Medalogix Bridge: End-of-Life Planning

Identifies patients who may no longer benefit from curative care to help in end-of-life planning

Industry Challenge

While 80% of patients state they wish to spend their last days in the comfort of their home, only 25% actually do. Our nation’s focus on curative health care clouds our ability to seek other venues of care that could provide a better experience for our aging population at the end of their lives.

How Medalogix Bridge Works

Leverages data science combined with clinical insight to identify patients on the home health census who are likely to pass away in the subsequent 90 days.

Facilitates compassionate, timely, end-of-life conversations and planning that maximize access to the right care at the right time.

Helps home health providers transition those patients to a more appropriate level of care, which can improve clinical and financial outcomes.

Medalogix Bridge drives a 52% decrease of deaths on the home health census and 26% decrease in early deaths on the hospice census.

Earlier identification of hospice-appropriate patients

“The Medalogix program is transformative and has allowed us to grow our hospice census with patients no longer appropriate for home health services because we were able to start the end-of-life conversation earlier.
The growth curve started when Medalogix launched here.”
