CHICAGO, May 31, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Centegra Health System has announced that they are expanding the usage of enTouch to manage all discharges from the health system. After seeing significant results with their high-risk population, Centegra will start onboarding all of their preferred post-acute partners onto enTouch - a growing digital network connecting care providers from Hospital to Home. The next phase of the partnership will be focused on streamlining discharge management to increase efficiency with post-acute partners and steer patients to the correct care setting for more cost-effective care.
"We've seen such tremendous success over the last 18 months using enTouch for our complex case management. Expanding access to all of our care managers and our preferred post-acute network will help us gain efficiencies, lower costs and increase quality of care for our patients," said Astrid Larsen, Director Care Coordination at Centegra Health System.
Centegra originally partnered with enTouch in late 2016 to manage their Bundled Payments for Care Improvement (BPCI) population. By facilitating enhanced communication between the hospital and their preferred provider network with enTouch, they were able to lower readmissions significantly and capture a $1 million net swing in CMS revenue.
"Centegra Health System is pushing boundaries by using enTouch to connect with their post-acute partners and increase communication beyond their facilities. We're thrilled to expand the enTouch footprint in the Chicago area and help our partners provide the best care possible," said Tim Coulter, COO of PreparedHealth.
