Empowering Organizations to Standardize the Care Transition Process, Cut Costs, Improve Outcomes, Reduce Readmissions and Increase Patient and Caregiver Engagement
LOS ANGELES, March 26, 2013 –Zynx Health™, the market leader in providing evidence-based clinical decision support (CDS) solutions, today announced the availability of the ground-breakingZynxCare®Transition of Care checklist. Hospitals and health systems have historically depended upon an unreliable patient handoff and discharge process, placing patient care quality and safety at risk, while increasing costly readmissions. The checklist delivers unparalleled evidence-based plans of care for treatment standardization as patients move within acute care settings as well as between long-term care and outpatient facilities.
“Building upon ZynxCare, our KLAS #1 rated solution, the Transition of Care checklist further demonstrates Zynx’s commitment to innovation,” said David Cerino, executive vice president and chief operating officer for Zynx Health. “With this cutting-edge CDS content, healthcare facilities and interdisciplinary care providers will benefit from evidence-based CDS at every step along a patient’s journey.”
In the current era of healthcare reform, hospitals and health systems face numerous incentives and requirements to coordinate care across the continuum. The Transition of Care checklist enables healthcare organizations to meet Meaningful Use Stage 2 requirements for care coordination and transitions of care, Value-Based Purchasing regarding the patient’s care experience, rehabilitation, and the prevention of healthcare-acquired conditions, and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Readmissions Reduction Program guidelines aimed at reducing excessive and preventable readmissions.
In addition to the previously released Cardiac Rehabilitation module and today’s Transition of Care checklist, Zynx is announcing the Pulmonary Rehabilitation and Eating Disorders modules for healthcare facilities and providers managing multidisciplinary rehabilitation and behavioral health patients.
Future ZynxCare enhancements will continue to build on this strong foundation.
