Patient Placement Systems Announces the Release of CensusVision™

Dashboards offer a fast, accurate, customizable view of marketing and census trends and performance metrics for executive managers at skilled nursing facilities

ATLANTA, June 30, 2011—Patient Placement Systems (PPS) today announced the launch of its CensusVision™ online executive dashboards, designed to offer a fast, accurate snapshot of trends and performance metrics specifically for managers at skilled nursing facilities. The dashboards integrate with the Web-based PPS Referral Management System (RMS), the industry’s only system that automates marketing, admissions, bed management and reporting for nursing homes.

“Busy marketing and operations executives of skilled nursing facility providers need certain census management information and analysis live and up-to-date at any time, in a format they can quickly understand,” said Doug Walker, VP and general manager of PPS. “We built these CensusVision dashboards into our Referral Management System with that in mind—a fast, customizable snapshot of the trends and activity you need most to make nimble, smart decisions for your facilities.”

Walker said that skilled nursing facility providers partnering with PPS now get the best of both worlds: fast admissions and marketing analysis with dashboards, and the comprehensive activity and performance details in standard and custom reports. PPS provides and will continue to add standard dashboards, and it will collaborate with clients to build custom dashboards as requested. Each system user can customize and choose which dashboards he or she will see upon login.

The initial launch of CensusVision includes the following standard executive dashboards available within the Referral Management System:

  • Referral win/loss, which provides a high-level graphical comparison of referrals won and lost during a specified period
  • Admissions by payer, which shows admitted referrals per facility by payer type
  • Decline referrals by payer, which highlights reasons that single, multiple or all facilities are declining referrals
  • Lost referrals by payer, which highlights reasons facilities are losing referrals
  • Total referrals by payer, which shows the total number of referrals by payer
  • Admissions by custom-defined diagnosis, which provides of the admitted referrals per facility by custom defined categories


The dashboards typically combine two or more simple, graphical perspectives of the data. For example, the admissions by payer dashboard displays a bar chart of admissions counts by payer alongside a pie chart with percentages of each payer type. Users can select preset or custom date ranges for each dashboard.
