Murfreesboro, Tennessee (PRWEB) August 04, 2016
Post-acute care provider TwelveStone Health Partners has joined with Atlanta-based PREMEDEX and its care management solution to better assist TwelveStone’s hospital and other acute care clients.
“Partnering with PREMEDEX elevates our ability to provide a broader set of patient engagement solutions across the entire care continuum,” says Shane Reeves, president and CEO of TwelveStone Health Partners, Inc. “With the PREMEDEX platform, we’re the only vendor of medication, durable medical, infusion and respiratory health care products that also provides clients with the personalized care coordination ability needed to manage patients from discharge through recovery.”
For PREMEDEX, the alliance with TwelveStone gives its care coordination platform the ability to offer packaged medications to patients in other locations beyond Tennessee.
Initially, TwelveStone will utilize the PREMEDEX 30-day readmission reduction program, to help hospitals seeking to prevent readmissions penalties as well as focusing on improving HCAPS scores based on a more personalized care experience.
“Our goal is to create the type of post-acute care experience that Amazon has for retail,” says Reeves. “This is how healthcare should work in terms of making it easier for patients to access what they need to heal. It also gives hospitals and providers the extra support they need to keep readmissions low and patient satisfaction scores high.”
“This is truly patient-centered health care,” says Jim Bowling, chief operating officer and co-founder of PREMEDEX. “Everything comes to the patient as it should, and it allows patients the same retail experience they get in other areas of their lives.”
