Bundled payment company announces partnership
Remedy Partners and PointClickCare have announced a secure data integration solution partnership.
The data will be exchanged between PointClickCare and Remedy Partners' Episode Connect™ platforms, which lets Remedy and skilled nursing facilities in the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services BPCI Model 3 program study outcomes. Once data is integrated in Episode Connect, patient records are easily accessed by professionals across all existing and future care settings. Episode Connect has managed more than 440,000 cumulative BPCI episodes to date and processes more than 18 million EHR transactions per month, the company said.
By better managing care transitions, the providers hope to give an improved patient experience with a lower cost to CMS.
“Data sharing and coordination between acute- and post-acute care providers has been an elusive goal with many process improvement efforts,” said Chris Garcia, chief executive officer of Remedy Partners. “For those skilled nursing facilities treating patients in value-based payment models, such as the CMS BPCI program or the Accountable Care Organization program, it is absolutely critical that all data pertaining to patients' episodes of care is comprehensive and easily accessible.”
