CareRise to release post-acute care index

CareRise has announced progress in the development of The CareRise Index, a new rating system for post-acute care providers.

The index will provide “helpful, comprehensive assessments of providers based on real-time reviews by allowing patients in post-acute settings such as skilled nursing and rehabilitation facilities or at-home rehab services to provide real-time evaluation on provider-services,” the company said. This is through its CareRise Apps and designated websites.

CareRise's acquisition of PatientVote.com will help it gather patient reviews for the index, according to CareRise founder and CEO Tim Goux.

“These applications will work within our major CareRise risk management and patient safety platforms for our business industry models, but will be accessible to all patients within those programs — via our healthcare provider clients,” Goux said.
