BOSTON, PatientPing, a health technology company that connects providers to seamlessly coordinate patient care, today announced a new collaboration with HCR ManorCare, a leading provider of short-term, post-acute services and longer-term care, to enable real-time patient care coordination.
Over the past five years, PatientPing has been steadily expanding its care coordination network of participating providers state-by-state. With this national collaboration, PatientPing will more rapidly accelerate its expansion from nearly twenty states to the remainder of the country, with the aim of creating a national healthcare system in which providers can easily come together to ensure medical information is shared and care is coordinated, regardless of where a patient chooses to receive care.
With the PatientPing platform, HCR ManorCare will proactively monitor patient populations throughout the healthcare continuum and access valuable information to inform care decisions. These detailed insights into their patient population allow them to establish strategies around their post-acute services, reduce unnecessary hospital readmissions, and facilitate safer care transitions between providers to improve patient outcomes and drive revenue for the organization.
“At HCR ManorCare, we have a commitment to serve our community as we work to improve the outcomes of our patients every day,” said HCR ManorCare Vice President of Sales and Marketing Marty Grabijas. “With PatientPing, we’re able to gain valuable patient insights that help providers to reduce hospital readmissions and ease our patients’ transitions from one care setting to the next.”
HCR ManorCare has a network of nearly 500 skilled nursing and rehabilitation centers, memory care communities, assisted living facilities, outpatient rehabilitation clinics, and hospice and home health care agencies. Over the past three years, they have invested nearly $300 million in new construction, renovation and expansion of existing facilities, equipment and information technology.
“We are very excited to work with a leading and incredibly innovative post-acute organization like HCR ManorCare on this national collaboration to help them continue to provide their community with exceptional care,” said PatientPing CEO Jay Desai. “HCR ManorCare’s expansive network helps us more rapidly grow our national footprint so providers can more easily coordinate care across the healthcare continuum.”
PatientPing’s community includes tens of thousands of providers nationwide and is the leading care coordination network. PatientPing is rapidly accelerating its nationwide expansion so that any providers who share patients anywhere in the country can coordinate care with one another.
