New York, NY (PRWEB) December 08, 2015
ConciergeStat, a company focused on improving transitions home from the emergency department, today announced a collaboration with Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia to study the effect of their service for patients treated in the TJUH emergency department.
“ConciergeStat provides a novel means of assisting patients in transitioning home from an emergency department visit,” said Kristin Rising, MD, Director of Acute Care Transitions at Thomas Jefferson University and leading expert on emergency department care coordination. “With the help of ConciergeStat, we hope to extend our connection with patients beyond our hospital walls to ensure our patients can access needed outpatient services.”
Dr. Rising will serve as Principal Investigator on a new study examining ConciergeStat’s impact on recurrent emergency department users. Dr. Rising added, “Our findings from this study, known as Enhanced Transitions of Care, will have potentially wide-spread implications for informing how to best develop an individualized approach to providing a safe transition home after an emergency department visit.” This work is funded by a grant from the Emergency Medicine Foundation and Emergency Nurses Association.
“We’re honored to be working with Thomas Jefferson University Hospital to improve the patient experience and increase patient retention,” said Benjamin Jack, MD, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of ConciergeStat. “Our vision has always been to make sure that patients visiting the emergency department stay appropriately connected to care, and Thomas Jefferson is a fantastic partner in delivering on that exceptional level of patient engagement.”
ConciergeStat is an end-to-end transitional care service. The platform extends the capacity and reach of a hospital or health system’s aftercare program with targeted patient checkout and follow-up. ConciergeStat matches patients with appropriate network providers and communicates with patients throughout the care continuum, helping patients to receive care in the most appropriate setting.
