CMS has released 2016 Part A data for skilled nursing (and others). It’s easy to see from this data why PDPM is on the way.

For those who are curious but not so curious to spend much time on it, I’ve taken all the RUGs for every facility in the US and mapped them. See below.

Note: Mobile users, this one might not be for you. This map is going to look best on a large screen.

Hover your mouse over the map to show the controls. You will want to zoom in to find the facilities you are interested in. Hover the mouse over a facility to show the facility name, RUG distribution and days. Enjoy!

If you want to discuss this data, or anything else, you know what to do.
