Texas-based Cantex Continuing Care Network partnered with Nexus Health Resources® to implement a new transitional care model within its network of facilities that has improved long-term patient outcomes and reduced unnecessary hospital readmissions.
McKnight’s Long-Term Care News announced recently that Nexus Health Resources client Cantex Continuing Care Network was among a select group of winners who earned a 2018 McKnight’s Excellence in Technology Award. Cantex received the Gold award in the Transitions category for its use of NexusConnexions software to improve transitional care outcomes.
“NexusConnexions has been a game changer for Cantex facilities,” said Lara Cline, Director of Care Coordination for Cantex. “By creating a personalized agenda for each patient and facilitating patient outreach and communication after discharge, it has helped us significantly reduce post-discharge hospital readmissions—as well as clearly demonstrate to our referral sources the specific interventions performed by Cantex staff that led to fewer readmissions.”
Developed by Nexus Health Resources, NexusConnexions transitional care software enables hospitals and skilled nursing facilities to avoid unnecessary expenses and penalties by addressing the needs of patients currently living outside of direct medical care. The patent-pending technology automatically assembles an agenda for each patient interaction and provides dialogue suggestions and condition-specific objectives to help users apply proven tactics to positively influence patient outcomes and care plan adherence.
The McKnight’s Excellence in Technology Awards Program recognizes organizations harnessing technology to make eldercare better. In 2018 the program was expanded to include Skilled Care and Senior Living.
