Medalogix Touch

identifies patients at risk for hospital readmission and provides an automated patient calling solution to increase touch points between visits

Industry challenge

The shift to value-based care has led to increased urgency among home health providers to prevent rehospitalizations. Front loading and telehealth solutions are often adopted to help intervene with targeted high-risk groups, often based upon diagnosis. Yet our research shows that diagnosis alone is not an accurate indicator of rehospitalization risk. By creating only diagnosis-specific programs, those at greatest risk can easily be overlooked. As the home health population is increasing, providers need solutions that allow them to better manage patients by overall risk with the most cost-effective strategies.
