The list underscores the role of technology in improving U.S. hospitals and health systems and spotlights the women at the forefront of the technological movement.
MIDDLETOWN, NY (August 23, 2018) – Co-founder and CEO of Nexus Health Resources Virginia Feldman, MD was among a select group of female health IT leaders featured recently in an article in Becker’s Hospital Review. The article, titled “Female Health IT Leaders to Know,” included a list of more than 90 prominent women in health IT and emphasized their significant contributions to advancing health care outcomes through technology.
“Technology has been the driving force behind Nexus Health Resources from the beginning,” said Dr. Feldman. “We knew that if we truly wanted to improve upon existing systems and advance the transitional care arena, we would need to embrace the latest technology and use it to ensure patient health outcomes were being met. In doing so, and by continuing to improve upon our existing technology, we are changing the health care system for the better by helping to reduce unnecessary hospital readmissions and decrease total medical spend.”
In compiling the list, which Becker’s Hospital Review points out is not exhaustive, they focused on women who have expertise in various technology areas, including EHRs, analytics and telemedicine. As a leading provider of transitional care services and patient engagement for acute and post-acute organizations, Nexus Health Resources utilizes cutting-edge technology in numerous ways, including through their NexusConnexions® transitional care software.
NexusConnexions enables hospitals and skilled nursing facilities to avoid unnecessary expenses and penalties by addressing the needs of patients that are currently living outside of direct medical care. The patent-pending technology automatically assembles an agenda for each patient interaction that is specific to, for example, their diagnosis, chronic conditions and payer. For each communication activity, NexusConnexions provides dialogue suggestions and condition-specific objectives, which help the user apply proven tactics to positively influence patient outcomes and care plan adherence.
