WellSky Unlocks New Capabilities To Power Unmatched Visibility And Coordination For Patient Care Across Acute And Home Settings

OVERLAND PARK, KAN.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

WellSky, a leading health and community care technology company, today announced that WellSky clients have gained access to new capabilities to facilitate increased insight and continuity between acute and home health settings for improved patient care. With the demand for home-based care continuing to rise, it’s crucial that healthcare providers be equipped with actionable data to proactively manage patient populations and excel in value-based care arrangements.

With WellSky Value-Based Insights and WellSky CareInsights™ solutions, home health agencies can access real-time hospital admission data from the CarePort®, powered by WellSky national network of nearly 2,000 hospitals. This data provides enhanced visibility into care events outside of the home – such as when a patient is admitted to a hospital or presents to the emergency department (ED) – in addition to timely and actionable readmission analytics. This increased insight enables home health providers to make more informed clinical and business decisions, including when to deploy necessary care interventions and how to drive better agency performance in value-based models.

“WellSky is enabling visibility into the full spectrum of care for providers throughout the patient journey,” said Dr. Lissy Hu, President of Connected Networks at WellSky. “As the leading solution with such a connected ecosystem, we’re thrilled to offer our clients the ability to bolster their care coordination efforts to better support the growing delivery of care in the home and community.”

Historically, hospitalization diagnosis information was difficult for agencies to gather, as it needed to be manually compiled from the acute setting. With WellSky Value-Based Insights and WellSky CareInsights solutions, providers eliminate the need to track information in spreadsheets and decrease time spent following up with hospital partners – enabling home health agencies to improve staff efficiency, create tighter partnerships with referral sources, and ensure continuity of care.

With one in three home- and community-based providers leveraging WellSky solutions, WellSky’s comprehensive network will provide clients with real-time patient-level insights and visibility across more than 2,500 additional home health agencies in the U.S. and more than 300,000 active patients on census. Clients in acute and post-acute settings, physician offices, and payers can now leverage an extensive network for home-based care delivery, allowing them to better bridge acute to post-acute care, provide more coordinated care for higher-acuity patients, and manage more patients recovering at home.

By providing visibility into readmissions, performance, and outcome analytics, as well as real-time events from acute and home settings, CarePort and WellSky solutions support providers and payers in making data-driven decisions for their patients to mitigate readmission risk, drive performance, strengthen relationships with partners, and better understand patient clinical and utilization history for both acute and post-acute stays.
