Healthcare Research Publication Validates Real Time Medical Systems Impact on Improving Value-Based Care Outcomes with Post-Acute Analytics


Real Time Medical Systems (Real Time), the KLAS Rated, and HITRUST Certified post-acute analytics solution announced today its published article in the Management in Healthcare Journal, the major professional journal publishing in-depth, peer-reviewed articles and case studies on leadership, administration, and management in healthcare.

The article, "Improving patient outcomes while reducing readmissions with data analytics," highlights how St. Joseph's Health Accountable Care Organization (Mission Health Coordinated Care), implemented Real Time's post-acute analytics platform and instituted a post-acute nurse navigator to manage their value-based patients in the post-acute setting. Results showed a 43% reduction in readmissions, 3.2 reduction in average length of stay, and a total cost of care savings of $1.6M as it relates to the Medicare population.

"Real Time's data-driven solution provides the ability to access live post-acute patient data across care settings, enabling clinical line of sight to manage both patient and population-level quality outcomes," states Phyllis Wojtusik, Executive Vice President of Value-Based Care at Real Time. "By implementing an innovative care coordination program that includes Real Time's interventional analytics platform, St. Joseph's Health is able to proactively manage patients within their post-acute network. This affords multiple opportunities to strengthen care collaboration, improve care transitions, foster seamless implementation of standardized care pathways, and ultimately reduce total costs within post-acute networks."



With the ability to monitor patient progress at the post-acute level, St. Joseph's Health has scaled this program across all of their value-based care models - showcasing the true impact of an EHR agnostic post-acute analytics platform in improving patient and financial outcomes.
