The Level of Care (LOC) process is a crucial method used by states to determine medical need for long term care services. It’s imperative that the LOC is fast, accurate and reliable. Ascend’s LOC software LOC Pro™ is an easy-to-use, online application that is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. LOC Pro facilitates online screening and referral by providers, contains a tracking mechanism, automates notifications to appropriate parties, and provides on-demand reports to the state to enable planning and monitoring activities using real-time data. Every step in the process is web-based, allowing efficiencies, fast turnaround, secure data transfer, and elimination of paper. LOC Pro even seamlessly combines with PASRR Pro—I™ for a streamlined Level I process.
For even greater effectiveness, Ascend combines the expert clinical review of our experienced clinicians with our time-saving LOC software. This powerful combination offers the fastest and most accurate results possible, allowing patients to be discharged quicker from costly care, and reducing the cost for states.
