-- Technology backbone and combined service center automate the patient discharge process from hospital to post-acute care
GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo. -- Recondo Technology today released its Post-Acute Transition(TM) software solution as part of a development and service relationship with Ensocare. Post-Acute Transition automates a fragmented and complex discharge process with web-based software and services that seamlessly facilitate a patient's transition from the hospital to post-acute care in the most efficient, cost-effective manner possible.Post-Acute Transition is the initial offering in the Recondo CareConnector(TM) suite of products.
The Recondo Post-Acute Transition solution helps hospitals streamline and shorten the discharge process and move patients into post-acute facilities quickly and efficiently. Hospitals often experience delays in the discharge process due to manual and time-consuming processes, taking hours or even days to find an appropriate post-acute placement for a patient. The lengthy discharge process creates delays in a patient's discharge, often increasing length of stay (LOS) beyond what is medically necessary. This increases operating costs, reducing margins for cases reimbursed on a diagnosis-related group (DRG) basis.
"As health systems begin to assume risk and enter into fee-for-value care models, efficiently transitioning patients to post-acute settings of care becomes increasingly important," said Lori Prestesater, Recondo Chief Growth Officer. "Instead of taking days to place complex patients in post-acute facilities, with Post-Acute Transition, the process takes less than 30 minutes. The economical combination of technology and service helps hospitals achieve real bottom-line savings. For example, with an automated discharge process helping transition patients, OSF Saint Francis experienced an 8:1 Return on Investment within six months -- a savings of $1.2 million per year because of reduced LOS."
"Finding the right post-acute placement for a patient is increasingly complex, based upon various clinical and financial needs,"Wayne Sensor, Ensocare CEO said. "Our technology backbone helps people do the right things: getting the right patient placed at the right time with the right clinical information so hospitals can focus their time and scarce resources where they can make a real difference in patient care. When Post-Acute Transition is activated, the hospital immediately has access to an industry-leading, no-cost network of more than 100,000 post-acute care providers backed by a 24/7-customer support center. The breadth of the network combined with a superior service model helps drive post-acute care provider engagement, with a participation rate of 85 percent to 90 percent."
Ensocare is a world-class provider of care coordination technology solutions and proactive 24/7 support to help healthcare organizations manage care transitions more efficiently. We excel in engaging and educating patients through our industry-leading network of nearly 100,000 post-acute providers, which helps hospitals reduce readmissions and length of stay while significantly improving the patient's quality of care.
