Murfreesboro, Tennessee (PRWEB) May 11, 2017
Post-acute, chronic care management provider TwelveStone Health Partners, in cooperation with Encore Healthcare, a respiratory services company, are collaborating on a program to get nursing home and rehabilitation center organizations to introduce cutting edge respiratory therapies to enable patients to breathe easier and improve their independence.
“In many cases, post-acute care settings lack the focus, equipment and validated protocols to help patients breathe better and on their own,” says Shane Reeves, chief executive officer for TwelveStone. “The clinical expertise and software offered by Encore, joined with our own skill in transitions of care, positions sub-acute care providers as centers of excellence enabling them to lower costs and reduce readmissions.”
The Pulmonary Independence Center program, geared toward chronic cardiopulmonary populations, includes patient and staff education, advanced therapies, and complex care coordination, including remote patient monitoring, to help providers reduce costs and improve patient outcomes.
“Getting patients to breathe independently, or back to their own level of independence, takes dedicated effort and understanding,” says Zach Gantt, president and chief executive officer of Encore. “We’re pleased to team up with TwelveStone to help patients feel better and improve activity levels.”
