LEXINGTON, Ky. (April 28, 2017) – Blue & Co., LLC is very pleased to share that Louisville Senior Managers Nancy Hublar and John Britt have passed the Resident Assessment Coordinator Certified Program (RAC-CT®).

The RAC-CT is nationally recognized as the gold standard in resident assessment in the long-term care nursing profession and reflects expertise in skilled nursing facility prospective payment system and minimum data set (MDS 3.0) assessment.

This achievement offers Blue & Co.’s long-term clients, as well as hospitals who own/operate long-term care, assistance with challenges around managing MDS – which is the primary driver of payment.
