Texas-based Cantex Continuing Care Network partnered with Nexus Health Resources to implement a new transitional care model within its network of facilities that has improved long-term patient outcomes and reduced unnecessary hospital readmissions.
MIDDLETOWN, NY (May 05, 2018) – Cantex Continuing Care Network was among a select group of finalists who received a 2018 DecisionHealth Platinum Award. The awards recognize individuals and organizations working to ensure a “safe, quality and sustainable health care system” and to enhance the patient experience across the continuum of care.
“We are beyond honored to receive this award,” said Lara Cline, Director of Care Coordination for Cantex. “The health care system is changing, putting greater emphasis on quality of care and the long-term health outcomes of patients after they are home. Cantex is proud to be at the forefront of that change and will continue to work toward improvements in transitional care.”
Cantex was recognized for Outstanding Achievement in Community Care Settings, which spotlights successes in meeting population health needs outside of a facility. They recently partnered with Nexus Health Resources to implement a new transitional care model that enables them to manage all live and automated calls with the help of NexusConnexions® software and the Nexus Health Call CenterTM.
Components of the calls include confirming attendance at follow-up PCP appointments, ensuring prescriptions have been filled, addressing key areas of health literacy and assisting with the management of chronic conditions. Nexus Health Call Center identifies patients who desire home health and return to skilled nursing facility. By working in close coordination with the internal Cantex team, these patients receive highest quality care. Since implementing the program, Cantex has seen a positive impact on preventing readmissions after their resident returned home, as well as a significant increase in revenue.
“Our goal has always been to improve efficiency in transitional care for hospitals and acute care facilities and ensure their patients have the resources they need to continue recovering at home,” said Co-founder and CEO of Nexus Health Resources Dr. Virginia Feldman. “Coupling high quality care with increased rereferrals for our clients has been a winning formula. This award is the realization of these goals.”
