St Paul, MN (PRWEB) April 02, 2014
Revation Systems announced today that it has acquired North Light Software, a leading provider of cloud-delivered Information, Referral and Case Management solutions for governments, medical providers and care transition teams. North Light’s Resource House software suite is implemented in numerous state, local and county governments and is utilized by many medical providers and consumers throughout the US.
“The combination of North Light’s Resource House solution with Revation’s LinkLive platform will reduce care transition times and bring simplified case management, referral information and community resource tools to any care specialist or contact center agent,” said Perry Price, Revation Systems President and co-founder. “Combining the two solutions creates a next-generation platform for anyone involved in care transitions, community health management, and their related contact centers.”
“This is exciting news for the seniors in Minnesota and their caregivers,” says Krista Boston, Director of Consumer Assistance Programs at the Minnesota Board on Aging. “Revation and North Light coming together is a huge plus for the Area Agencies on Aging and any community resource assistance or referral group. It’s going to allow for more efficient interactions and enable us to get seniors the help they need where it is required. It is the natural evolution of services to give consumers more information and enables us to build on the next generation of care coordination and case management.”
Healthcare providers are taking note as well. A key element to the success of any accountable care model is effective management of the health of a population of patients, which means coordinating care delivery outside the traditional clinical environment and ensuring that care transitions happen seamlessly and efficiently. Evidence suggests the current state leaves much to be desired - a recent study published in the Journal of American Geriatrics Society showed that more than 1 in 5 Medicare patients are readmitted to the hospital within 30 days of discharge from a nursing home, with more than 1 in 3 needing acute care within 90 days of discharge. The combination of North Light community health tools with Revation’s virtual communication platform will improve care transitions and reduce unnecessary readmissions.
