TOMS RIVER, NJ, May 19, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- FountainView Care Center, a New Jersey Skilled Nursing Facility and GoMo Health , a leader in post discharge care coordination and population health management solutions, have launched the first of its kind 30-60-90 day readmission reduction program upon discharge for chronic conditions including diabetes, COPD, congestive heart failure (CHF), chronic joint care (CJC), chronic kidney disease (CKD) and sepsis.
The GoMo Health Concierge Care Personal Concierge Readmission Reduction program was designed with input from Zimmet Healthcare Services Group, LLC, to align with the new CMS Quality Strategy to improve patient transition and care support when discharged from skilled nursing facilities (SNF), while providing a cost-effective program to reduce readmissions and improve communications, especially for high risk populations.
"FountainView Care Center's mission is to provide the highest quality of care for their residents. We understand that many of our residents suffer from illness or disabilities; in addition to superior physical therapy through Kessler Rehab, we are now offering superior transitional care through the first GoMo Health Personal Concierge Readmission Reduction program,", said Steven Friedman, Director of FountainView Care Center. "This innovative, cloud-based solution enables us to deliver the finest care to our patients in Lakewood, no matter where they are based."
The GoMo Health Concierge Care solution is currently deployed by dozens of healthcare organizations including health plans, hospitals, health systems and state/city population health management community outreach programs to improve chronic condition management, increase compliance with care plans and to improve adherence to post-transition rehabilitation care.
"Our unique Personal Concierge Readmission Reduction program is designed to support transitional care, from the point of discharge up to 90 days' post," stated Bob Gold, Behavioral Technologist, GoMo Health. "The program is based upon our exclusive Behavioral Rx science, methodology, and communications techniques that leverage people's innate behavioral and emotional attributes (such as trust, credibility and reciprocity) to drive real-time action."
The Personal Concierge Readmission Reduction program for SNF and PAC facilities enables nurses and administrators to onboard qualified patients and residents just prior to discharge, using a custom, cloud-based Health Risk Assessment (HRA) survey. The survey identifies patients' procedure(s) or condition(s), captures personal information for the patient and/or caregiver (i.e. weight and other patient risk-oriented and health-related data), and places them in an appropriate engagement track.
"Today's provider must operate beyond the current 'volume-based' reimbursement system and provide measurable, 'value-driven' care to remain competitive," stated Marc Zimmet, President of Zimmet Healthcare Services Group, LLC. "Provider success is now contingent upon quality, managed care positioning and comparative analytics. To that end, our new partnership with GoMo Health supports our mission to ensure our clients maintain every competitive advantage."
