Henry Ford Health System has recently begun using CarePort Health for post-acute care coordination, the provider said.
“This technology enables us to follow our patients in real time if they receive care after they are discharged from our hospitals, such as at a skilled nursing facility or inpatient rehab or in a home health care environment,” said Susan Craft, R.N., director of care coordination for Henry Ford. “From an operations standpoint, it will streamline the care management processes at our hospitals.”
The CarePort Guide, Connect and Insight solutions allows providers to help patients in finding high-quality post-acute care providers, manage patients across multiple settings, keep care coordinators up-to-date about post-acute admissions, expected length of stay and hospital readmissions and apply metrics.
“Henry Ford Health System is known for its role in national healthcare quality programs and we’re honored that they chose CarePort to support its care coordination efforts,” said Lissy Hu, M.D., CEO and founder of CarePort. “CarePort is thrilled to expand into Michigan and equip Henry Ford with care coordination tools and the ability to evaluate and improve patient and provider outcomes.”
