New Table – MA/Commercial 65+ Home Health Destinations by Payer
We have added a new table to the Physicians Analyze page, under the Destinations Tab, called MA/Commercial 65+ Home Health Destinations by Payer. This table will show you patterns of patient care and how they differ between FFS and MA at the physician level. You can see the payer mix of patients at specific destinations. This will enable you to better target potential referral sources based on their FFS and MA patient populations.
- clicking on the plus sign will open a breakout of the counted patients by payer.
Trella's MA/Commercial dataset covers approximately 75% of all non-FFS people aged 65+. See Medicare FFS, MA, and MA/Commercial 65+
Enhancement – Total Patient Cost - Age Filter
On the Reports page, under the Total Patient Cost tab, we have enhanced the Age Filter Type. This will help you to see Total Patient Cost by BPCI group, allowing you to speak in the same language as the hospital.
Enhancement – Home Health Utilization Chart
On the Facilities Analyze page, under the Utilization & Quality tab, viewing the Home Health Utilization chart, a new dropdown option named “Patient/Intended/Actual” is now available. This will allow you to see the various types of utilization in the same chart. Using this chart, you can have productive conversations with facilities to illustrate the intention vs. reality while helping them better partner with you and increase adherence.
Look at the images below to see the difference.
Enhancement – Average Medicare Reimbursement
On the Facilities Analyze page, under the Utilization & Quality tab in the Readmission Groups table, we have added the Average Medicare Reimbursement for Inpatient Stays and Readmitted Stays. This can help you talk about the penalty for not keeping patients out of the hospital and how they can partner with PAC to keep these costs minimal.
Enhancement – Dual-Eligible Patients
We have added a new metric named Dual-Eligible Patients, which applies to both Facilities and PAC Providers. This metric can be found in the following locations:
- Explore Page > Dual-Eligible Patients Column
- Optional column
- Analyze Page > Patient Population Tab > Patient Volume > Dual-Eligible Patients Row
- Chart and Table view
The Dual-Eligible Patient metric is the count of distinct Medicare FFS patients who were discharged from the selected Provider and were also eligible for Medicaid coverage during the one-year reporting period.
Knowing dual-eligible patient counts will help you decide if you should go after or avoid a referral source (or potential acquisition). This will also show you the volume to have a better picture of payer mix among various provider types.

New Table – Patient Diagnostic Mix
On the Physicians Top Metrics page, we have added a new Patient Diagnostic Mix table to show the top 3 diagnoses from a physician. The table is sorted by two columns:
- Trella Diagnostic Group: Determined by the primary diagnosis for that patient.
- Annual Patient Count: Count of distinct patients treated by this physician within the previous year with a principal diagnosis that falls within the Trella diagnostic group.
The Top 3 Diagnoses shown are based on the primary ICD-10-CM diagnosis code for patients treated by the physician that fall within the Trella diagnostic group. This will help you better understand how to approach conversations with providers, and how patients align with the services your agency offers.
