post acute care transitions

Ensuring successful post-acute care transitions.

As healthcare organizations shift from fee-for-service to value-based care, so is the focus of quality over quantity of services furnished in post-acute care transitions.

The move from an acute to post-acute care setting is one of the most vulnerable points in the healthcare journey. Inadequate care coordination, ineffective communication with patients and clinicians, and the limitations of information sharing between multiple providers can lead to poor patient outcomes, increased readmissions and higher amounts of healthcare spending. By improving post-acute care transitions, healthcare organizations can significantly improve patient outcomes and satisfaction while reducing healthcare costs.

The difficulty presents itself while implementing the processes and best practices for managing post-acute care transitions. Providers such as skilled nursing facilities, home healthcare agencies, inpatient rehab facilities and long-term care hospitals demand advanced technologies to handle post-acute care transitions effectively.

For these post acute care providers, naviHealth provides scalable, proprietary technology that can connect all providers in the post-acute care continuum on a single platform to facilitate seamless post-acute care transitions.
