Centegra Health System opted to participate in CMS' Bundled Payments for Care Improvement initiative. But at first, it wasn't sure how it was going to track, chart and monitor a patient's progress throughout a full 90-day episode of care.
Join us for an inside look at the enTouch implementation at Centegra Health System. Centegra began using enTouch for improved communication with post-acute providers around their high-risk BPCI patients.
With the burgeoning aging population in America, the number of people living with chronic and complex medical conditions continues to rise. A higher disease burden translates to an in increase in hospitalizations as these seniors are at greater risk of developing acute illnesses. But what happens after the hospital stay?
Adds new technology to improve care coordination with area Hospitals, Post-Acute Care and Home-based providers across the care continuum
The enTouch network activates data and evidence to drive optimal care within the Post Acute Care facilities, patients' homes, and their communities. Learn how skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) can leverage the data within enTouch to ensure seamless transitions across the care continuum and prevent re-hospitalization. This data can be in turn utilized for securing placement as a preferred partner with hospitals and health systems.
enTouch allows case managers to streamline their patient management and referral processes along with HIPAA-compliant texting and messaging. Learn more by watching the recorded webinar.
What great timing for the ACMA (American Case Management Association) National Conference to be hosted in Houston this year! The winter has dragged on and on in the Midwest and our Chicago team definitely enjoyed the 80 degree temps. Cheering on the Houston Rockets during a playoff game was certainly a bonus! But more importantly, as with all great conferences, I had the opportunity to learn from and engage with folks from across the country. Stepping back and hearing about the challenges that case managers face as well as about the innovations that are on the horizon convinced me that the field is ripe for disruption.

The Data Gap: Sharing Information
As healthcare providers strive to navigate patients safely across the care continuum, hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, and other post-acute care providers need effective processes for sharing information and tracking data regarding care transitions, patient statuses, and clinical outcomes. This need is especially heightened in an era of bundled payments and value-based purchasing where delivery of high quality and cost-efficient care is of utmost importance.
