LAS VEGAS, March 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Owners and managers of senior care facilities have a new care and management technology solution introduced by American HealthTech (AHT), in partnership with Medtelligent. AHT's Assisted Living Solution helps providers navigate the technology challenges of caring for seniors who move across the spectrum of care from assisted living to skilled nursing facilities and everything in between. The combination of AHT's industry-leading skilled nursing EHR and the Medtelligent Assisted Living offering will be particularly beneficial to the fast-growing sector of continuing care retirement communities.
Post-acute owners and managers can now turn to their HCIT partner, AHT, for an expanded, expert and comprehensive solution to:
- Provide accurate, detailed electronic care records for seniors as they move among assisted living, skilled nursing facilities, continuing care retirement communities, rehabilitation centers and more; and
- Provide sophisticated financial management and workflow tools for all post-acute senior care facilities.
Each company brings great value and industry-specific expertise to this partnership: American HealthTech has more than 3,300 Skilled Nursing Facilities as clients, while Medtelligent specializes in the assisted living industry and operates in 31 states. And both have a strong service model with focused commitment to customers' businesses. AHT became part of the CPSI (NASDAQ: CPSI) family of companies in January of this year, expanding CPSI's ability to help create healthy communities through technology solutions in hospitals, clinics, skilled nursing facilities and now multiple senior care settings.
"The senior care landscape is challenging facility owners, with changing ownership models, shifting reimbursement models and the aging of America's population," said AHT president Teresa Chase.
"The Medtelligent products add strength to our AHT technology solutions and give our clients superior clinical and financial management tools across a wider landscape of care facilities," Chase said.
John Shafaee, Medtelligent's CEO said, "The product sets of our two companies blend perfectly across care settings because of AHT's proven strength in skilled nursing and Medtelligent's solutions and depth of experience in the assisted living and memory care industries. Clients will enjoy solutions purposefully built for their environment with an integrated data platform."
Chase said, "AHT's Assisted Living Solution partnership provides a best of breed solution across the continuum of care for seniors, transcending the setting."
Customers of the AHT/Medtelligent partnership will experience several key payoffs, regardless of their care settings:
- Accurate and up-to-date clinical care records for each patient;
- Medication documentation, management and accuracy;
- Revenue Cycle Management and workflow efficiencies for admissions, billing and care transitions;
- Web-based solutions that deliver real-time resident information via mobile devices; and
- Integrated care planning technology for the resident and the full interdisciplinary team.
"The big trends in our industry are upon us like a tsunami," said Chase, pointing out that in two years, 50 percent of Medicare payments will be based on quality and value of care. She said that by 2030, one of every five U.S. residents will be 65 or older and 2.3 percent of the population will be 85 or older.
Chase said, "Already, the 85-plus segment is the fastest growing population cohort in the country. These trends are unstoppable, and this business partnership will help facility owners to manage them."
