Aegis Therapies, a provider of physical, occupational, speech therapy and wellness services, and PointRight, an analytics company using post-acute data to align payers and providers around value-based care initiatives, announce a new strategic opportunity.
This relationship allows Aegis to offer a new approach to leveraging post-acute analytics to enhance therapy and wellness services for nursing home companies and organizations. This capability reflects the increasing importance of using descriptive and predictive analytics for improved patient outcomes in post-acute planning and transitions.
“Our therapists have an open dialogue with patients, their families and the nursing staff to ensure each person is getting the individualized care they need,” says Mark Besch, chief clinical officer at Aegis Therapies, in a media release.
“Using PointRight’s clinical and business intelligence solutions, our therapists can enhance these conversations by gaining a more detailed picture of the patient to enhance our patient-centered care plans further.”
PointRight offers four solutions for post-acute care providers including RADAR for patient-level predictive analytics, Quality Measures to measure outcomes, Data Integrity Audit (DIA) to ensure Minimum Data Set (MDS) submission accuracy with built-in PDPM alerts and PointRight Pro 30 Rehospitalization to understand rehospitalization performance.
With this new relationship, Aegis Therapies is able to offer the option to utilize PointRight analytics to locations where Aegis provides therapy and wellness services and where an opportunity has been identified to improve alignment between nursing and rehabilitation services.
This capability comes at an opportune time with the upcoming MDS process changes under PDPM, where the MDS must be completed with absolute precision in terms of accuracy and timeliness, the release explains.
“Using our analytics solutions, Aegis’ therapists will be able to leverage data-driven insights to continue to ensure that each individual is getting the care they need,” says Sharon Fisher, Chief Development Officer at PointRight.
