Post-Acute Care Strategy

LBMC’s Post-Acute Care Consulting Team of experts assist with the coordination of care among ambulatory, acute and post-acute care (PAC) providers from an operational perspective. LBMC’s team provides services to post-acute care providers to help them effectively respond to strategic, regulatory and reimbursement challenges. We also partner with hospitals to develop post-acute care network strategies and focus on more coordinated less-costly continuum of care.

The LBMC Difference

The LBMC team of experts has served in various C-suite healthcare leadership roles. This expertise enables our LBMC experts to understand the major operational challenges of all healthcare post-acute providers, bringing practical expertise to improve operational performance and boost the bottom-line.


  1. As reimbursement challenges continue to rise amid the increasing financial constraints imposed by recurring cuts to Medicare and Medicaid, providers must develop new fiscally strong strategies to preserve and increase revenue. Regardless of the downward pressure on revenue, the patients need and must receive high quality care.
  2. Coordination of care among ambulatory, acute and post-acute care providers is critical. Effective strategies begin with managing care prior to an acute episode and collaborating with all providers and the patient throughout the continuum to ensure safe transition back into the community.
  3. LBMC’s Care Continuum Coordination model provides the framework for physicians, acute care hospitals and post-acute care providers to achieve the highest quality patient care.
