Long Term Acute Care Hospitals (LTCHs) face unique challenges in treating high acuity and medically complex patients. New payment initiatives directed by CMS place additional pressure on these organizations to deliver a higher level of quality care at a lower cost.
HCS, one of the nation’s leading healthcare software providers, offers LTCHs a way to streamline costs while improving care. Our product, HCS INTERACTANT is an integrated, single platform approach that enables you to customize your solution to your operational and clinical needs, with interoperable capabilities that range from revenue cycle management to financial management to EMR to reporting and analysis.
IT Makes a Difference
Compared to the basic automation of a paper-based process, the implementation of INTERACTANT, a fully integrated health information system, provides clinical, financial, and administrative staffs with critical access to information that is timely, consolidated, and accurate.
- Interdisciplinary Team Access – LTCHs can leverage data from multiple disciplines to support clinical decision making, automate best practices on a routine basis, and improve outcomes in a cost-efficient way.
- LTCH CARE Data Set – The HCS CARE solution enables LTCHs across the nation to meet the CMS LTCH CARE Data Set mandate – and avoid Medicare payment reductions.
- New Payment Models – Improving an LTCH’s capacity to participate in Health Information Exchanges (HIEs) or to receive clinical summaries directly from referring providers contributes to better care coordination and care transitions. This, in turn, can strengthen the partnerships required for new payment models (ACOs, ACC, MCC, pay-per-performance).
HCS’s innovation and technology consistently place us as a leader among healthcare system providers.
Our deep experience with a large client base enables us to understand the distinctive environment in which LTCHs operate, and to provide proactive support as regulatory requirements and reimbursement models change. Our INTERACTANT solution assists LTCHs across the continuum of care with automated best practices and streamlined workflows that enable interdisciplinary access and collaboration, reduce operational expenses, and improve the quality of your care.
