Tampa, Florida (PRWEB) June 30, 2016
CareSync, the leading provider of software and services for chronic disease management, today partnered with Transitional Care Management (TCM) provider, Phyzit, to provide its customers with transitional care services, enabling providers to improve patient care and complete the requirements for Medicare’s TCM reimbursement.
Expanding existing patient care coordination services, CareSync will now offer services to track patients throughout the care cycle, including during critical care transitions following an acute care stay. More effective care coordination empowers providers to deliver more efficient care after discharge and between patient visits, translating into a speedier recovery process and reduced readmission rates, which supports value-based care goals and enhances patient satisfaction.
“Having all the resources available to patients for a timely recovery, in terms of 24/7 access to doctors and information on medications and follow-ups available at their fingertips, contributes significantly to patients’ successful transition back to their homes,” said Stephen Canon, MD, Chief Medical Officer of Phyzit. “As a physician, following patients to where they live, work and play is undoubtedly the future of healthcare, and with CareSync, we’re excited to continue to make this a reality.”
“The importance of seamless communication during this crucial transition period is quickly expanding, as Medicare’s focus on patient tracking and transitions throughout the care cycle continues to grow,” said Travis Bond, CEO of CareSync. “With this approach to transitional care management, providers can now fill expectations of initiatives that transition the fee-for-service models to value based models, and take advantage of reimbursement opportunities for their support during the transitional care period.”
CareSync’s TCM solution and services will be available to providers starting later this year.
Phyzit, founded in 2013, is a Little Rock-based company and leader in Transitional Care Management focused on enabling healthcare providers to offer better health outcomes through reduced hospital readmissions by applying TCM. Phyzit tracks the metrics of TCM so providers can concentrate on their patients.
