Asheville, NC– GEHRIMED, the creator of the first Stage-2-Certified practice management system designed exclusively for Long-Term/Post-Acute Care (LTPAC) practitioners, and MatrixCare®, the largest LTPAC EHR technology provider in the United States, today announced a strategic relationship to provide meaningful integration to service the thousands of practitioners and medical directors who serve the LTPAC community. The partnership’s level of integration will allow the exchange of data between more than 10,000 senior care facilities, 40,000 long-term care practitioners, and provide a higher-quality, and safer level of care for patients nationwide.

John Damgaard, MatrixCare President and CEO, commented, “Providing meaningful integration for GEHRIMED’s physician users tasked with servicing populations managed by MatrixCare ultimately will result in more effective transitions of care and better clinical outcomes for seniors. Our integration with GEHRIMED demonstrates our commitment to providing clinicians, residents, and families with a true longitudinal health record.”

Providers have long cited lack of interoperability as a barrier to optimal use of an EHR and timely access to data they need to provide quality care. GEHRIMED and MatrixCare have partnered to help care teams across the continuum connect seamlessly. Facilities will now have instant access to shared data to help meet their quality of care goals and coordinated collaborative care plans. Additionally, practitioners will be able to view patient charts and capture patient encounters, all while operating on an Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC)-Certified platform.

Rod Baird, President of GEHRIMED, notes, “Since the advent of EHRs, practitioners have commonly expressed concerns that the technology isn’t designed to address their data/information needs and function within their workflow. Our business model has always focused on providing solutions for these needs. Our GEHRIMED + MatrixCare integration is the culmination of those efforts. Technology is only useful if practitioners and others actually can use it to input, access, and share information that enables them to provide quality care, meet their work objectives, and provide documentation required of them by regulators and payors.”
