care payment system by branching out into new areas, like assuming the role of a health insurer to better coordinate care for patients and grow its business within a new risk model.
"What we are seeing obviously is there is more ACO penetration and more narrow networks, and a lot them are narrowing their networks based on the CMS Five-Star rankings," Pruitt says.
...
The MA SNP is actively marketed for select PruittHealth centers now, but will expand to all facilities in 2017, Pruitt says.
"Our patients within our centers have to be dually eligible. They sign up for the plan and get extra services, such as a nurse practitioner coordinator. We're seeing that coordination of care has really helped our readmission rates."
Pruitt says the company's goal is to a have a nurse practitioner plan service at all of its facilities. "This puts the provider-in this case us-in charge of the care," he says. "There are risks and rewards with that, but we have seen good outcomes so far, and we anticipate this as a net positive for us."
Beyond his own company, Pruitt expects other SNF operators to offer similar health plans in the near future, with the focus on coordination of care via the nurse practitioner model. As for how this new model changes relationships with the hospital systems that Pruitt does business with, it has been a plus in his view.
"We are hand in hand together. By having this robust nurse practitioner program, we are going to be able to address more of the patient's needs at the facility level. When hospitals look at quality metrics, like cost per Medicare beneficiary, we are going to prove that our metrics are much better than the competition," Pruitt says.
The Premier health plan just adds to the other measures already in place to improve quality and put more highly skilled staff in action to handle complex patients. "Premier allows us to be successful in other programs," he says.
...
This sentiment is echoed by Pruitt, who says PruittHealth is seeing some health systems managing care for insurance plans, notably in North Carolina, acting to keep more of the bundle for the hospital.
"They definitely are skipping the [post-acute care] providers," he says, "but this is where we believe we need to manage the care, because we believe when you go to a SNF you have better outcomes, versus we send you home and you may or may not do the rehab prescribed for and don't do the therapy and don't get the outcome."
