Genesis HealthCare partnered with Nexus Health Resources to scale and streamline transitional care activities across a broader patient population and to identify and quickly address issues that could impede patient recovery at home.

MIDDLETOWN, NY (October 10, 2019) – McKnight’s Long-Term Care News announced recently that Nexus Health Resources client Genesis HealthCare was among a select group of winners who earned a 2019 McKnight’s Excellence in Technology Award. Genesis received the Bronze Award in the Transitions category for its use of NexusConnexions transitional care software to improve transition-to-home outcomes.

In December, Genesis partnered with Nexus Health Resources to enhance its existing Genesis Care Transitions program. The provider implemented the NexusConnexions platform in 18 of its high-volume centers to standardize patient follow-up activities and to identify and track the resolution of patient issues in real time.

“NexusConnexions allowed us to expand upon our existing Genesis Care Transitions program and focus on a larger patient population,” said Barbara J. Hauswald, Senior Vice President of Strategic Development for Genesis HealthCare. “As a result, we were able to more effectively track patient progress after they left our care and intervene if necessary to prevent readmissions.”

Using the NexusConnexions platform in conjunction with the Nexus Health Call Center, the Genesis Care Transitions team was able to confirm that over 70% of patients or their caregivers were reached via live telephone calls after returning home. This resulted in improved patient outcomes, fewer unnecessary hospital readmissions, and increased referrals to a Genesis facility. The facilities using the NexusConnexions software also saw a significant increase in patient satisfaction and positive social media reviews.

The McKnight’s Excellence in Technology Awards Program recognizes organizations harnessing technology to make eldercare better. In 2018 the program was expanded to include Skilled Care and Senior Living.

The webinar focused on the Genesis Care Transitions program and outlined in detail how partnering with Nexus allowed them to create a standardized approach to patient follow-up and streamline activities tracking to improve patient outcomes.

MIDDLETOWN, NY (October 02, 2019) – Barbara J. Hauswald, Senior Vice President of Strategic Development for Genesis HealthCare, and Ryan Sparks, Chief Revenue Officer for Nexus Health Resources, recently teamed up to present a webinar titled, Transition-to-Home Best Practices for Reducing SNF Readmission Penalties and Strengthening Patient Relationships. The one-hour presentation, which aired September 24th, was presented in conjunction with McKnight’s Long-Term Care News.

Hauswald and Sparks discussed how skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) are increasingly impacted by patient outcomes that occur after patients have left their building and presented best practices for developing a successful transition-to-home program. These include the need for post-discharge outreach and workflows to reduce the Skilled Nursing Facility Readmission Measure (SNFRM) penalty and strategies to strengthen relationships with patients and their families.

When asked during the Q & A segment what the biggest takeaway was for skilled care operators, Hauswald had this advice: “The one thing I would want to make sure folks do is do something. Whether it’s a simple follow-up call program or something more robust, it’s imperative that providers really accept this challenge of managing complex, chronic conditions and patients.”

In January of 2019, Genesis partnered with Nexus Health Resources to enhance its existing Genesis Care Transitions program in 18 of their high-volume centers using the Nexus Health Call Center™ and NexusConnexions® transitional care software. Since then, they have significantly improved post-discharge outcomes, reduced unnecessary hospital readmissions, and increased referrals, all while improving patient satisfaction and customer service.

The webinar is available on demand through the McKnight’s Long-Term Care News website for 12 months following the live event.
