Cambria Solutions, Inc., a national information technology and management consulting firm, today announced that Rajesh Adoni, has been elected to serve as a member of the Board for the National Association of PASRR Professionals (NAPP). Adoni will serve for a three year term starting 2016.
PASRR refers to the Preadmission Screening and Resident Review, which is a Federal program to help ensure that individuals with disabilities do not enter nursing facilities unless it is appropriate for their needs. PASRR also identifies services that are needed by these individuals to address their needs, facilitate their recovery, and to help them achieve the best possible quality of life, whether they enter a nursing facility or remain in or return to the community. NAPP is devoted to providing education to stakeholders implementing PASRR programs and advocating for individuals with mental illness, intellectual disability, and/or related conditions.
Adoni said, “Having worked with the PASRR program for the past two years, I look forward to working with NAPP to help other states and agencies implement their PASRR program in a way which benefits every facility, clinician, patient and caregiver involved.”
Adoni led the team which deployed a web based PASRR system in the State of California, which automated the PASRR Level I screening and Level II evaluation and determination processes. This reduced the PASRR processing time from about 45-50 days to 7-9 calendar days, which is the federal standard.
“The staff, their dedication, teamwork, and commitment to our success helped us deliver three months ahead of schedule,” said California Department of Health Care Services PASRR Unit Chief, Rita McCabe. “The solution has enabled the state to become compliant with the Federal PASRR timeliness requirements and is saving the State $300k annually.”
