WellSky announces its partnership with Post Acute Medical (PAM) to power ongoing innovation based on client needs and goals for continued growth, it reports in a news release

PAM is leveraging WellSky technology across a range of care settings — including inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation and long-term acute care hospitals (LTACHs). PAM is leveraging WellSky RCM technology in 43 of its hospitals and EHR technology in eight hospitals.

Throughout 2020, PAM implemented WellSky LTACH and rehabilitation software, which includes its revenue cycle management (RCM) module and its electronic health record (EHR). In 2021, PAM plans to continue implementing WellSky’s EHR at approximately 20 of its rehabilitation facilities and LTACHs. PAM is also slated to extend WellSky’s RCM and EHR technology into inpatient behavioral health facilities in the future.

“Our decision to convert our existing systems to WellSky was pivotal for Post Acute Medical, and it allows us to integrate across the care continuum, from both a financial and clinical perspective.

“WellSky centralizes key functions from pre-admission through discharge. WellSky ultimately reduces manual processes, streamlines reporting, and eliminates the need for other vendors/systems, which is unique in the post-acute space.”

— Kristen Smith, President of Clinical Innovation and Business Intelligence of PAM

In addition to technology, PAM is benefitting from WellSky’s 40 years of industry experience and long-term strategy to increase connectivity across the continuum of care.

“What Post Acute Medical has gained in working with WellSky is not just software, but also partnership with its thoughtful, experienced teams.

“I find that WellSky and Bill Miller’s vision for integration between different levels of post-acute care aligns with the federal government’s intent, as well as patient needs across transitions in their care journey. The close partnership between Post Acute Medical and WellSky is what’s going to bring us, and ultimately our patients, the greatest value.”

— Jeffrey Anderson, PhD, Vice President, Clinical Solutions of PAM

PAM and WellSky are aligned in their shared efforts to further connect and improve care across the post-acute continuum and beyond. WellSky looks forward to expanding its partnership with PAM over time, according to Bill Miller, CEO of WellSky, the release continues.

“At WellSky, we know that forming effective partnerships with our clients helps them do good for people and well in business.

“Our company is committed to proactively partnering with our clients to empower their success, and that’s a promise we make to our more than 15,000 clients across acute, post-acute, and community care. Our partnership with Post Acute Medical really illustrates the range of ways we work with our clients to support their businesses.”
