LOS ANGELES, Jan. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Zynx Health™, the market leader in providing evidence-based clinical decision support (CDS) solutions, today announced the availability of the Cardiac Rehabilitation module in ZynxCare, the category leader of the Clinical Decision Support – Order Sets and Care Plans market segment in the 2012 Best in KLAS Awards. The ZynxCare Cardiac Rehabilitation module includes evidenced-based plans of care that support treatment standardization for cardiac patients as they move through the continuum of care from acute care facilities to outpatient rehabilitation facilities. The cardiac plan of care content decisively extends Zynx's ability to support healthcare facilities in strategically coordinating patient-focused care, cutting unnecessary costs related to healthcare-acquired conditions and inappropriate readmissions, and improving outcomes like length of stay, patient and family engagement, and self-care ability.
On the front lines with hospitals and health systems that are adjusting to new coordinated models of care delivery, such as Accountable Care Organizations and Integrated Delivery Networks, Zynx is committed to providing the best in CDS at every point along the continuum of care. As the newest demonstration of the Company's dedication to patients' care throughout their treatment journey, the ZynxCare Cardiac Rehabilitation module supports inpatient and outpatient facilities to standardize care and connect interdisciplinary care team members as cardiac patients transition through various care venues.
"The ZynxCare Cardiac Rehabilitation module is a ground breaking CDS solution that will improve patient outcomes, decrease unnecessary readmission and improve patient experience," said Patricia Button, EdD, RN, chief nursing officer for Zynx Health. "Zynx is excited to extend this value to the diverse mix of caregivers responsible for cardiac patients across multiple settings, including patients and their families."
Hospitals and health systems face various incentives to standardize cardiac care across the continuum, including preventing readmission rates and reducing the overuse of healthcare resources. The ZynxCare Cardiac Rehabilitation module, in conjunction with the acute cardiac plans of care in the ZynxCare solution, supports healthcare providers to achieve performance standards related to specific health reform programs including American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) Meaningful Use Criteria, Value-Based Purchasing, and Readmission Reductions.
As the U.S. healthcare system transforms from a fragmented collection of providers and venues into a coordinated model for consistency across the continuum of care, Zynx is committed to providing optimized and evidence-based CDS solutions that support the new models of care delivery. The Company looks forward to providing U.S. hospitals and health systems, as well as additional care venues, with evidence-based CDS content that supports patient care within these various settings and between the transitions across the continuum of care in 2013.
