October 11, 2016 – Atlanta, Georgia – PREMEDEX (www.PREMEDEX.com) is pleased to announce its partnership with Georgia Hospital Health Services (GHHS), the shared services division of the Georgia Hospital Association (GHA).
PREMEDEX will offer its technology-enabled service to hospitals within Georgia through the GHHS partnership. “We’ve developed a flexible, easy to use application that works with existing IT systems and enables hospitals to have consistent patient follow up and achieve quality transitional care,” states Jim Bowling, Co-Founder of PREMEDEX. The need to deliver quality patient care after discharge is growing in importance, particularly for those patients identified as a potential high-risk for readmission.
The PREMEDEX platform delivers efficient workflows with clear, concise patient messaging and robust analytics on the backend. All patient information is available in real-time to enable organizational improvement including visibility to leading indicators for HCAHPS, identifying potential intervention opportunities, and improving compliance for follow up appointments and medications. “Organizations have a tremendous focus on HCAHPS, but the latency associated with receiving HCAHPS scores leads to little ability to take action – the same with readmission, after patients are readmitted, it’s too late. Real -time information is the way to go and will be essential to survival in today’s regulatory environment,” added Van Willis, President of PREMEDEX.
The PREMEDEX platform is utilized by provider organizations around the country, managing patient communication with more than two million patients. “PREMEDEX is a very active member of the Georgia Hospital Health Services Digital Product Line. The PREMEDEX post-discharge communications management platform helps GHA member hospitals deliver across the entire continuum of care to deliver higher quality at lower costs,” added Bill Wylie, Vice President of GHHS.
PREMEDEX provides a technology enabled service platform via a cloud-based subscription model. The PREMEDEX platform and staff of healthcare coordinators streamline the communication process with patients and enable providers to capitalize on chronic care management, capture transitional care management revenue, optimize wellness programs, and reduce avoidable readmission to improve patient outcomes.
