In 2018, leaders at Amedisys, Inc. reviewed organization-wide quality initiatives to prevent unnecessary hospitalizations, improve patient satisfaction and improve care coordination, said Carolyn Erskine, AVP of Nursing Strategy, Innovation, and Programs at Amedisys. With hospitalization reduction as their primary goal, the challenge was implementing a national strategy that could connect into regional care centers without disruption of day-to-day operations, all while seamlessly supporting care centers in improvement of care coordination.
“Amedisys was looking for ways to provide outreach and touchpoints for high-risk patients in hopes of preventing unnecessary hospitalizations,” Erskine said.
The solution? Medalogix Touch, a leading home health, patient risk solution with a proven track record of preventing hospitalization.
