Partnership to foster collaboration across care teams to maximize the efficiency of care transitions
SALT LAKE CITY–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#PAC—Collective Medical, delivering the nation’s most effective network for care collaboration, announced a partnership with PointClickCare Technologies. The partnership streamlines the integration between Collective’s solution for care transitions with PointClickCare’s leading cloud-based software platform. The partnership allows post-acute providers using PointClickCare’s platform to coordinate seamless care transitions and consequently reduce avoidable readmissions.
Collective has been a member of the PointClickCare Marketplace—an online platform that enables customers to easily evaluate authorized third-party technology partners—for nine months. During this period, Collective has contracted with approximately 750 PointClickCare skilled nursing facility (SNF) customers, including Consulate Health Care. Earlier this year, Collective announced its partnership with Consulate to facilitate seamless care transitions across Consulate’s 140 facilities.
According to an article published by Skilled Nursing News last year, Marquis Companies, a skilled nursing provider based in the Pacific Northwest, reduced its hospital readmissions rate by 60 percent within five months of implementing Collective.
“We’ve witnessed the challenges skilled nursing providers face when coordinating with other organizations on high-risk patients,” says Chris Klomp, CEO at Collective Medical. “The transition of care between an acute setting and a skilled nursing facility can mean all the difference in a patient’s outcome.” Klomp adds that, “By erasing the care silos in our healthcare system, Collective care teams have easy access to the information they need to provide patients with the best care at the right time and place. We can also provide tools to our post-acute client partners to enable better awareness of their patients’ needs and better visibility into their own performance so that they can strengthen their referral partner relationships.”
“It sounds simple but being able to seamlessly share information with other providers is difficult and complicated,” says Mark Crandall, CIO of Consulate Health Care. “With Collective, we’re now able to see critical information to assess a patient’s situation, and we can contribute our own patient insights in real time—all within our PointClickCare workflow. It’s a game changer.”
“PointClickCare’s network of providers and partners is continually growing and is unsurpassed—in value and in size,” said Jeff Scheepers, director, Global Partnerships, PointClickCare. “With PointClickCare as your technology partner, you have a wealth of possibilities available to seamlessly extend your PointClickCare technical capabilities. The PointClickCare Marketplace is a solid proof point of that.”
From November 3 – 7, 2019, PointClickCare will host SUMMIT 2019, the largest vendor-hosted gathering of LTPAC and senior living professionals. To learn more about how the partnership will empower SNFs and other post‐acute providers at SUMMIT 2019, visit Collective at booth 420.
