BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CarePort Health, a pioneer in care coordination and post-acute outcomes management, today announced the availability of CarePort Transition Extender within the Epic App Orchard marketplace. The Transition Extender allows users to embed CarePort Transition, a post-acute referral management application, within their discharge planning workflow. Transition Extender streamlines the creation, sending and management of post-acute referrals from directly within the EHR.
Transition Extender helps expedite patient referrals to the next level of care. Leveraging an existing electronic network of over 20,000 post-acute providers nationwide, real-time referral messages and notifications, and reports specific to transitions of care, Transition improves patient and financial outcomes and decreases discharge delays.
“CarePort Transition was designed from the ground up as a referral tool embedded within Epic to complement EHR-centric referral workflows,” said Dr. Lissy Hu, CEO and founder of CarePort. “The integration with Epic available through Transition Extender ensures the end user never has to leave the EHR workflow, which is critical to achieving more efficient and effective referrals and transitions of care.”
Transition Extender extends EHR functionality and helps users comply with regulatory mandates such as the recently finalized discharge planning requirements of the IMPACT Act and the Conditions of Participation. Through a hosted national database of post-acute providers maintained by CarePort, Transition Extender users are enabled to provide patient choice during the post-acute care selection process by offering access to quality and resource use measures regarding every Medicare-certified post-acute facility nationwide.
Available now in the App Orchard marketplace, Transition Extender provides access to CarePort Transition directly from the patient record within Epic. Transition Extender is the second CarePort application listed in App Orchard. CarePort Guide, a post-acute provider database and patient choice application, is also available within the marketplace.
