Aegis Therapies®, a national leader in physical, occupational, speech therapy and wellness services, and PointRight®, the first analytics company using post-acute data to align payers and providers around value-based care initiatives, announced a new strategic opportunity available immediately. This relationship allows Aegis to offer a new approach to leveraging post-acute analytics to enhance therapy and wellness services for nursing home companies and organizations. This capability reflects the increasing importance of using descriptive and predictive analytics for improved patient outcomes in post-acute planning and transitions. It also underscores Aegis’ commitment to its refreshed mission statement of providing ‘Health and Wellness Solutions for Life.’

“Our therapists have an open dialogue with patients, their families and the nursing staff to ensure each person is getting the individualized care they need,” said Mark Besch, Chief Clinical Officer at Aegis Therapies. “Using PointRight’s clinical and business intelligence solutions, our therapists can enhance these conversations by gaining a more detailed picture of the patient to enhance our patient-centered care plans further.”

PointRight offers four solutions for post-acute care providers including RADAR for patient-level predictive analytics, Quality Measures to measure outcomes, Data Integrity Audit (DIA) to ensure Minimum Data Set (MDS) submission accuracy with built-in PDPM alerts and PointRight® Pro 30™ Rehospitalization to understand rehospitalization performance.

With this new relationship, Aegis Therapies is able to offer the option to utilize PointRight analytics to locations where Aegis provides therapy and wellness services and where an opportunity has been identified to improve alignment between nursing and rehabilitation services. This capability comes at an opportune time with the upcoming MDS process changes under PDPM, where the MDS must be completed with absolute precision in terms of accuracy and timeliness.

“Aegis Therapies has deep experience and an outstanding reputation providing therapy services that deliver clinical excellence,” said Sharon Fisher, Chief Development Officer at PointRight. “Using our analytics solutions, Aegis’ therapists will be able to leverage data-driven insights to continue to ensure that each individual is getting the care they need. We are proud to help support their mission to provide solutions to patients that enhance their health and wellness regardless of physical location or ability.”
