Brookdale Hospital Case Managers Provide Patients CMS Quality Measures and Data Using SilverSearch
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SANDY, UTAH – February 22, 2016 – SilverVue®, a provider of hospital patient transitional care and telemedicine technologies, announced that it has partnered with the Brookdale University Hospital Medical Center in New York to utilize SilverSearch™ in patient choice for post-acute care (PAC) transitions.
Samantha Chrismas, LCSW-C/R, Assistant Director of Social Work for the Brookdale Hospital Case Management Department commented, “Once I was presented with the SilverVue concept, I recognized immediately how beneficial this system would be to the patients, their families and the Case Management Department here at Brookdale Hospital.”
Brookdale Hospital case managers and liaisons manage multiple details to help patients navigate and coordinate what they want and need in their care.
Chrismas added, “Silver Search is technology at its best. It is patient friendly, smart, efficient and it helps empower patients and their families to make the after care choices most suited for them, leading to greater patient satisfaction. In addition, it also helps the hospital comply with the IMPACT Act and other CMS patient discharge and patient choice initiatives.”
With almost 800 beds, Brookdale University Hospital Medical Center had over 18,000 admissions last year and discharged thousands of patients to post-acute care. Case managers provide patients with the SilverVue tablet so that patients can view, filter and compare PAC listings by location, insurance providers, specialty care, amenities, CMS ratings and quality measures, helping patients and their families choose a post-acute care provider.
Chrismas says, “SilverSearch is the complete little package providing a win-win situation for us all”
