CoreCare and Creative Solutions in Healthcare (CSNHC) Team up to Tackle New Minimum Data Set (MDS) Challenges

159 of CSNHC’s Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNFs) now have access to a CoreCare’s new AI-powered tech platform for streamlining clinical reimbursement processes

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#AICoreCare, a venture-backed provider of time- and money-saving technology for the post-acute and long-term care (PALTC) industry, has partnered with Creative Solutions in Healthcare (CSNHC), a top 5 Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) company, to integrate CoreCare’s Clinical Reimbursement solution. CoreCare’s platform will enable CSNHC’s Clinical Reimbursement team to navigate the administrative challenges associated with the Minimum Data Set (MDS) 3.0 changes made by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services in October 2023.


“After the MDS changes last October, my Clinical Reimbursement team’s workload greatly increased; they were spending their valuable time on manually building reports and reviewing them for accuracy,” says Gary Blake, CEO of Creative Solutions in Healthcare. “CoreCare had already done great work for our Billing and Business Office teams, so we were relieved and optimistic that they also offered a solution for us in the MDS 3.0 era.”

The MDS 3.0 changes created multiple steps for SNF Clinical Reimbursement teams in Texas. These include the requirement to complete additional MDS assessments, which doubled the MDS workload, including manually entering additional information onto State forms and manually enter data into the company’s electronic health record (EHR) to obtain the correct reimbursement level for their residents. All these steps must be continuously performed, and data must match across all systems for SNF companies to receive accurate and uninterrupted reimbursement.

To help SNFs with MDS 3.0 challenges, CoreCare:

Automatically brings all the data together that a team needs to review, eliminating paper and Excel-based processes

Provides them with actionable alerts so they know where to focus their attention, and

Removes uncertainty by ensuring reimbursements are accurate and timely

“CoreCare has earned a well-deserved reputation for the time-savings and financial improvements they’ve enabled for our business office teams,” commented Kelly Roberts Treta, VP of Clinical Reimbursement for Creative Solutions. “Once we saw their new solution in action, I knew it would change the way we do business. CoreCare’s platform has transformed our Clinical Reimbursement Division, increased our efficiency and raised job satisfaction by eliminating a paper-based tracking system, as well as streamlining tasks and empowering us to accomplish more in less time.”

“We are proud that CoreCare is the trusted technology of record for an industry-leading SNF such as Creative Solutions in Healthcare,” said Dennis Antonelos, co-founder and Chief Executive of CoreCare. “Everything we do centers around simplifying administrative work and enabling equitable reimbursement for providers. With this added offering of clinical reimbursement navigation, we can ensure that claim payments are received accurately and in a timely manner, without unnecessary operational burdens, so our partners can spend less time on paperwork and more on caring for their residents.”
