MIDDLETOWN, NY - 07/16/2018 — EmpRes Healthcare provides skilled nursing, assisted living, home health, hospice, and home care services across the western United States. The company recently partnered with Nexus Health Resources to advance its transitional care program and improve patient outcomes with the help of NexusConnexions transitional care software and the Nexus Health Call Center.
“One of our key goals after helping patients recover and return home is to maximize their functional abilities so they can continue to get better and gain more independence,” said Deb Sanderfield-Hoven, VP of Network Innovations for EmpRes. “Partnering with Nexus Health Resources allows us to strengthen our transitional care program and reduce the risk of unnecessary readmissions.”
NexusConnexions transitional care software allows EmpRes staff to more efficiently manage the day-to-day activities of a transitional care team with a tailored agenda for each patient based on individual diagnosis, risk factors, and care setting. Patient and caregiver interactions are tracked using NexusConnexions reports to compare actual and target goals and see what steps resulted in preventing readmissions. EmpRes will also use the Nexus Health Call Center to handle automated follow-up calls after discharge to confirm patient care plan adherence and facilitate a smooth transition home.
“We look forward to helping EmpRes Healthcare take this important step toward improving transitional care outcomes,” said Ryan Sparks, Co-founder and CRO of Nexus Health Resources. “Now more than ever, making sure patients remain healthy and functional after discharge is critical to improving overall health outcomes across the continuum of care.”
