BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CarePort, powered by WellSky®, a market leader in care transitions, today announced that John Muir Health, a leading not-for-profit integrated healthcare system in Northern California, has implemented CarePort Connect and CarePort Insight to better track and manage patients as they travel through the care continuum. Through this integration, John Muir Health aims to achieve increased transparency around care coordination – driving improved patient outcomes, optimized care transitions, and reduced hospital readmissions.
Building on its use of CarePort Care Management to support discharge planning initiatives, John Muir Health has expanded its deployment of CarePort solutions by investing in CarePort Connect. Connect allows the health system to better track and manage patients who have received care in another setting – whether a different hospital, a skilled nursing facility (SNF), or a home health agency. Connect enables disparate providers that share patients across the continuum to coordinate care through real-time, actionable alerts and data.
“With cross-continuum data sharing enabled by CarePort, we’ll be able to better manage patients from admission through post-acute discharge,” said Ann Orders, Executive Director, Population Health, Care Management, and Continuum Services, John Muir Health. “Readmission reduction is a key focus area for us, and we are excited to leverage CarePort’s technology to enhance these outcomes.”
To optimize post-acute network management and work more collaboratively with its SNF partners, John Muir Health will also implement CarePort Insight. Leveraging real-time data from Insight, John Muir Health will measure and benchmark performance within its SNF network to better track hospital readmissions, detect potential gaps in care, and identify opportunities for improvement.
“Our continued partnership with John Muir Health represents a critical milestone as CarePort continues to expand the footprint of its real-time care coordination platform in Northern California,” said Lissy Hu, MD, CarePort CEO and founder. “We are thrilled to be John Muir Health’s care coordination platform of choice, and look forward to providing its hospitals with the necessary data and insights to improve transitions of care.”
