Most medical conditions are episodic in nature. This makes it nearly impossible for the attending physician to be present at the earliest onset of a medical episode. As a result, minor ailments can progress into more serious conditions.

MPAC's SNF Program bridges this gap by delivering timely medical care through staffing the facility with an on-site Advanced Practice Clinician (nurse practitioner or physician assistant). Functioning as an extension of the attending physicians' team, the MPAC provider is on-site daily, available to treat any patient at the moment their condition warrants it.

Care Model

MPAC practitioners provide a high level of coordination that complements the work of the attending physician.

  • 12 hours of coverage, 7 days a week
  • MPAC providers care for patients with many types of insurance, including medicaid
  • We proactively identify triggers and manage conditions
  • When more urgent care is needed, the MPAC provider will treat-in-place when possible
  • Medications and treatments are monitored and adjusted as needed
 

Our goal is to decrease the burden of time-consuming non-billable patient management activities required of the attending physician. 

As a result of MPAC's SNF program, the physician will experience:

  • A continued rounding schedule without interruption to billing

  • A reduction in non-billable patient management activities
  • A reduction in calls during the day, evening, and weekend
  • Freed up time because direct supervision is not required

MPAC's advance practice clinician will:

  • Review medications, orders, and laboratory test
  • Review and respond to abnormal laboratory values
  • Attend to acute and chronic problems on a daily basis
  • Serve as another point of contact for patients and their families
