Prime Care Technologies announced last week intent to offer resident telehealth to post-acute care organizations through its primeFORCE affiliate, in conjunction with Complete Telehealth Solutions™ LLC (CTS).

CTS offers HIPAA-compliant video conferencing. Its behavioral healthcare providers use a seven-dimension behavior assessment that meets the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services standards for reimbursement, the company said. Facilities also can purchase supporting equipment and software to create virtual clinics for their long-term care residents.

“In utilizing this telehealth service to more accurately diagnose emotional problems and prescribe treatment plans, they can reduce readmission rates and operational costs while achieving higher satisfaction scores,” said primeFORCE Executive Vice President Joe Stone.

primeFORCE Resident Telehealth also will be showcased to the industry at the American Health Care Association’s convention in San Diego this October, the company said.
