CAMBRIDGE, Mass., July 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- PointRight announces the launch of its new, analytics-powered mobile app, PR Pronto!,™ a new analytics delivery mechanism that enables providers to easily and immediately have access to crucial data and analytics that help them improve care quality and make data-driven decisions during care transitions from acute-care settings to post-acute care settings.
In its first release of PR Pronto!, PointRight is providing its industry-standard rehospitalization measure, PointRight® Pro 30™, so providers can instantly gauge rehospitalization risk before a patient is admitted to a skilled nursing facility (SNF) or even before the SNF approves or denies the admission. This enables care management staff to gather more information to determine whether it has the expertise and/or resources to effectively care for the patient.
The PR Pronto! app provides the following benefits:
- Improves care transitions by predicting probability of rehospitalization before patients move from an acute care setting to a SNF setting.
- Empowers SNF intake coordinators and pre-admissions staff with a data-driven means to screen potential patients for high-risk so the right care resources can be appropriated.
- Identify and mitigate resident-centric rehospitalization risk factors at the onset of admission to your SNF.
- Get predictive rehospitalization data on Day Zero or Day One. No need to wait for the first MDS to be completed to know the risks you need to manage.
"Post-acute providers need tools that enable them to make accurate risk assessments, such as risk of rehospitalization, at the onset of admission so they can make the right care decisions for the patient," said Steven Littlehale, Executive Vice President and Chief Clinical Officer at PointRight. "PR Pronto! is that solution. Providers will now understand precisely what the rehospitalization risk is ahead of admission through this analytics-powered screening tool driven by the PointRight Pro 30 Rehospitalization measure, with more analytics coming in the future. This brings immediacy to the risk assessment, as well as accuracy."
The PR Pronto! mobile app allows the input of demographic information and 30 health and diagnostic conditions that are likely to remain stable and be easily known at the time of anticipated admission to the SNF. Once these variables are entered, a PointRight rehospitalization model is run and an estimate of the patient's readmission risk is provided. The PR Pronto! app will be augmented with more predictive models and analytics in the near future, including the PointRight mortality risk index, which is the next-planned addition to the app.
PR Pronto! is available for the Apple® iOS® operating system and can be downloaded via the Apple Store for the iPad® beginning on August 3rd; PointRight will also release an Android® version in the near future. Visit www.pointright.com, for all solution downloads and additional information.
