For Hospitals

With increased regulation and high expectations for value, Hospitals need new tools to improve operational efficiency and gain an advantage over their peers.Reducing readmission rates is vital as Medicare will no longer reimburse for readmissions for a number of diagnoses within 30 days of discharge. Another area that third party payors will increasingly address is duplication of care, which is cumbersome and sometimes dangerous for patients. More and more, duplication of care will not be reimbursed.Improved communication between hospital-based providers and outpatient providers leads to enhanced coordination of care and thus, lower readmission rates.   Both patient and providers have improved level of satisfaction when they know all stakeholders are well informed. Seamless sharing of patient information leads to timelier care plan modifications, which leads to a shorter length of stay and better patient outcomes.
