This connectivity allows providers to identify Vytalize Health patients in their care and understand the benefits of its post-acute provider network.
At discharge, hospital care teams can refer patients to the most appropriate post-acute providers for continued care.
The partnership, which is already operational in several markets, also aims to enhance communication and collaboration between physicians.
It provides critical insights into a patient’s care journey, enabling providers to close care gaps, reduce unnecessary services and testing, prevent readmissions, and track patient locations and care timelines.
Vytalize Health chief product officer Frank Bordonaro said: “By partnering with WellSky, we can ensure these connections happen in real-time, such as when patients experience critical care events like a visit to the emergency room, which is a key to success in value-based care.”
WellSky connected networks president Dr Lissy Hu said: “We have built solutions and services that give Vytalize Health’s partner providers the information they need to take directed action and succeed in value-based care – all while continuing to put patient care first.”
