Medline and Bishop Nursing and Rehabilitation in New York Tuesday announced a new partnership.
Through this agreement, Northfield-based Medline will provide the New York-based nursing home a portfolio of products and programs to maximize quality assurance and performance improvement efforts. In particular, the facility will utilize the abaqis Quality Management System, a management system with core components that manage survey readiness and helping facilities better comply with regulations.
Under new requirements of participation, providers were expected to complete a facility assessment to identify the resources needed to provide care and services to its residents.
Additionally, Bishop Nursing and Rehabilitation Center will leverage Real Time Medical Systems, an application that sits on top of a facility's EMR. The technology extracts up to 150 clinical data elements on every resident, several times per day, to provide a live view a patient's present conditions. Real Time's new patent-pending acuity monitor will enable staff to understand which patients are at higher risk for hospital readmissions, giving Bishop Nursing and Rehabilitation Center insight needed to respond and direct care before it becomes a readmission.
"As we embark in our partnership with Bishop, we are focused on helping the facility uncover meaningful tactics to deliver high quality care to residents and also deliver tools that augment staff satisfaction," says Scott Lichorowic, post-acute care representative, Medline.
Based out of Syracuse, Bishop Nursing and Rehabilitation Center is a 440-bed nursing home that previously operated under the name James Square Health & Rehab.
