HARRISBURG, Pa., July 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- APS Healthcare announced today that it will be serving the citizens of Florida as KEPRO, leveraging expertise and continuing its partnership with the Florida Department of Children and Families to build healthier communities through the Preadmission Screening and Resident Review (PASRR) program to ensure individuals receive appropriate care.
Since 2007, APS Healthcare has been supporting the state in ensuring that no individual with a serious mental illness is inappropriately placed in a nursing home by completing PASRR Level II evaluations and determinations. When nursing home level of care is found to be needed, the program will work to ensure that the patient's mental health needs are also met.
As part of the rebranding initiative KEPRO unveiled the new website, http://flpasrr.kepro.com/ that includes enhanced usability and content to further assist Florida's members and providers, alike.
"This change really emphasizes our dedication to providing additional value to meet our client's and their member's specific needs," stated KEPRO President and CEO Joseph A. Dougher. "KEPRO continuously delivers on our promise of providing Intelligent Value and this new website and its functionality does just that."
The new website provides quick and easy access to essential information and programs to assist individuals, families and providers in getting the resources they need. The site is enhanced with richer online content that is easy to navigate. The new website will be updated on a regular basis to ensure that content is always up-to-date and accurate.
In May of 2015, APS Healthcare was acquired by KEPRO, a leading quality improvement and care management organization. The combination has enhanced KEPRO's ability to provide comprehensive and high quality service offerings through an integrated approach and customized solutions.
