Greensburg, Pennsylvania-based Redstone Presbyterian SeniorCare is a leading provider of premier living solutions and high-quality services for older adults. The non-profit organization has partnered with Nexus Health Resources to begin using its NexusConnexions® transitional care software at the Redstone Highlands continuing care retirement community.
Redstone offers distinct programs, including independent living, personal care services and in-patient rehabilitation on their Greensburg campus, Home and Community based services, through [email protected] Home Health and Hospice. They will implement the NexusConnexions software solution to more efficiently track and manage post-discharge follow-up activities and ensure quality health outcomes for patients who transition out of the Rehab Center at Redstone.
“In NexusConnexions, we saw an opportunity to complement our current transitional care program and strengthen our commitment to our patients’ health,” said Jacquelyn Bell, Director of Health Navigation at Redstone Highlands. “Like Redstone, Nexus Health Resources understands the importance of addressing the needs of patients during the key transition period following discharge. With NexusConnexions, we are able to further our vision of being difference makers and world changers in the lives of the patients we serve.”
NexusConnexions transitional care software allows Redstone Highlands’ staff to better manage the day-to-day activities of a transitional care team with a tailored agenda for each patient based on individual diagnosis, risk factors, and care setting. Patient and caregiver interactions are tracked using NexusConnexions reports to compare actual and target goals and see what steps resulted in preventing readmissions.
“Redstone is on the cutting edge of senior living and health care innovation,” said Ryan Sparks, co-founder and CRO of Nexus Health Resources. “Our NexusConnexions software integrates seamlessly with their existing transitional care program, resulting in better patient outcomes and significant cost savings for Redstone facilities over time.”
