New Solution Enables Senior Living Providers to Achieve Efficient Transitions of Care Between Different Settings
“Due to the differences in the various care settings, facilities that provide skilled nursing and senior living services struggle with billing and managing clinical workflow as patients or residents move between settings,” said
The AHT senior living solution has been market tested through key development partnerships between AHT and two
Providers lose valuable dollars and are put in a vulnerable position when there is failure of communication between sales and clinical, finance and clinical, executive director and management team, community and resident family, or outside agencies. This is especially true when the care being provided is not being charged, often due to an assessed change in condition, and not included in the resident’s bill.
According to Chase, “Our senior living solution is resident-centric and designed to solve the unique, real-world challenges of today’s senior living community. The solution is inviting, self-explanatory and simple to navigate, allowing for ease in training, implementation and day-to-day use. More importantly, the solution solves a significant problem in the industry today – making care transitions more efficient.”
From the first point of contact with a potential resident, the community’s sales team is able to start capturing data in our Prospects CRM, creating profiles, reserving rooms, completing documentation and assessments, all prior to move-in, and all of this data transfers over to clinical with the click of a button. No duplication in effort, no information lost. The solution is also flexible enough to handle multiple regulatory environments across an entire company, while standardizing key components across the board. The Resident Evaluation Tool automatically ties custom resident assessments to community care planning, guaranteeing the appropriate care and billing levels are set for each resident. It also alerts the appropriate departments when a change of condition occurs, so revenue is never lost due to miscommunication between clinical and billing.
The AHT senior living solution powered by ALIS also eliminates challenges associated with state binders, transforming exact versions of familiar paper documents into digital forms. The compliance capability utilizes information previously entered into the resident record and pre-populates it into the state forms, eliminating the effort and errors associated with completing forms manually.
