Getting Your CASPER Reports Shouldn't Be Scary!

 

We're sure you can agree, the information found in CASPER reports is very valuable and reviewing it frequently is what separates great facilities from everyone else!

But, if you’re like most providers, you’re probably only reviewing your CASPER Reports on a quarterly basis (at best). Between tying up your computer and long download queues, it’s a frustrating and time consuming effort.

We get it. It’s scary how bad the current process is. To help you avoid these annoyances and save you time, eSolutions now automates this process. We’re able to pull monthly, quarterly and annual CASPER reports to make sure you’re always prepared for any audits of your facility.

By getting your reports on a monthly basis, you’ll be able to quickly identify problem areas and take steps to correct them to improve your scores and your business. Not only will this help you better monitor your quality of care, but you’ll be able to make sure you’re outperforming other facilities across the nation.
